for a diy just get yourself some aquarium silicone glue, get your tank, measure the inside width and cut a couple of baffles either by yourslf or get it cut at a glass cutting place and glue it together. here's a pic i found on google of a diy for reference.
believe me, the extra few $ is well worth it...... I could never understand when hobbiest go so cheap on equipment because they want to save a few $, then buy live stock to have them die prematurely and turn around and spend MORE $ to replace that live stock on a cycle! The equipment also makes the hobby easier to maintain water quality. There's places you can go cheap but there should be a minimum point you shouldn't go below. My newest fish in my tank is probably around 5 years old so believe me equipment goes a long way.
