1.5" (inside) "D" Cave  $5.95 
2.25" (inside) "D" Cave  $9.75


The "D" caves are good in bare-bottom tanks, since they do not roll. The average sized male bristlenose pleco will prefer the 1.25" and 1.5" openings. They like a tight fit. Large, older males and bigger species will prefer the larger 2.25" openings.


Split Caves

1.5" (inside) Split Cave  $7.50
2.25" (inside) Split Cave  $10.25


The average sized male bristlenose pleco will prefer the  1.25" and 1.5" openings. They like a tight fit. Extra large old males and bigger species will prefer the larger 2.25" openings. The "Split" caves allow you to easily remove egg clutches and hatch them artificially. If you have other fish in the tank besides plecos, they will eat the pleco fry when they emerge from the cave. Therefore, raising them artificially is about the only other option.

Large Breeding Hut 

Enter Qty in each box
Large Breeding Hut  $7.75


This Large Breeding Hut measures 4.75" in diameter and is 3" high. You can conveniently stack the smaller huts on top of this large hut. Although bristlenose will breed in this, it makes a great community cave where several can hang out.  If you want the oblong hole to be higher, just flip it upside down. It works both ways.

Thanks for carrying the split caves. The are really handy when breeding in a community tank.

My plecos love these cones. I didn't realize how much they need one until I put some in my tanks.

I put one of these in my pleco tank and the male was guarding eggs in it 2 days later. He instantly preferred this over the other spawning sites he had in the tank. These really work.
