I would like to add a terracta pot to my aquarium. Wondering if anyone has had any bad effects after adding one of these pots to their tank. Read they may change your ph level. Do they raise or lower your ph? Raising my ph would not be good.
Not sure yet. Want the pot for my new bolivian rams. I got a male and female. Not so sure they will be a maiting pair though. They stuck together like glue for a week. Yesterday the male chased the female away everytime she came close.
there completely harmless i had at one stage a tank set up for julichromis with a big pile small 1 litre pots at the back of the tank from floor to surface,and it yeilded my first susessful batch of young.
with a bit of care and an old hacksaw you can cut terracotta pots in half neatly if you take it slow and keep them wet while you cut
the only possible contamination can come from used pots that have had plants in as the pot will absorb minerals from the soil but this is negligable
the only problem is that there getting harder to find as most stores prefer the cheaper plastic rubbish i had a hard time recently finding some to re-pot some cacti
