    Hi! :)
    So I want to make a tank divider to separate 5+ platy from a male fighting fish in a 120L tank

    The dimensions are 61 cm x 48 cm x 51 cm (l x w x h)

    Does anyone have any suggestions for how to make a tank divider that he can’t see through, that fits the tank?

    *edit* they do not currently live with a fighting fish, he is in his own tank :)

    I would use rigid plastic, and you can drill holes for water flow.
    My personal favorite for dividers is the LifeWithPets brand, it's solid plastic and fits tightly.

    I have 4 platy and a betta and they get along pretty well in a 10 gallon.
    I do have a good amount of live plants and rocks/wood in the tank for hiding spots.
    The betta will chase platy's that are too close but not always, also gets tired /bored / finds something else pretty quick while doing figure 8's chasing a platy under and over decorations.
    I saw more aggression in a male platy chasing a new smaller female who learned to stand her ground and since he doesn't show the same aggression.
