Hiding spaces...eep!

I'm assuming that since I've seen them in tanks and being recommended that the terra-cotta pots are fishie safe, but I want to make sure. My Dad is saying that ammonia breaks down the pots and that they will leach into the water and clog the filter...T/F?

I would really like to use them and have seen them being used... But I want to check so I don't kill my fishies.

A lot of people use terra-cotta pots for their female sorority tanks and I haven't heard one bad thing about them. You can smash little holes in them if you wanted to, but make sure that you sand down the sharp edges.

Dunno what this has to do with terra cotta pots but no Abdul you cannot keep males with females except for breeding and that is done under close supervision and the male and female are separated after the spawn.

Amazing. You can also keep a male and female in a divided tank.
