AquaKeramik Catfish Cave made of clay Ø approx. 80-90 mm front entrance
This clay cave is closed on one side with a length of approx. 25 cm and a diameter of approx. 8-9 cm.
Front entrance caves of this size are suitable for breeding larger L-catfish species such as L014, L018, L027, L037, L082, L116 or L330.
But this large cave can not only be used as a catfish cave. Large clown loaches, cichlids or other ornamental fish also like to use it as a resting place.
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.
The catfish caves are handmade and shaped. Therefore, each one has different characteristics on the outside and inside. You will receive a unique specimen in each case.
