i have the idea to cut the bottom off a liquor bottle and use it for fishy hidey spot...eys. i will smooth the edges. i was wondering what i could use to make sure there is no residue and what i can use to either take off all the glue from the labels or coat the labels so they wont come off. also what do you guys think about it.

you mean glass bottles?? if so do you have the tooling to do that?

What about a clay pot from Walmart. They are like 2 dollars. You wouldn't have to cut it. No glue and no residue....

yes i have the tools for it and i know it would be easier to just buy a pot, which i do need to do thanks for the reminder, but i think it would look kinda neat to have green glass bottle with fish swimming in and out

well as for the glue, you can use a razor blade and then some goo gone. after that clean it off really well with watered down bleach and It should be fine for your aquarium.

Rubbing alcohal mate will take off all labels and left over paper and after sanding down the glass you can put it in a minirel spirir to take off all residue from the glass DONT WANT THAT INTHE TANK EEKKK!!

Then wash it off and put in tank :thumb:

I wonder if you could coat the cut edges with aquarium sealant to make them as smooth as possible.

the sealant is quite an easy way to do it, safe for both u and the aquarium.

itd be even cooler if you just put the bottle in like it is and let them swim in and out of the part you drink from lol
