Crevice cave for L catfish such as L168, L34, L82
A cave form copied from nature – like a narrow crevice, with an opening at the back for a flow through and as an escape route.
For almost all catfish. This size is suitable for e.g. L46.
Some species such as L168, L82 and L34 prefer fissures to other cave types.

The pocket-like shape is modelled by hand, so that no crevice cave is shaped exactly like another. The differences in height within the cave are deliberately designed so that the catfish can choose the spot that suits them best.
For almost all L catfish that still fit into a cave of approx. 20 cm. We will be happy to make larger or longer versions for you as required.
Some species like L168, L082 and Ancistrus ranunculus L034 prefer crevice caves to other types of caves.
Size approx. 11 x 20 x 1.5-3 cm (depth x length x height)
with opening at the back (right or left depending on stock)
