Plastic grates from Home Depot or an equivelant. Another idea would be to make a screen with a frame. Just make sure the materials won't rust. Cut the materials to size and whala. You got a tank divider.

ditto the acrylic or plexiglass.
drill some reasonable size holes in it for flow, run garden hose down the edges so it doesn't scratch anything then use suction caps from a pump or heater to secure it into place.
not very attractive, but very effective.
