AquaKeramik catfish cave made of clay Ø 30-35 mm length 10 cm front entrance bulbous shape
This small special cave with front entrance, closed on one side, is approx. 10 cm long. The entrance diameter is approx. 3 cm, the inner diameter in the middle approx. 3.5 cm (bulbous shape).
Front entrance caves of this type are used, for example, for breeding L catfish such as L046, L144, L173, L174 or LDA67.
This model is especially suitable for L046. As the zebra catfish is very choosy, several caves with different diameters should always be offered. Breeders therefore like to combine this s model with our other front entrance caves of diameters 20-35 mm FE1, FES1 and FES2.
We use stoneware clay for the production of our clay articles, which can be high-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 features on the outside and inside. You will receive a unique specimen in each case.
