Corals/Plants: <p>Substrate & Rock:<br /> Texas Holy Rock, Tufa Rock, Lava Rock, Crushed Coral, Large Rock Gravel, and Pseudo Plants.</p> <p> Strategically placed rock that creates cavernous caves and hidden travel corridors. I used Texas Holy rock & Tufa rocks that were placed on layer of large chunks of gravel, then covered with crushed coral. Cichlids love to dig, however the larger gravel supports and prevent an eager cichlid from playing contractor. </p>
