AquaKeramik clay pipe Ø 80-90 mm
clay tube approx. 25 cm long, Ø approx. 8-9 cm
This size provides an excellent hiding place for larger ornamental fish and invertebrates such as loaches or fan shrimps.
But also some large loricariid catfish and cichlids like to take this pipe size as a shelter.
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 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 pipes are handmade and shaped. Therefore, each one has different characteristics on the outside and inside. You will receive a unique specimen in each case.
