I've seen alot of terra-cotta pots being used as caves, and I was wondering if it would be safe to use a ceramic one that's glazed. I don't see why not, but better safe than sorry. I'm redoing my tank tonight, and I have one that really goes with my new theme. Thanks!
I heard someone on this forum say they had a problem with a ceramic thing, but I think it is pretty rare. To be extra safe, you could soak it for a few days to a couple weeks before you add it to the tank.
I just went to a dollar store and bought some weird candle holder things for hiding places and decorations for my Betta. Seriously, 1 dollar at the dollar store vs 13 for something tacky at the pet shop.
I know, I saw a couple of cute possibilities at two different stores. They had good "hideway' features, but I didn't like how rough the undersides felt. If fish are going to go in there, they're prolly very likely to get scratched!
I saw this turtle at PetSmart and think it's really cute, but I wasn't sure about the underside smoothness.
