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.

Key Benefits

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.

    Small openings

    By Kylie on Jun 28, 2021

    The openings to these are a lot smaller than expected; it did not take long for our fish to outgrow them. They’re also very light and are moved around easily by our big ol sucker fish. They do look neat as decorations, though I wish our fish could have used them longer.

    Smaller than expected

    By Jason on Jun 26, 2021

    The caves are a lot smaller than I expected. Luckily I have some juvenile dempseys and convicts for 2 of them. And I have some Dempsey fry for the smallest one.

    Nice Decor

    By LizC on May 26, 2021

    I got these for my Rams, they are not using them much but they do look good in the tank and the loaches and catfish seem to like them.

    Perfect fit for my tank

    By Mieke on Dec 25, 2020

    The stones brought my tank to life. I have a 3 dimensional rock background and the stones are just what my tank needed to tie it all together

    There are no live-bearing cichlids

    By Henry on Oct 8, 2020

    Please correct your description for these rocks. While I am considering them, I did notice that you incorrectly say that they are "Great for a variety of live-bearing tropical fish like African and South American cichlids, guppies, mollies, platies, swordtails, Endler's livebearer, and others." This is incorrect. There are no live-bearing cichlids.

    Love these!

    By Lisa on Aug 31, 2020

    They fit perfectly in my planted aquarium. I don't know if they look 100% natural, but I like these ceramic ones much more than the resin type decorations.

    Exactly what I was expecting

    By Stephanie on Feb 9, 2020

    These hideaways look natural under water! The inner edges were a little sharp in spots, but a nail file softened them down (probably being an over protective fish mom). Overall, great quality for the price!

    Aquarium rocks

    By Terri on Mar 2, 2020

    These are fine but for some reason I dont see my Cichlids using them! No fault of the product though.
