thats because plecos need driftwood to gnaw on and im guessing this wasnt present.

Those are really neat looking. Maybe I'll do something like that when I get my QT tank. It seems like such a nice hiding place for fish :)

Unglazed terracotta pots make great cheap caves for a QT. Got mine for a buck a piece.

I have made PVC caves for plecos to rest in and found that if you sand the PVC with some coarse sandpaper to rough it up a little the silicone and rock sticks a little better. For attaching Java fern an Orchid pot found at some garden centers or nurserys works very well. They are already drilled with holes.

That was a sweet idea.... I just set up a 29g for my Convict Cichlids and made some of those for them. I'll post some pics.
Thanks for the killer idea.
When I set up my 110g bow front I want to make a big inter connected maze of tunnels and build my rock up around that.

These are all excellent ideas. The flower pot w/ moss is something I'm going to attempt tomorrow!
