ehh created the topic: wanting to add something new to the rd tank

not another fish but something else decoration wise.

i dont know if he benefit from one thing more than another.

my first option is a pvc short or street elbow. but i think he is too big to fit through a 4inch diameter and the 6 inch diameter pvc is freaking huge haha. i wanted to cover the pvc in silicone then roll in the gravel i have in the tank and stick a fake plant or a small piece of mopani wood to make it really blend it.

that or a clay pot to give him a cave. also covered in gravel.

the thing im concerned about with both items is their size. the 6 inch pvc is huge. and the clay pot is also huge lol. I still want him to have lots of swimming space.

the mopani that is in there i intend to keep in there. any suggestions?

heres a picture for reference.

You can use clay plates to form a cave or cut a clay pot in half to get a rounder opening.

A tall fake plant in the middle that nearly reaches the top. It will give something for him to hide behind.

i do agree, adding some background plants for your RD to hid and it'll throw in some color contrast to your setup

Can't do fake planets unless I glue them to something. He never likes where I put them lol.

My guy loves his cave, just some rocks from outside, boiled to sanitize. He wont have any plants, tied down or not, he just pulls them apart anyways.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

im gonna go back to lowes and get a second look at the 6inch pvc elbow. ill prolly just end up gluing a tall plant to that. any time i set up the mopani in there in cave like fashion he spends a lot of time in it, which is why i wanted to give him a cave.

I like ur tank as it is! Main focus is the beautiful fish! ... but if you really want something I think a fake plant for cover is the way to go! Looking forward to pics when done..
