Ideas on Caves

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know any other ways to make cichlid caves besides pvc and flower pots? If you do could you please tell me!

I see many fish owners use rocks for caves, what do you use?

 

I bought a 3" elbow pvc pipe (about 8" long), with another 1" hole coming out of the outside bend. I then bought aquarium silicone and glued on small stones on the outside and parts of the inside. I will send pics on the before and after product later. (due to me buying regular silicone, completing the project then discovering it is toxic to the fish. dont worry I looked on the net before experimenting in the tank.) :lol:

 

Looking forward to seeing other caves.

im new here so bare with me. i have seen some neat ideas on caves and one of the neatest i have seen is severl pieces of slate of diffrent shapes and sizes glued together with sealer. to make a cave by gluing them you insure your self that none of your babies that like to rearange daily as mine do get hurt. takes some time and a little creativity but in the end it well pays off. :D

here is my tank where I made all the caves out of slate rock and driftwood rock (not actual driftwood) from a local rock quary here in San Diego.

 

I thought of going to the ocean and picking op some rocks for free, but my wife talked me out of it, so we paid for these. When I do it again I am going to the rock quary.
