I got mine at a craft store - and used a screwdriver and hammer to enlarge the hole then softened it with sand paper.....

Do you think a nail-filer would work? My mom has plenty I could use if some break out.

Thank you ~

Actually, I had the same question about cleaning those pots. I'll share my answer.

The person said that I need to soak it like you would DW because it's so porous that it could have anything on it, and when you put it in your tank you'd might throw something off. When algae starts growing on it, then it's okay.

That's the answer I got.

I grabbed mine from A.C. Moore, got some small ones for 89 cents, and some medium sized ones for 99, I took one of them and carefully broke it in half, then sanded down all the edges really well with a fine grit sandpaper, rinsed it very well a few times in hot water, let it sit for awhile, and put it in my tank, the hole isn't an issue, since it's in the gravel the way I have it, but as for plugging it up, I'd probably just be lazy and plop some of the aquarium silicone in it, maybe grab a stone around the size of the hole and silicone it even.

But as for cleaning, I just washed it really well with warm/hot water, and kept going until there was nothing but clear water coming off of it.

Seems like it hasn't bothered my fish in the month it's been in there.
