Ok so I am fairly new to the planted tank side. Anyways I purchased some floating plants I also have a hob. And we all know the 2 don't mix. So as I sit here watching TV tonight, I tried to come up with a divider to keep the floaters to one side.
I searched online come up with nothing. Besides people using tubing and suction cups.
Well I finally figured it out. I can make a diy to make these and list part numbers. But I work at a corrugated factory and have a good amount of supplies to deal with on the free side so not sure how much it would cost. So you will have to let me know if you want a diy.
Anyways I had some moulding left from my diy glass top. I used approximately 12.5" of left over stuff. Also used suction cups and a channel that I found at work to connect everything together. I'll post a pic of the channel when I get to work.
First I cut the moulding to a L shape
Then I cut a slit in about 1/2" and bent it 90 degrees.
This then fit in my channel with the suction cups are attached to.
Then just placed it in the tank. Simple yet so effective.

Side under water view:
Best thing is its adjustable for water level too.
If you want more details I can post them once it's not so late.
