AquaKeramik Igloo cave made of clay for axolotl cave 18 cm Ø with archway
Ideal hiding place for axolotls
This hemispherical cave is ideally suited as a hiding place for axolotls, crayfish, catfish and other ornamental fish.
Used as an axolotl cave, there is room for about 2-3 average-sized animals.
The diameter of the shelter is approx. 18 cm. The igloo is about 10 cm high and has a wide entrance designed like an archway.
The low ceiling height accommodates the animals’ need for safety. The shape of the hiding place was adapted to the special needs of the caudate amphibians in cooperation with breeders and keepers.
Our shelter for axolotls is practical and decorative at the same time. Combined with our tunnels or igloos in other sizes, you can create a varied cave landscape in your axolotl aquarium.
To give this shelter some naturalness, the surfaces of the single-coloured tunnels are hand-decorated.
Our multi-coloured versions do not receive any additional decoration so as not to disturb the colour pattern.
All igloos are individually handcrafted. After a few days of air drying, they are finished by hand to remove any corners or edges that may be present.
With all the hiding places we offer for axolotls, we attach great importance to injury-free surfaces and entrances. As a rule, no finishing work is necessary by you.
At 1090 °C, the axolotl caves become very hard and long-lasting hiding places. They can easily be boiled for disinfection purposes or placed in the oven at high heat.
As all igloos are made by hand, deviations in colouring and dimensions may occur.
Please note: Notes on the colours
If you do not want any surface patterns on your caves, simply indicate this in the comments field when you place your order. The delivery time is then up to 9 working days, the caves will then be made especially for you without a sample.
