Are there any females in with the males Question

The fighting for the cave could prevent them from using it for it's purpose.

You could get a couple pieces of bog wood and drill caves into them or buy something that is very similar maybe?

I have found if a cave is higher than the rest they do tend to favour it so either lowering it to the same level as the others or getting more elevated caves will help.Another thing I have observed is that they like caves that are at an upward angle so that is why they both want that cave because it is high and at an upward angle.Try to keep all caves the same if you have more than 1 male.

What is wrong with your female?

If the cave is at an upward angle is there a danger of detrius building up at the bottom in a cave that is sealed Question

No,I have never had a problem as the males do not allow anything into the cave.They fan it out immediately if anything does happen to go in even a tiny piece of flake or anything at all and my caves are only at a slight angle.
