Exclamation plastic hamster tunnel fishsafe?

would a plastic tunnel shaped like driftwood be safe to put in my tank and can anyone give an estimate as to what the smallest hole is that bettas can swim through safely?

I'm not 100% sure but I think if you rinsed it in hot water it should be fine. And as for hole sizes if you can fit your thumb in it it's safe for bettas.

Ive used hamster tunnels (plastic ones) before many times in my tanks, just make sure you rinse them with hot water like said before :) Should be fine.

As others have mentioned you will be fine. These things have to resist Hamster teeth & saliva chewing on them as well so would have to be non toxic to begin with.

You'll want to make sure that an adult's thumb can fit through all the holes. I don't know how old you are so I thought I'd toss that in there. =]

And your idea sounds neat! =]
