- - Glass Cave

I am oddly enough having trouble finding a clay pot for my cave. I have a nice blue glass though, that I was thinking about putting in the tank. There are no images, it's just glass. What do I need to do to the glass to make it aquarium safe?

My guess (and its just a guess) would be to rinse it in a very light bleach - no soap, and then thoroughly rinse in warm-hot water to get rid of all the bleach. I don't think you would want to boil it (unless its pyrex)!

Thanks, it looks really good in there! It's just blue enough that it's not completely see through, and my bichir is starting to claim it. It's cool because it is a hiding spot for the fish, yet I can still see them easily without having to search for them. :D

Then post a pic!

Hey I didn't even think about this, that new pot I boiled and cleaned to make it aquarium safe; it has a paint on the outside, but I think it is safe. It's that real smooth glossy paint on the clay pot, I've seen it in many tanks before. Thoughts?

I like the glass better :wink: The "paint" on the clay pot is fired so I think it's ok (shouldn't leech into the water).

I like the glass better too :lol:

I also like the glass better. You could also make a cave by leaning one of your pieces of rock onto the other.
