Someone else making coconut shelters
Just thought you guys would get a kick out of this article, considering the growing popularity of coconut half caves!

Welcome to the Fabulous AC!
We have been using these caves around here for a while now.None with an octopus!lol
That is a cool video.I was watching it this morning.Apparently they are quite smart.
If you want cocnut caves in your tank they are easy to make but it does take several hours of boiling and water changes to get all the tannins out.They are great little caves though.

I would use these for any pleco breeding or any other fish that breed in caves. I have them in a few of my tanks!

Thanks for the welcome. I've been lurking around, perusing the various threads for awhile, getting ideas for my new 55 gallon. The coconut caves were tempting, but I got a screaming deal on some rock slabs at the local rock shop. Combined those with some normally shaped rocks to make a lot of great hiding places for fish! Now the tough part... making a decision on fish.

And make sure you use the right drill bit. I had to make do with a wood bit....coconut got snagged and almost broke my finger. Aside from that and the 5 hours of boiling they are great.Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?
