Option A - Buy a tank divider at your local store Top Fin&#0174 Tank Dividers - Fish Care - Fish - PetSmart
Option B- Get a piece of acrylic, drills holes in it, and silicon it in the middle of a dry aquarium

I get what you mean, just make sure it has holes for water circulation

Not sure if i read it on this forum or another but someone posted that they got some needlepoint boards/patterns at that Michaels craft store.
Thin, semi-rigid,perforated,easy to cut.
Cut slightly oversize and a couple dabs of silicone to keep it in place

Guess it does help to have a betta person around, lol.
Tank Dividers @ petfish.net
The first one is probably the easiest and nicest looking one. I wouldn't do the second one in a 5g, it's just too small.
