    Some do other don't. It depends on the individual fish but a cave is usually the center of their territory and they spend time in it outside the breeding period. How much depend as earlier mentioned on the individual and the company.

    i see, well i have numerous un-used caves and pots which i wish to use, so i wanted to buy a fish that will use the pot and hang around it a bit and when startled hide in the shelter (not that i'd play monters and jump out from under the tank and scare the fish or anything)

    OK. So i will have to figure something out that isn't small enough to be considered food. pike cichlids that we talked about earlier might be a good options. They spent quite some times hiding in caves, especially while younger.
