Exclamation Is this a safe idea?!?!

A 4L wine bottle well rinsed for a Betta tank.... an inch wide opening, no reek of wine at all, scraped clean, it looks like a cartoon rum jug but clear... is it safe?

I don't think the 1" opening is a good idea

Because... it's one inch wide.


That is:

1) not going to allow enough water to come out during water changes (safely)
2) will disable the fish to have a large surface area to breathe
3) will not allow you to pretty much ever get the fish out safely again


I really really hope you do not do this.

How would you pour the betta out without him getting hit by rocks?

If you must do this, (which I think you could find a much more suitable container for a fish) then at least cut off the top to make it wider so you can at least fit the net in.

If you want a unique fish tank, check craft and thrift stores. There are tons of cool, large, and safe containers for fish there. :)

Sorry, I must be confused. Is this what the bottle looks like?
