AquaKeramik spawning tube Ø 50 mm
clay tube approx. 20 cm long, Ø approx. 5 cm
With these tubes you offer an excellent hiding place for some animals of the genera Rineloricaria and Hemiloricaria, the so-called ‘witch catfish’. Of the small species these are also used as spawning caves. This size also offers some ornamental fish and invertebrates such as loach or fan shrimp an excellent hiding and resting place. But also some loricariids and cichlids like to take this tube size.
These tubes are also used in the breeding of loricariid catfish. They offer the offspring an opportunity to hide. If the right diameter is chosen, these tubes prevent a lot of stress in the tank, because the young animals hide there from their larger colleagues, because they cannot get in because of their size.
This type of ornamental fish caves are handmade, so each one has different characteristics such as the inner diameter. Each tube is unique.
Also, plants such as Anubias nana can be very well attached to all catfish tubes, which further enhance the natural effect.
