Terra Cotta Flower Pots

Are clean and unglazed terra cotta flower pots safe to use in an aquarium?

Yep. I just rinse mine in warm water first to get dirt and stuff off of them first and throw them into the tank. Never had a problem.

Plenty of members have used them ... and a there was a recent thread about the same issue. As long as it's not treated with any coating ... your fine.

These appear to be bare clay, so they should be fine?

Yes. IMO I have a terra cotta pot in my betta tank and he loves it.
