AquaKeramik Catfish Cave Crayfish cave made of clay Ø 30-35 mm length approx. 10-11 cm front entrance
This clay cave, closed on one side, has a length of approx. 10-11 cm and an inner diameter of approx. 3-3.5 cm.
With these clay caves for different crayfish species you offer your animals an excellent hiding and retreat possibility, especially in the juvenile period as well as during moulting.
In addition to crayfish, this clay cave can of course also be used for breeding various L catfish. For example, it would be suitable for L46, L144, L173, L174, LDA67.
All clay caves are handmade, therefore each piece has different characteristics like the inner diameter or the entrance diameter.
We use stoneware clay for the production of our clay articles, which can be highly fired and contains a varying proportion of fireclay depending on the product.
On the one hand, this makes our caves very stable and durable. On the other hand, the surfaces are never completely smooth, which provides an excellent basis for surface growth, which in turn is very readily grazed by the catfish.
This slightly rough surface of the cave also benefits the adhesive properties of most fish eggs without damaging the eggs. The eggs adhere better to the cave wall, minimising the risk of the eggs being flushed out of the cave.
Our caves are handmade and shaped. Therefore, each one has different features on the outside and inside. You will receive a unique specimen in each case.
