Question Non PVC hideaways

When I was shopping for stuff for my tank I had a lot of trouble finding hideaways that were big enough. I know that some people use PVC pipe but I am not a big fan of the look (I know kinda silly) but I was hoping that someone might have some other ideas.
I was also wondering if the hollow log hides for reptiles would work.
Thanks

Default Re: Non PVC hideaways

Look for local pet store. Many of them will have nice logs with healthy algaes your ax will love that you can buy. My local "petco" which is a commercial outfit had some nice betta bowl plant seeds that the axxie has been eating the algaeic seed extrusions. It's like eating pure plant life force. A submerged log or sprouting seeds along with maybe a long philodendron branch and a daphnia culture your axxie will be super happy Happier than with a pvc tube cut in half.

Best,
Dr. T.
