Does anyone have recommendations for hanging in a lizard tank? I don't want to tear my screen cover. Purchased the coconut and the moss hides for the Beardie babies' tank. Love them both by the way! Babies do too! Just need any ideas for getting them up higher.

It is advised to install tension rod in the tank and then hang cave ornament on the tension rod.

Happy home for Rocky and his Shrimp pals

I already possessed one of those ceramic "submerged logs" for Rocky, as well as a leaf-mounted betta hammock. I assure you, he's not too pampered. However, I was in search of something more spacious and resilient, not only for Rocky but also for the three ghost shrimp I intended to introduce to the tank. They also need secure hiding spots, particularly considering Rocky's insatiable appetite. The ghost shrimp frequently take refuge in and around this new addition, while Rocky goes in and out of the little shelter quite regularly. As per the instructions, I first boiled it and allowed it to air dry. Moreover, this particular item came with a naturally occurring hole at the top, which had the potential to trap Rocky. Therefore, I securely sealed the opening with a small stone, which was also boiled for hygiene purposes. For betta fish guardians, ensuring a comfortable dwelling is imperative, and when housing tankmates like shrimp, it's a no-brainer to provide suitable hiding spaces. This product has unequivocally fulfilled our needs. Rocky and I couldn't be more delighted

Cichlid fry protection

In a mixed-species aquarium setting, such as one housing cichlids, the problem of protecting baby cichlids is multifaceted. Cichlid parents are known for their territorial and sometimes aggressive behavior, especially during breeding and the early stages of fry development. The adults can view their own offspring as potential intruders or competitors for limited resources, leading to aggression, harassment, or even predation. This is where the half coconut shell, serving as a secure refuge, plays a vital role. Baby cichlids are naturally drawn to hiding places and shelter, and the coconut shell provides them with an ideal sanctuary. It allows the young cichlids to escape the aggressive tendencies of their parents or other tankmates, thereby increasing their chances of survival. Additionally, the coconut shell, apart from its functional benefits, also contributes to the overall aesthetics of the tank. Its natural appearance and texture not only serve a practical purpose but also enhance the visual appeal of the aquarium, creating a more engaging and harmonious underwater environment. This dual-purpose solution effectively addresses the problem of protecting baby cichlids while elevating the tank's beauty and functionality.

Not great

I purchased this for my fish aquarium however it wouldn't stay down it kept floating to the top. If I buried it in the stone anymore it wouldn't serve as a hiding place because it would be full of stone. Would probably serve better for a turtle, hermit crab, small snake or lizard
