Exclamation can Ariel be in my tank?

well, right now, i'm in disneyland! WOO! anyways, i saw this ariel snowglobe (from little mermaid), and i would just LOOOOOOVE to put her in it! it would look sooooo cute and awesome! and it makes sense, since, ariel is a mermaid, underwater, and in the picture, it shows her swimming with her friends. but there's 2 problems i'm not sure about...:

1.) if the globe breaks(IT IS PLASTIC. not glass), and the water gets in the tank, will it kill my *FUTURE* betta? (there are those glitter looking flakes)

2.) i live in texas. and i'm pretty sure the water capacity in this globe is MORE than 3 oz. so,how can i bring it on the plane? i would really love this! a great decoration to my *FUTURE* tank, and a nice reminder about disneyland.

has anyone tried this before? PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR STORIES!

Red Velvet go HARD.

I wouldn't... but I might be overly cautious.

If there is glitter on the outside of the globe (the base of the globe) I wouldn't. I probably wouldn't anyway, they don't make snow-globes fish-safe, I don't think.

The paint/glaze would probably harm the fish.

The paint should be non-toxic as it is a toy,but I still wouldnt trust it.Besides if the globe did leak and the water got into your tank water it could be fatal for your fish (to keep the water clear in the globe it must be treated with bleach or something).
