AquaKeramik Crayfish Pipe Clay Pipe Shrimp Pipe Ø 13 mm
Clay tube with a length of approx. 5-6 cm and an inner diameter of approx. 1.3 cm.
With these mini tubes for various dwarf crab species (CPOs) or young catfish, you can offer your animals an excellent hiding place and retreat.
The small clay tubes are quickly and easily accepted by the animals, which is a great way to support them, especially when they are young or moulting.
We use stoneware clay for the production of our clay articles, which can be fired to a high temperature and contains a varying proportion of fireclay depending on the product.
On the one hand, this makes our tubes very stable and durable. On the other hand, this means that the surfaces are never completely smooth, which provides an excellent basis for surface growth, which in turn is very readily grazed by catfish or shrimp.
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 clay tubes are handmade and shaped. Therefore, each one has different characteristics on the outside and inside. You will receive a unique specimen in each case.
