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.

    There are no live-bearing cichlids

    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 on

    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

    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!

    Fish love them!

    The small one was the size I was expecting, the other two were bigger than I thought they'd be. The fish love the ones I'm using so far. Would definitely recommend.

    My firemouth cichlids spawned,

    By on

    I’ve had these beautiful ceramic cave in my Cichlid tank since August 2018. It too about 4 months for any fish to hang out in one. The small ones are a bit too tiny for firemouth and convict cichlids. The medium and large ones became favorite caves for mine. If there was a “back door” I think the smaller ones would have been more popular. I gave the little caves to my bettas. This morning I woke up to a swarm of baby firemouth cichlids surging from the large cichlid stone, then corralled by the parents back into their cave. The eggs must have been in there and I didn’t know it. I am here to state that not only did these Cichlid Stones look great in the tank, they also are functional living I’ve had these beautiful ceramic cave in my Cichlid tank since August 2018.
