Handmade Natural Black Alder Wood Tube

Natural tubes made of 100% black alder in various sizes and designs handmade.
Ideal for many fish seeking protection, especially but not only for many Loricariids (L-catfish), especially those species that absolutely need (soft)wood as a side dish, e.g. the Panaque species.
The caves serve as a hiding place and at the same time as food addition.

Tip: Please soak for 1 - 2 days before use until the caves sink.
Dimensions and weight may vary. These are natural products, each of which is a unique piece.

Leider nicht so einfach

Ich habe mehrere Höhlen eine Woche gewässert,nachdem sie immer noch aufschwammen,eine Woche mit Steinen beschwert sodass sie untergetaucht waren.Auch jetzt,nach über 14 Tagen,schwimmen sie immer noch an der Wasseroberfläche.Die Welse würden sich freuen wenn sie leichter rankämen.Fazit:gute Idee,aber es dauert wesentlich länger bis sie umzusetzen ist.

Our feedback: Das ist das natürliche Verhalten von trockenem Holz. Das kann auch von uns als Anbieter nicht so ohne weiteres umgangen werden. Evtl. würde kochendes Wasser den Vorgang beschleunigen. Es wäre zumindest einen Versuch wert.
