    I wouldn't mess with those ceramic caves. YOu surely have some rocks around somewhere that would look more natural (your tank has such a natural beautiful look going). Or buy some pieces of slate from you LFS or even home depot or someplace like that to make a natural looking cave.
    Just my opinion :o)

    I agree - ceramic anything would detract from the natural look of your tank. If you can't find any at your LFS, try landscape companies or stone/gravel supply. Take a little bottle of vinegar with you so you can test the rocks/slate (the vinegar should not bubble).

    You would use aquarium sealant, available at your LFS or Petsmart.

    you can use aquarium safe silicone glue. Most LFS will have it. Or plain clear jell calk like they use around bathtubs etc.. Or you can just stack carefully, make sure they are secure and do it that way. Seriously, mine is just one flat rock leaning on another rock but it's very solid as I don't want it falling on the pleco :o) She can go in or out either side but she thinks no one can see her :o) There's only about 1 1/2 inches clearance at the high side from the substrate so it's nice and snug just the way she likes it. They seem to like nice tight places. And this way, I get to see her all the time. That's why I know she falls asleep and ends up flat on her back on the substrate completely unhooked.
    Here's a photo I caught of her after falling off the driftwood sound asleep. It's a bad photo but it;s all I've got.

    That is way, way too funny! I can see how you would have panicked seeing her like that.

    I can see why you thought she was dead!! I'm paranoid about it falling so I will probably glue the rocks together.

    Even though it's driftwood in the photo, I wanted to show you how they hang upside down. So don't make your cave ceiling too high just in case she or he falls :o)
