Alright, Im gonna make me some hiding spot/caves for my fish out of some sweet rocks that I was given. Now my ? is, Do fish care if I were to make a nice cave and the back side of it was against the glass or do I need to make it a solid cave so they can totally hide in it. Just don't know what they really like and would like some help before I start building! The fish that will one day be in my tank.....Danoios, Tetras, Rams, Gouramis, and poss rainobow a two. Thanks!

the tetras won't use the caves nor will the gourami,if the caves are to be at the back of the aquarium,like on the back glass then i wouldn't worry
about putting a back on the cave,if it's to be in the open then yeah
pop a back on it.
happy building. :)

Willow Thanks again for the help!

Now a second thought, What about if I put it in a corner, would they deal ok with that?! It would be on the back and one side that doesn't have much activity on it

don't see why not,if you ever wanted to give a little more security
at a later time and don't want to disturb the cave,plop a plant
next to it,that's what i do from time to time.
