Qt for 'pair' of blue throat triggers

I have a pair of blue throat triggerfish coming in on Thursday and was wondering about quarantining them. I have a 29g tank just sitting around that I would like to use.
Should I silicone a piece of acrylic in the middle to see how the act with each other or should I invest in a screen tank divider?
They were marked as small when I ordered them so I'm thinking a 29g tank will be big enough for a few weeks.
Any input is welcomed!
Thanks in advance

If that is all you have I guess it will be OK. Ideally you`ll need something bigger. I hope they are going in a much bigger tank.

My display is a 225g. They will have plenty of room to grow and flourish

Acrylic will block your water flow unless your putting a bunch of holes in it. If there going in the main tank together I wouldn't separate them now. Better to make sure everyone's good in a small tank before you have to chase one in your main tank to get it out.

The shipment came in late and I missed getting them right from the delivery guy. They are at my LFS and they are sending me pictures at least every day. Click image for larger version
