Description

Upgrade your aquarium swagger with the eco-friendly Underwater Galleries Assorted Cichlid Aquarium Stone Caves. These ceramic, hollow cave replicas don’t just look cool, they’re actually fish condos that provide a safe place to hide as well as plenty of privacy when it’s time to breed. Because they’re hand-glazed and individually-poured, each one is actually one of a kind! And since they’re hollow, they won’t displace you aquarium water so you can add as many as you like. Ideal for live-bearers like cichlids, mollies, platies and others, they’re made with non-toxic ceramic, with no resins, petroleum or lead, so they’re safe for all your fish and plants.

Instructions

These Cichlid stones are made of ceramic.They are durable and will remain unchanged for hundreds if not thousands of years. Some people love the algae to grow on them as it grows on everything in an aquarium. If you want to clean the algae off them you need only to take the stone or other ornament you need only to remove it from the aquarium and scrub it with come salt, rinse it off and return it. You do not need to wash the inside of the stones; any bacteria that is on the interior surface is good for the aquarium and should be left there. It helps with keeping the water healthy for the fish.

The stones can be stacked, piled, and turned any which way to create a lightweight rockscape which becomes an excellent habitat enhancement for fish. The complex environment of nooks, crevices and caves will reduce stress and promote harmony, and soon you will likely be seeing more interesting natural behaviors from your pets! A small distance between holes is suggested so that the fish that chose a stone for their home will not feel crowded with their neighbors.

    Good for babies

    By on

    This is my second time buying these. My Cichlids are aggressive, but keep having babies. These give the babies a great hiding spot. I have a fat blue African that I’ve had to buy sinking pellets for because he won’t come out. On the bright side, he stays in there and stopped rearranging the plants and gravel.

    Fish love it!

    Within 5 minutes of putting these in my tank the big one was claimed. I got the small one because I had bought adult ciclids and unexpectedly had babies.

    Good product but broke in shipping

    By on

    The caves are great for giving my plecos places to hide. However, one of the caves arrived broken. I was able to sand down the jagged edges and still use it. It really does need better packaging for shipping. Otherwise a great product!

    They Won't Use Them But I Like Them

    By on

    I bought these for my Cory catfish because they love hiding. So far they don't seem to have used them but they add a natural hiding place. (Right now their favorite hiding place is a skull.) I think the small size is too small but the medium is perfect.

    Nice Little Hideaway for Bristlenose Pleco

    By on

    These are a great little hideaway for my Bristlenose Pleco. The two sizes are great because my pleco is so tiny now that he uses the smaller cave but will be able to move into the larger one as he grows. The texture is nice and smooth for the pleco to rest on and they are weighted well so they sink straight to the bottom and don't move even when my giant goldfish knocks into them.

    Garbage do not buy

    By on

    This was shattered into 100 tiny pieces.....half the size I would expect to be called a cichlid rock. And not worth the time, effort, and money to return it. Just don’t buy it!

    good quality

    By on

    These are great. My bettas love them. They are ceramic, so they don't peel and imperil the fish. They are like a natural fish cave. Good value.
