I added a couple of caves to my 90gal, what do you think (sorry so blurry - camera phone):

I am planning on adding 4 danios this weekend (currently in QT) and then 4-5 rams in a week or two, so the caves are to give them a hiding place until they get settled in...the rams could also potentially spawn in them although I think they prefer to spawn in open water. the caves are pretty small, maybe 1.5-2" high and 4" wide/deep. I may have to redo them if they are not large enough. we will see.

Rams will not spawn in caves.:) Try red rocks and slates. They are open water brooders. Your apistos probably will spawn inside them.

Looks great!

Are you concerned about waste accumulating in there? Or are you just going to excavate them occasionally for cleaning? I'm asking because I've never had caves that are buried in the substrate like that, only ones that rest on top.
