AquaKeramik crab pipe clay pipe Ø 30-35 mm
Clay pipe with a length of approx. 10-11 cm and an inner diameter of approx. 3-3.5 cm; slightly flattened, does not roll away.
With these tubes for different crayfish species you offer your animals an excellent hiding and retreat possibility. The crab pipes are quickly and unproblematically accepted by the animals, especially in the juvenile period as well as during moulting a great way to support the animals.
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 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, minimizing the risk of the eggs being flushed out of the cave.
The clay pipes are handmade and shaped. Therefore, each one has different characteristics outside as well as inside. In each case, you will receive a unique piece.
