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.

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?

How are the fish taking to them?
