local hardware store have them cut you peice of 10inch by 12 peice of plexi glass then you get to watch them make threatening faces at each other... you can keep it in place by a couple dabs of pure silicon and drill holes in it to allowwater flow and filtration

Another thing that works well is the plastic meshes they sell at craft stores. It's cheap, has holes in it already, and its easy to cut.

Yep, tyylym's idea is really good! I can't really help too much cuz I've never had a divided tank, but if you want advice on bettas, thats somethin I can help with!

There is a thread in the DIY section of the forum that tells how to make one with plastic canvas. The fish may be able to see each other through the holes. IDK

Why would it need to be clear?
