I don't think it's good for them, but I'm pretty sure that it won't outright kill them like bleach would.. as long as you give it a good couple rinses in hot water and then let it air dry, you should be in good shape.

If it turns out nice, I may be heading out to target to get cheesy puffs.

How much water does it hold?

What is the reason you want to use this jar? It would seem much safer to use another option - those inexpensive Kritter Keepers, for instance.

Lol, I have one that I emptied and cleaned and is now holding extra gravel. I am also keeping it just in case I need a quick temporary home should something happen.

I need to re-check it, but on the bottom there will be the recycle symbol with a number in it. Make sure it is the number 5. It seems a bit flimsy to me, the sides scratch too easily, and the sides bow a wee bit when full of water, but it was able to hold water for a whole week without any issues, so it'll be fine.

Getting the sticker off sucks, especially since it leaves behind the goop. A bit of cooking oil on a wash cloth should be able to get it off. After I did that, I cleaned mine with soap and water (yeah, I know, I know) because I had no vinegar or bleach on hand. But, I used literally one drop of soap, and that thing is roughly 2 gallons. I rinsed super well with a lot of hot water. I think I went as far as to rinse it like 3 times a day for several days just to be sure.

IMO, it's not a good fish house, because it is much taller than it is wide. If I were to use it for aquatic puruposes, it'd probably be to QT plants, or maybe as a little shrimp tank.
