/Escondites Betta – Handmade with polymer clay. Is it toxic?

I'm getting a betta, and probably 3 gallons Tetra Wonderland tank water. I know they need places to hide, and I wanted to make cool little caves and decorations for my betta tank. I usually use clay Polymer Sculpey III, but I need to know if it is toxic to them first. (I really hope not. I have some awesome ideas in my head for this mini castle ….) In any However, if toxic, does anyone know of a clay that could be used is not? Or maybe a varnish or sealer that could cover that is nontoxic? Seriously, I only have so much space on my desk. If this is a 5 gallon could fit well, so stop telling EM TO GET A 5 GALLON POR FAVOR.

I think it is based plastic, so it could seep into the water, which could be fatal to fish. It is always best to use decorations made specifically for aquarium use. There are many, including coconut shell caves, rocks, driftwood, and the man did as castles to choose from. I hope you will consider a larger aquarium your Betta. 3-gallon is not really enough room for a successful Betta move, or to keep the water parameters so decent. This is what you need to know for the Betta to live a long and happy life: 1. A 5-gallon cycle (http://www.firsttankguide.net/cycle.php and http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aquarium/cycling.php) tank is Betta minimal health. Tanks and smaller vessels do not maintain a constant temperature and is almost impossible to keep water sanitation. 2. A filter tanks is necessary in order to keep the water sparkling and free of toxins. For Bettas, it is better to set the low flow filter, and that swimmers are not very strong. Another good option is a sponge filter, 3. A heater is essential. Bettas need warm steady temperatures About 80F, to prosper. The constant fluctuation leads to tension, which inevitably leads to disease and often death. You can find a low-cost heater for a small tank at any fish store. 4. In a 5-gallon tank, water changes weekly 25%, using a gravel siphon needed. Water conditioner should be added to water before it is put in the tank to remove toxic chlorine, chloramine, metals, etc. 5. Bettas enjoy a well planted aquarium (direct use or silk plants, the plastic can tear their fins), with a cave or two to explore and unwind. 6. Feed your betta once a day with a good quality betta food (wet pellets first, that can cause problems swim bladder,) regularly replaced with frozen food and blood worms. Reserve one day a week for fasting. Bettas are known to live for 10 years. I have known personally to live in 6. Good luck with your new fishy!
