well in order to tell you if the log is any good we need to see it...

In terms of where to get a cave. There were a few people around who made them but I had a quick look around and cant find any of their details. A lot of the better/larger fish shops will stock clay breeding caves. If you cant find any let me know and i will send some up.

could possibly put the two together and then seal them with silcone, then drill a hole of appropriate size in the top if no other option is available..

did not see the size on post Sad now i do...lol...

i would go for something a little bigger.. or half a coconut shell if available....
