You can try placing a few tanks in various parts of the tank and let your male decide. Once he's picked one out then the others can be removed.

I tend to have mine smack bang in the middle of the tank facing the front on a slight angle. then i put some wood over and near the entrance to that the male thinks its a bit hidden, but i can have a good look at what he is doing with a quick glance.

Me too..

Each one of my caves has a small piece of driftwood on top of it and slightly covering the entrance. I also find the females are more likely to enter the cave if they feel safe.. plus I also find that the females 'live' on the wood close to the cave Smile
