    For some Eels and Some Fish homes with numerous entrances are a must
    With this DIY ill tell you how t make an undergavel hideaway which has numerous exits and entrys

    You will need
    *a small Storeage container to fit your requirments
    *pipe wide enough for your fish to get in and out of
    *Aquarium Friendly Silicone
    *Decorative plants, Rocks, Gravel ETC
    *Cutting materials (hacksaw)

    Step 1
    Cut the several holes in the storage containers bottom that will just fit around the pipe you have

    Step 2
    Cut the pipe into sections about 4 icnhes long

    Step 3
    Put the pipe in the hole and lay silicone on both the inside and the outside of the bottom of the caint securly around the pipe where it fits in the hole (allow atleast 2 1/2 inches to poke out the bottom)

    Step 4
    Ok, Now you should have a storage container upside down with seeral pipes sticking out the bottom, now u can decorate the pipe with the plants, rocks ETC by sticking them on with Aquarium Friendly Silicone

    Step 5
    Leaving the storage conatiner lid on put a thin layer of gravel through the pipes so that on the inside of the lid there is gravel

    Step 6
    Now bury the storage container so that only a small amount of pipe is sticking out of the gravel but the storage conatiner is fully submerged

    This will allow the Fisht o feel safe at home

    We have a ropefish and one day one of the caps somehow came off of the undergravel filter for places where we do not have tubes. we noticed that the ropefish was missing and later saw him come out of the hole, so just put a decorative cave over the opened hole in the undergravel filter and left it open. The ropefish loves it, and none of the other fish are narrow enough to get in it. Perfect for him

    yeah thats where i got the idea from only once i left my fish alone and let him go in and out freely (he was a ghost) but he ended up getting sick from the build up under the filter and died :(
