If you are planning on building some artificial fish habitat of any type with wet cement, you need this multi purpose pack that will add unlimited textures and flat pvc to your plans to help grow more fish.
Hundreds of pieces from 1/4" to 5" wide that average 35" long, can be divided into many individual habitat uses. Pieces can be used alone or with other artificial or natural materials set into cement. The mixture of many different materials, sizes, types, flexibilties and densities, all provide truly naturally abstract, artificial habitat. The protection fish and invertabrates need to flourish can be created in countless different ways. Combine this shallow pack with our taller Project pack and aquatic life thrives both within and above without breaking down.
Our patented flat pvc materials are exclusive to Fishiding habitat products and provide the ultimate in diverse underwater protection. Large, wide surfaces excell in periphyton growth and cast unmatched shade. Flexible pvc can be shaped by hand or tossed in without any bending, a few days after cement sets.
Weighs 32 pounds
Spider Blocks, buckets or our included containers come to life with a mixture of these three different types of clean, snagless, un-used pvc. Pour the pieces right into your wet cement and when dry they can be bent with your fingers or left to sway in the open water column. Pinch the material with your fingers to create a crease to create wild, snag free cover.
Fry and forage species need tight spaces to hide and grow. Fathead minnows need the flat underside of objects to lay their eggs on and this material provides just that.
With the thirty pounds of material this box includes, we made twelve separate shallow habitat units, totaling over 300 square feet of usable surface area/25 square feet and 2.5 pounds of pvc per unit average. Our twelve units covered an area over thirty feet long and ten feet wide. Each finished unit weighed about 9 pounds.
This Multi purpose habitat box will triple the important surface area of a dozen Spider Blocks, or make separate cribs for pennies per square foot. Give the fish the density, shade and variety that in turn will reduce stress and increase production.
Order includes 12 of our 8" diameter containers which are included, or pour the material into your own blocks or buckets. Try using the material along with other safe products for the fish, creating custom multi materials in each habitat group.
The material can be added to existing projects or any habitat plans you have with wet cement. PVC will not come loose and just gets placed into wet cement until hard. After cement cures, bend limbs to abstarct shapes and leave some hang, the fish like it all, seeking out the refuge and food the cover provides as well.
If you already have the wet cement to pour pipes and tubes into buckets, add additional shade and surfaces for protection and diversity. Add some brush and tall branches as well and the fish will find a new home. We prefer to use cement and sand only, or what is commonly known as mortor mix for bricklayers.
