    Yes, the only problem I have is finding 'small' caves, all the ornaments at my nearest fish shop are quite large and I have a lot of plants in my tank, so I think I may have to look further afield.

    I have the Apisto Cave for my Panduros... The female loved it.

    Here are some coconut caves: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trks...at=0&_from=R40

    I can't remember where I bought my coconut shells, but I had to drill mine myself, and I just used one of those circular saw drill bits.

    You can buy coconut shells in the grocery store. Fruit counter. Just need cleaning.

    However you do not need to buy caves. two small slates of rock placed against eachother at an angel will do.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    And the terra cotta pots I got at a craft store like Michaels - about $1 for the small ones

    I thought that coconut shells were not recommended because they rot?

    I've not heard that. Are you sure you're not talking about the actual meat of the coconut?

    I thought the husks can last for some time. Just empty them and boil them possibly to see how they hold up.

    Even if they fall apart you could always mix it with some rum for a few pina coladas

    A well peeled husk will last for a few years before they rot. It is most a problem in most aquariums.
