make sure you plug the hole with aquarium silicone, some bettas like to get their heads stuck in the holes in the bottom.

I've had a couple in the past and really liked them, they are visually appealing and nice for your betta to hide in too.

You can also probably find some small ceramic pots at your local craft store. I found a bunch on sale :) the ones I have are pretty small, but they are for decorative purposes so they don't have a hole in the bottom. But they are the perfect size for my small tanks! I'm sure you'd be able to find something similar if you looked. I didn't really search for anything else since the ones I found at first were perfect.

Ceramic pots are also usually painted with a glaze over the paint so it won't come off in the water. But the painted ceramic will also add a bit more color to your tank :) my girls love their little pots.

I also have terracotta ones I haven't used yet. I gave one to a friend for his Betta boy. Definitely plug up the hole with silicone before using it. Although aquarium safe silicone can be pricey. My small tube was $9.

It should be fine as long as it hasn't been washed with soap or any detergents have been in.
