Terrible, terrible feeling. PLEASE cover those holes up with something.
That happened to my betta a few days ago as well . My dad broke open the pot with some pliars. My betta was laying in a sort of coma for a couple days but today he got up and he's better. Yes, plug the holes or make the gravel over top of it . Believe me, I had thought about the holes too but I thought it was a long shot, and I regret it, my betta has missing scales now..

anyhoww I'll upload some pictures later. maybe after I rearrange the tank tomorrow. also the photo uploader isn't working

I love your tank and your bettas! Where did you get those shells for your tank? I've been wanting to put some in a couple of my tanks, but just don't know which ones are "fish safe".

oh these horror stories with the pots. That scares me. I think i'll just put a few shot glasses down for my betta and ADF to swim in. I have bigger sized shot glasses too

When I got my pot I used a big garden rock and just broke off the base of the pot, so the bettas can just swim right through it. It's really easy, and you don't have to worry about anything happening.

That would work .
I think I'm just gonna get an actual cave now,
here's his tank i just took these pictures (:











3 gallon Aquaview 360 (:
As you can see it's not filled up all the way that's so Venus can get to the surface easier with his injuries.
When it's up to the top then there's bubbles in the water, but right now it doesn't go any higher than the riser tube.

Awesome tank! I love the green/purple/red combo. Do you have any photos of the tank at night, with the LED lighting on? How much does it light it up?

Thanks! Ummm I do but they're pretty poor quality. Maybe I can get a photo of it tonight! And yeah, I like the colors too. As you can imagine, so does Venus cause he blends in pretty good.
It lights up pretty well. And the LED light can go different colors, in the photo it was on orange but it can be red or yellow, blue or purple or pink (:

Really cool! I was looking at this tank awhile ago. The main thing I wasn't crazy about was the lid flopping around.......and it sorta reminded me of a trashcan. Haha! But yours doesn't look like a trash can at all. I guess having decor makes a difference from looking at it empty, in a store. :P

Yeah... the lid is a problem I wish I could replace it especially since I have cats I'm worried they might get in the tank one day but normally they don't really try
