Those are really nice caves for them. I've looked for the lava rocks from local LFS but seems like most of them only have like small lava rocks. I read and understand its best to avoid leaning the lava rocks on the glass wall to avoid putting too much pressure and causing leakage from @odin post, therefore smaller lava rocks might not work i suppose? I'll probably take a look at those "ceramic caves", might have better luck on them.

i ordered too much for my mini tank as they required a min order, i ordered anyway so am thinking to sell off these balance rocks. they are all natural calcium carbonate rock which buffer the water and is good for shrimps, highly porous so more beneficial bacteria can grow on it. pls pm me if u want them. thank u
