Vodka bottle fish tank?

I'm wondering what people's opinions are on using a vodka bottle as a fish tank. This is the bottle:




It is a 750mL bottle... I think it would look really cool, but due to its size, I'm not sure about using it. I've had people suggest putting a betta in it, but is it too small? And is it safe, since it used to hold vodka? Poor drunk fish...

Ugh... just found a video on youtube that someone posted of a betta in one of those... and it made my heart hurt. It's clearly much too small.

Are there any tiny fish that would be happy in there?

A dead fish would have no problem in there.. could even keep the vodka in it. Far too small for anything living.

Can you fill it with a coloured liquid and seal it shut and place it at the bottom of a tank as an ornament? Looks like a cork... so not sure.

Oh my......

And how the heck would you clean something like that? I wouldn't want to attempt it. But it is very cool looking.

If only they came in larger sizes. After taking some time to look into mini heaters and filters, i have come to the conclusion that it just shouldn't be done. I did think about using it as a decoration in my tank at home but it's a really natural looking setup with only driftwood and rocks. Oh well, at least i thought it through instead of doing something on impulse.

This is what I was thinking also. Maybe a 5 or 10 gallon with sand or very fine natural gravel, some live plants, and the skull in the middle for decoration as a home for a nice betta. You might could even rig up a small LED under the skull to light it up - as long as it is very dim and doesn't freak out the betta.

I normally like just rock, plants, and wood, but if done right a little whimsy can work in betta tank I think.
