they are terracotta caves i make and sell for breeding julies, chalinochromis, any other long slender cichlids. i find making use of empty space by stacking vertical caves brings down the aggression in my fish, especially julidochromis. they are so mean to each other!! especially trying to raise 6 in a 20 long until they pair off. if youre interested in some just message me they're $4 each or 4 for $12. and yeah danny t i think youre safe

Nice fish,and set up.
Am particularly impressed with near perfect round holes in the pot's.
My own effort's with making holes such as those pictured ,,were less than pleasing.

had to buy $23 bits for every hole size it takes a while to drill and is very messy because i have to drill the pots while theyre submerged so the bit doesnt wear out

Awww, so cute! I think they all look very nice, and your fish show great colors, so they must be happy.

Thanks since this post both the buescheri and julies have spawned many times! Ive also made many upgrades to the tanks since lots and lots of plants in every tank!
