any way to minimize contamination from new betta?

I recently lost one of my fish in a divided tank setup, and want to get a new one. However, I'm afraid introducing a new betta from a pet shop could introduce disease to the tank, and to the healthy fish on the other side of the divider.

Do any of you guys take any precautionary measures before introducing a fish to an existing community?

You could set up a Quarantine Tank. It's a way to ensure no disease in an existing tanks. You could use a Kritter Keeper, or even a Sturdy Plastic Bin.
You just have to keep the fish in there for a few weeks. And then, if it seems healthy, you could carefully put it in the Community tank.
