Best way to divide a "Frat" House?

Best way to divide a "Frat" House? Just got a 15 gallon tank that I plan to divide for 3 bettas and I was wondering what would be the best way to divide the tank for?

Straight up and down, into three equal sections. Like the pic below in my opinion. I just did this myself with a 10 gal. I have it half full so I can slowly introduce the last few gallons and save myself on a few water changes.

I should have clerified, like the best materials. Would the comercially available tank dividers be ok?

Sorry for the double post but time ran out on editing. I was wondering if there was maybe any aquarium safe paint I could use to paint commercial dividers since they are clear?

Oh yeah those will work if you want to spend 10 bucks a divider. I used canvas mesh from Michales (craft store) and straws (with a slit down the side) to keep them straight. I've heard of people using aquarium safe foam/sponges, glass cut to the tank, "grass wall" (can take a while to grow). ummm I'm trying to think of other ways. As for painting I"m not to sure on that.

I think i found my answer. Doing something like this and then maybe java moss walls? Or would this block to much filtration?

@Ivandert: How did you secure them to the sides of the tank?

I didn't. I cute them to be within one square of fitting in there perfectly and then slipped a straw (like a normal drinking one, clear, split down the side) over the mesh. It digs into the gravel and holds it relatively straight and gives it just enough pressure to make it flush to the side of the tank
