I cant see the picture, but as long as it's a gallon or more and you can safely heat it, I dont see why not :)

There's a thread floating around of an empty animal cracker container turned into a betta home. As long as you clean this one properly (I can't see it but I'm sure I know what you're talking about), it should really be fine.

And for those of you who couldn't see the pic (idk what happened, i guess it got erased) here it is:

it's a pretty big jar. so i think it will be really suitable.


**also, may i use any vinegar or does it specifically have to be white vinegar?
is there a thread anywhere about cleaning a jar for a fish?

Yeah, that's what a figured it looked like.

White vinegar is pretty much what you use for cleaning. It's really cheap, too. Cider vinegar and the different wine vinegars probably aren't a good idea for cleaning with.

I think white vinegar works best. I haven't used it, but I don't think dark vinegars would work quite the same.

Okay. Thanks guys.

Sorry I'm asking so many questions. I just don't want to get a betta and put him through hell if I don't know what I'm doing, you know?

But does anyone know if there's another method for cleaning it?

and also, the white vinegar method, should i let the hot water sit in it for a bit?

You can let the water sit, it might help. Considering the fact that cheese balls are fairly greasy, hot water should help loosen it up so you can get it off.

Don't feel bad about asking questions, better safe than sorry! Everyone here is more than happy to offer you advice.

Thank you, Capricorn :).

& of course, another question: How would I know if the vinegars all gone?
& if it isn't fully washed off will it kill my fish?
