Diy cheap tank divider

Anyone have any tips? Materials etc - basically I want to be able to keep my fry in the tank seperated as husband is getting narky about the number of tanks scattered around the house lol... Thought if I can keep the babies safe in the main tank would cut one tank down ;p

you can get plastic needle point sheets at a craft store and build a fry box just stitch it together with fishing line my wife made one for me a few years ago worked great
and you can make it as big as you want

I'm on vacation so these are all online pics so it's not my actual tank but the blue pic shows basic concept but input the trim on all 4 sides bc I'm keeping guppy fry seperated and if u don't put the trim/brace on the bottom and top they will just swim right under/over
