I have a 10 gallon tank all set up and ready for two MALE bettas. I obviously need to make a divider for them, but i have not seen any in any pet stores. Please tell me how i can make my own.
Please do not answer saying anything about is it a proper tank, do you have the right heating ect because i have been fish keeping for 17 years and already know what i am doing, i have just never dealt with a divider before.

Most pet shops have spare suctions. Get a few of those, the ones that have 2 suction cups with a thin slit in the middle to grab thin glass.
Then, go to a bookshop. You can get plastic boards, that are either translucent or opaque. They are about the thickness of a glass, but they are quite cheap and the good thing is you can easily cut them up for your desired size because it isn’t nice looking having a huge piece of glass towering through the tank midway.
Anyway, take the plastic board, cut it up to your desired size, slip on 2 of the suction things at each side (so you will need a total 4) and slide it midway through your tank, and your divider is done!
Better than glass in my opinion. Just did it yesterday. Lightweight, easy to manipulate, cheaper.
