Had this idea for a while (New to the group and to the site as of today)

    Hello all,
    I have had this idea for a while now regarding an undergavel cave system for small cichlids. When I was in high school I had done my senior project on creating artificial caves constructed out of pvc pipes that ended up looking something like this link . What I have experimented with is cutting pipes in half and joining different types together to create a cave system that you can put under the gravel at the very front of the tank. Different elbow joints angled out of the gravel created access points for fish to get inside of the caves. My initial design was placed in a 10 gallon tank with African Clawed Frogs. They could go under the gravel inside the "Cave" and feel secure, and I could still see them. My next dream/goal is to create a complete cave system that spans the entire tank floor under the gravel that still has observation spots, either at the front of the tank or on the sides.
