Dividing a Bow Front...

I want to divide my 6 gallon tank into 2, possibly 3 sections (For bettas). It is an odd shape, so I thought I could stick a male on each side, with 2 or 3 female bettas in the middle. The thing is, my tank has a bow-front. It pretty much trashed my idea.

Well, we should know the question now.

-Would there be any possible way to divide a bow-front tank?
-Has anyone had any experience with this?

Hmm. I would think that as long as the curve wasn't too deep then as long as the divider was thin enough it should still hold. Adding a little bit of sealant would definitely keep it in place but would be unsightly if not done extremely carefully.

That is what I was worried about.

It would be fine if the fish couldn't fit in the space, but since they are bettas, I am worried.

Would you like a pic of the front of the tank?

A pic might be helpful, aye.

When i said that i was assuming the curve was only side to side, not up and down. If it curves up and down as well it would be trickier still.
