How To Diy Tank Divider For 40g?

My two adult goldfish in the tank keep spawning (almost every sunday at this point) and the female keeps getting injured in the process. I thought I could keep them together but it doesn't seem to be working out. All of the plastic mesh I find at store is too small for use in the 40 gallon tank and I really don't want to buy an overpriced divider. At this point I am either dividing the tank or getting rid of the male because he is roughing her up pretty bad and I think he would have a better home with someone else. Any ideas on what to use that's large enough?

And unrelared question but its normal for a goldfish to turn all white, yes? I'm just over paranoid I've read a whole bunch posts and blah blah blah. Just making sure

Maybe you could use several pieces of the mesh and saw them together with a nilon
