Indoor pond for wilds

'ello all! I am considering, in the future, getting a 4 foot, roughly 6 inch deep water depth, rigid kiddie pool and using it to keep wild bettas. Assuming a taller wall was put around the pool to prevent kamikaze fish from meeting their doom, do you think this setup would work well? How well does the plastic used in rigid kiddie pools hold up to acidic water?

I don't know about the water acidity...but I know that many goldfish breeders use the kiddie pools for breeding and grow-outs. Maybe try a goldfish-specific forum?

Interesting concept though! :)

I don't think it's a bad idea, my biggest problem would be that wilds are crazy jumpers so something significant would have to be rigged up to prevent that and that a top view wouldn't be my first choice for viewing wilds, but that's not a big deal

No clue about how the plastic would hold up (do you know the specific plastic it would be made up of?) in acidic water but unless you have very acidic water or a sensitive material I wouldn't anticipate it being a huge issue.

What species are you looking at keeping?
