Triangular Catfish Cave

Small: 2cm x 10cm

Medium: 2.5cm x 12cm

Triangular-shaped spawning caves for L-catfish. These clay front entrance cavities are triangular in the basic shape and round and flattened at the bottom in the basic shape.
As a result, they lie securely on smooth surfaces without rolling away and can be stacked in a variety of ways.

All our clay products are handmade, not cast. The diameter is always the same for each cave size, only the shape can differ slightly.

Due to the manual production, there may be slight variations in width/height/length even within the individual sizes, which many catfish fans welcome, as the fish also have different preferences.

Another important point for the breeding of L-catfish is the nature of the cave surfaces.

We use stoneware clay for the production of our pottery, which can be fired to a high temperature and contains a varying proportion of fireclay depending on the product. As a result, the surface of our spawning cavities is always slightly rough and never as smooth as with cast goods.

This advantage may already be known to some catfish breeders: If the surface of the interior is too smooth, the spawning balls have no grip and are all too easily flushed out of the cave.

However, if the surface is at least slightly rough, as is almost always the case with hand-modelled caves made of stoneware mass, the clutch can adhere better to the cave wall and the risk of flushing out is reduced.

In addition, this provides an excellent basis for surface vegetation, which is very much grazed by the catfish.
