Oh cool thanks! I've read around online about (what I could find anyway) and a lot of people have suggested picking up these items at craft stores to keep the costs down when owning a fish.

I put my first betta in a vase from a craft store. I got glass gems from there, also. That year, everything I got for my fish, including the fish, cost me under $20.

I was thinking about just boiling/rinsing everything in boiling water if I did decide to get them. :)

I know right! Well, you do know you can use bleach on kids toys and baby bottles right? I'm assuming it's relatively safe if rinsed and dried out completely.

I won't use the bleach though, that does scare me to use in general anyways! :)

We have bleached our cups and pitchers that tea stains. As long as you rinse them really really well and wash them with dish detergent and rinse some more it's perfectly fine. And honestly...even if there is a trace of it left - that little bit of a trace isn't going to do much to you. Now a fish...well that might be another story.

So did you decide to buy the bowls and rocks?

I'm deciding tomorrow. I'll be making a trip to that area and I wanted to check them over one more time. :)
