Default Aquarium as playpen?

I have a good setup for Jefferey's home, but i have no playpen for him, i was wondering if it would be ok for him to play in my giant 60gal (long) aquarium filled with fun things. I know the circulation isnt the greatest, but there wouldn't rly be any sorts of excrement or anything in there to cause him to become asphyxiated. I cleaned it with simple green and thoroughly rinsed so it is contaminant free. He also wouldnt be in there for more then a couple hours + he would be entirely supervised/with me when he gets tired of running around.

As a playpen only, I think a 60gal is perfectly fine. It is far more open that smaller tanks and I'm sure he'd appreciate the room to run around without worry of escape.

Ok great, just wondering: in your cage setup, is that a dryer vent tube?

Yep, it's the standard 4" vinyl dryer tubing. If you get some for whatever reason, make sure you air it out for a few days because it smells pretty strong new.
