Is there any reason I can't keep two deli containers containing one sling each in an aquarium? I have 4 cats, and the aquarium will be on a shelf without enough room for a cat to fit, but if I just had to two little containers, there'll be lots of room for cats.

As long as you have lids on those containers then no, it would be just fine. I stack some of my slings in deli containers in a big tank just to keep them orginized.

you might also want to fashion a screen lid of somesorts. Just to ensure that the cats can look but not touch.

I'd put a lid over the aquarium as well since cats sometimes like to crawl into tight spaces to nap. You probably want to make the lid strong enough to support the cat.:D

Oh no problem, I'll have lids on the deli containers and the aquarium. I just wanted to get the opinions of some people in case there was some weird reason not to do this.

Thanks!

I have been keeping the ones in cups in an aquarium for a few different reasons and have never had a problem.
