If you are going more permanent, get a peice of plexi glass or lexan (same thing just brand names).

The things on the sides above look like the things that come with the ones from an LFS.

If this is going to be permanent, I would recommend siliconing it in place as well just for some extra strength, if you ever take it out, you can scrape the silicone back off again with a razor blade or paint scraper.

plexiglass- good if you're going to have to look at it for a while.
eggcrate- good, fast, cheap, can use the rest of the eggcrate for other stuff

silicone if semi permanent, suction cups placed on both side of divider is temporary, also can reinforce with rocks and other decor against the divider as needed

exactly, petsmart to be precise, i used them to fit flush with the glass, and cut the plexi a 1/4" shy so i can adjust it slightly, and for a more finished look... you can sand them with rough sandpaper to make them opaque and keep fish from seeing eachother... my rhoms stared eachother down 24-7 so...
