i just made these new caves from some flat rock and aquarium safe silicone, im quite impressed with myself, what do you guys think?
the silicone just needs to set and it will clear up then ill just trim off the dags, clean and soak them and voila nice caves :P

That looks awesome!! Well done!

I really think it's so much more satisfying making your own than going into a shop and buying them.

Just one word of warning... I'm assuming it's quite heavy? When placing it in the tank, keep a good grip around the bottom... just in case.

it was very satisfying making my own, i could make it to the shape I wanted... :P plus it only cost me 1/30th of what a pet shop would charge

i wonder if i could build a flat wall out of these rocks so i can use it as a waterfall for a half and half tank for frogs?

would it cause problems with all that weight on one side of the tank?

I Like the top one..... But not the bottom one.... it looks different :wink:


Hahahaha - those lounges in the background are disgusting!

saint 04-11-2007 08:47 AM

yeah thank god those lounges are gone.... looks like a dog has been sleeping on them :shock:

i just dropped the caves into the tank today, looks soooo much better

Do you have any pictures of them inside the tank?

Just-Cause 04-11-2007 03:37 PM

Did you test them in the Bucket thingy first?

How are the fish taking to them?


When can I put an order in?

saint 04-12-2007 06:17 AM

i will be taking pics of all my tanks soon, as soon as i get off my arse and charge my camera.. it went flat just b4 we got our mate a fatagram for his farewell........

mr just cause.. i did test it for a lil while and all was good
you can put an order in but it will cost you the equipment and labour... so 20 bucks for labour and whatever the other bits and pieces are :wink:

saint 04-12-2007 06:18 AM

oh and the africans are really interested by it, within 15 mins of it being in there everysingle fish in the tank wanted to go and inspect it... lol im just waiting for one of them to "claim" it
