I just found a local manufacturer of BN breeding logs. He makes a few different types. So my question is what would you chose to use, or what do you use,, or what have you had the most success with. They are as follows, Breeders Logs, Oval Logs, D Logs, Rectangel Logs, Rocks, Caves, Calvus Wedges. Cheers Hus

I give my Bn a few choices... he always goes for the 5cm pvc pipe. It's about 15cm long and blocked at 1 end with a scuffed inside, it lays half buried in the gravel, I wish he would go for the hole I drilled in my bogwood(which took me 1/2 hr to drill out) Sad

yeah, give them a few choices, find out what they like. at the end of the day however, i dont think it really matters. what it is, its the size that matters. The entrance should be about 2.5-3cms high and 5cms wide. that seems to be the best size for the commons.

Yea I have that as well but i personally dont like it as it doesn't look nice it also has an end cap on it. I'm thinking if it's possibly to paint it so it not an eyesore. If so what sought of paint and maybe trying to grow some plant on it will anything thake to it.

When i made my terracotta pot cave, I used extra silicone & some spare stones from my substrate & covered it up. It is now nicely cammo'd and the only way you really tell it is there is the orange circle entrance which the stones refused to stick too LOL

I've got two normal logs and another two that my nephew is sending up from sydney for me later on today, the ones he is sending up are smaller logs than the ones I have at the moment, which none of my BN'S are interested in. I'm going to get some PVC Piping later on down the track.

Couldn't you stick some sand to the orange circle entrance.
