Backlash Coffe cups probably will be fine too. You never know which is more safe coffe cups or terracotta clay as to matereal, because nowdays who know what they use during manufacturing...(everything made in China). I agree, coffe cups look nice, I had one small cup with a plant in tank before.
They say terracotta clay lows PH, I will see if it is true as PH of my water is very high...
As to rough surface, mine are pretty polished. I also tryed to chose the best polished when was grabbing them on the store shelf. There is really no place that could harm on my pots. If you ever going to buy pots with hole, they say you need to close it with smth as Bettas can harm themself in those. As I said my pots at 3" have no holes and as to 2" ones the holes exreemly small - around 3-4mm.

Hi Lena,

I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with using terracotta pots... I used them for years as caves when I kept Cichlids..

I also understand what you are saying regarding the possibility of the coffee cups being less than ideal, (lead paint?) especially those carrying the "made in China" label..

Cheers..

Backlash Oh, you did not understand me. I wanted to say that both terracotta pots and cups made in China. So we risk with both. This what I wanted to say. :) Maybe even we risk more with pots as coffe cups made for people and pots for plants. I heard some stories about not good clay used in some products when I lived in Ukraine. Well, lets hope for better :).
