Safe terra cotta pots?

I have a couple small terra cotta pots that I'd like to use as caves in my betta tank. I've seen a lot of people using them in their aquascapes and they look really nice. However, the holes in the bottom are smaller than a quarter, and a fish could easily get stuck in one. How can I plug the hole to make the pots fish safe?

I used some of that cheap filter floss to block holes in my terracotta holes. It worked well for me, otherwise other people may have some suggestions to make.

Yea, cram something in the hole and it should be fine. I've seen people use aquarium silicone as well.

What exactly could I cram in the hole that would be safe?

Aquarium silicone. You can purchase it from any local pet store that sells fish supplies.
