Exclamation Ceramic glazed pot as hiding spot?

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 don't see a problem with it as long as it's clean. I have one in my tank.

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 have some glass votives but my bettas don't seem to like them much. I guess they don't like anything clear. lol

What a wonderful idea, a little pot would be so cute in the tank.

I was looking at decor on PetSmart's & PetCo's websites. I don't think I could order decorations that way online. I like to see/touch/feel these things in person before deciding.

Thatds a good idea to see things in person because a lot of them have sharp edges.

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.

Yeah. I've never tried ordering decorations online, and I don't plan on it for that very reason.
