Olibetta Catfish Cave XL - One Side Closed
The rear closed XL catfish cave made of real wood has an outer diameter of 10-13 cm and a length of 12-16 cm. The cave, with a diameter of 4 cm, is a good size for Bushymouth catfish, or other catfish that grow to be a similar size, or for corresponding gobies and smaller cichlids that breed in caves. Also for smaller crayfish, the cave is well suited.
The cave is closed at the back and is the ideal spawning ground for cave breeders. Here, no egg thief can sneak up unexpectedly - this reduces the stress enormously for the brooding fish.
The catfish cave is made of a real, natural piece of wood. Due to the visually unobtrusive dark colour, the detailed cave nestles inconspicuously in the aquarium layout. It is a great piece of aquarium decoration with practical use and with very nice detail that makes the aquarium more natural.
Our expert Oliver Knott recommends:
A moss-covered tree trunk looks quite original - almost directly from the biotope into the aquarium! The root cavity is simply planted with moss or fern - or even better with a combination of both plant species. The easiest way to do this is with the quick-release gel ProHaru Rapid from JBL or with a nylon thread.
