Terra Cotta pot?

I saw that some of you have terra cotta pots in your tanks, i plan on getting my guy a bigger tank and i really like how the terra cotta pot looks in a tank with "natural" type rocks and plants. My question is did you use a regular pot from like a gardening place or did you buy it specfic for fish?
thanks in advance :)

I got mine at Home Depot in the gardening section. Just make sure it's clean and doesn't have any glaze, paint, etc.

I got mine in the garden section. They are cheap, but my bettas never cared for them. I'm going to replace mine with more cave-like things.

I got 'em from the gardening section at Walmart, 87 cents each! I love them, so do the girls. They pretty much ignore their cave, though.

They are only safe if you plug the drainage hole. They are exactly the size of a betta's head. They will get trapped and rip their scales off trying to get free.
