Cichlid Stones

Has anyone heard of/ used this product? They're ceramic "rocks" with caves cut into them. Apparently they stack really welll and cichlids love them. I'm considering some for my 135gal. I'm not going to keep cichlids, but I will be keeping eels and other fish that like to hide.

I would just go to your home depot in the gardening section and get slate, much cheaper.

Can you just use clay pots? I have seen what appeared to be garden variety clay pots in fish pictures and Heaven knows they would be a lot cheaper then some of the decorative caves from LFS.

I'm working toward a very natural theme. I don't want to use slate or pots.

Well no offense, but those stones are fake.

Their ceramic logs look real, but in their photos the cichlid stones and the sea caves look pretty fake. I had some slate in my planted 55g... I liked it a lot. Slate can look very natural depending on how its placed.

ETA: the 2 tanks you have now look very nice and natural. They just need more plant growth IMO.

I've bought these stones for about $1 (US) per kg. Obviously it was in south africa (our currency $1 = R7). They look much more natural.
And I have only seen then once in a LFS aroung here. And thats when i bought all of them.
My Frontosa's just love them
