PVC jars for jarring males?

Hi, all. As I research and gather materials, I've been deciding what to use to jar males should I get a successful spawn. I looked into beanie baby boxes, but I don't like that the males have so little horizontal space in which to swim with them. Then I came across these PVC half-gallon grip-it jars.

Would there be any problem in using these for jarring males, other than them taking up more room than beanie baby boxes? Thanks!

Ive used the 1g size and they work very well and very easy to clean. I used the big mason jars before but like these much better.

Great! Do you recommend the one-gallon over the half-gallon, then?

Yeah, actually, looking at them, the gallon wouldn't take up much more space and aren't that much more expensive, so I think I'll go with those.

If you'd rather do glass, here are a couple of places to buy large glass jars in bulk. Half-gallons start at $1.33, full gallons start at $2.09.

Glass does break, but plastic is harder to clean, especially plastic with shapes. heat transference is another concern. Plastic insulates - but it keeps heat out as well as in. Glass transfers easily.
if you're heating them with a heat mat or tape, then plastic would likely be best, if you're going with the warm room/closet method, then you'd want glass.
A closet with a storm door on it, filled with shelves of jars of bettas is a very pretty thing.

Ah, thanks. Yeah, I was going to use the small, warm room method, so maybe glass would be better.

Gah. These Anchor Hocking 1-gallon glass cracker jars would be so nice. But $6 each is the cheapest I see them. :-/
