You got my attention with this, so I contacted them about making a tank divider for my 40 gallon with this stuff. I bought one from Pet Smart and it is horrible. It is deep enough, but is too short by 2 or so inches from the top and the clips are horrible.

The divider would be for emergencies only, and it would certainly be better than the useless POS I bought and can't use.

Thanks for mentioning it. I would have never thought to use foam for a temporary problem.
