Dividing Tank With Cloth..

I don't got any plastic nets or anything to divide my tank. Is there any problem on dividing the tank with cotton or polyester cloths?

I would suggest it unless you can actually get the cloths really sturdy. The material might be a hosting site for algae, and things to grow from.

Do it cause any fungal problems or diseases to the fishes?

I’d imagine it could leach dye after a while and that can be harmful. What kinda tank/fish are you trying to split?

There is a lot easier ways to do it. My favourite is plastic craft mesh. It allows water through it, and can be cut to size.

I personally do not like DIY dividers, unless made sturdy.
LifeWithPets makes a good divider, I use that type, and it's very sturdy!

I’ve heard of egg crate cut to size. If all else, rigid food safe plastic, glass and then using suction cups to hold in place. The biggest thing is that if it’s ansolid divider you need to make sure water flow is getting to both sides either with 2 filters or rigging something up.

Plastic canvas, zip ties, and plastic stitch markers can be used together to customize this in a variety of ways. All are cheap and readily available at places like walmart and craft stores.

Zip ties to join pieces that are not long or wide enough on their own. Or to customize the shape or attach it to other things etc and so on....

Fabric decomposes very quickly in water.
