I've been using the same pots in my Freshwater tanks for awhile without problems, but are these same pots safe for a marine tank?

Sorry if this is a dumb question.

Thanks

Hello lanlesnee,

I'm not a salt tank keeper, but I do keep terracotta pots in my freshwater tanks. As long as the pots are not painted or glazed in any way I don't see what harm it could do. However, as I said I don't have salt tank experience so let's get more responses from Salt members before you decide to add them. I'm anxious to see the responses too! I don't know if the actual salt would break down the pots or not. hmmm??? good question!

Anytime you have concerns about your fish and tanks, it's never a dumb question!

Yes, They use them allot in FO Tanks say for Groupers, Triggers, Puffers etc...
They aren't the most attractive of deco but the fish seem to like them.

Clowns will some times spawn in them.
