I just took some projector plastic sheets from office and cut some small holes for water flow and inserted into my tank..

Low budget but gets the job done

I do the same thing, I just place a piece of a flat thing made of plastic or something, make some holes, and place it in the tank.

I use the clear knitting sheets and put the binding sleeves on all 4 sides just didn't have any pics on phone and I'm on vacation so found one online that looks similar. Total cost was about $6 for 3 dividers which I put in 10 gallon to seperate bettas

I would love detailed instructions on how to make this and even where you get the supplies and I agree the different look on both sides is a very good idea!

This is what I made today! To protect my poor fish from over protective Jack Dempsey parents.

I got everything I needed at Home Depot.
