Is this rock cave too small?

Hopefully a fairly easy question. I have this rock cave and was wondering if the opening will be too small for a betta. I didn't really want it to be a trial and error kind of deal where I find my fish stuck in the opening. I'd rather have some input and if you guys think it's too small, then I'll cover it up with something. Thanks!

It looks plenty big to me. My betta often swims through smaller.

Thanks! I guess I forgot to ask about this one but based on the first one, I think this one might be too small. Not sure though! It's a tiny bit smaller than the size of the nickel, if that's a helpful alternative to my finger.

I looked at Petco, Petsmart, and Walmart for good rock caves and silk plants and wasn't able to find any. Petco had one silk plant but I didn't like it at all. I ended up getting the rock cave and plants at www.thatpetplace.com. It's a very neat site!

Can you stick your thumb in it and out, EASILY? If so, it should be fine. I hear people use "two fingers" as well.

Hey, that's a good rule of thumb.

Yes, my thumb fits easily. Not two fingers though. Thanks for the tip!
