Product Details

Fishiding artificial fish habitat products have led the industry, producing innovative forms of strictly reclaimed, PVC artificial fish habitat since 2008, focusing on fish growth and reproduction. Flexible limbs of all sizes and massive surface area, produce shade, food and protection. From impenetrable shallow water fry/forage cover up to 15' tall spires of vertical habitat, all models bend to shape and/or drop in the lake directly out of the box with no needed tools or supplies.

Fishiding artificial habitat products simply put,  protect and grow more fish.

 Artificial habitat products utilizing reclaimed pre and post consumer rigid PVC without manufacturing. Unlike standard recycling which requires breaking down to re-manufacture, by using reclaimed materials no additional plastics, chemicals or energy to produce are needed. By re-using existing unwanted materials in their original form, a multitude of advantages continue to emerge. Each individual habitat model is unique with no two units being exactly the same, creating unlimited textures and variety, closely mimicking nature and what fish prefer.


Dozens of individual and unique models offer variety in size, texture, shape and densities, creating a protective multitude of fishiding locations.

 Handmade artificial fish habitat products, each individual habitat unit is unique.

Each unit consists of a rigid PVC base, various lengths, widths and sizes of substantially flat limbs. Models are bent by hand to form intricate and realistic aquatic plant textures and cover. Some self opening models, simply unwrap and get dropped directly in the lake. Fishiding habitat units also provide wide, shade producing cover along with textured and weathered surfaces throughout, promoting periphyton and algae growth.

All habitat units come with self standing incorporated weight and can be bent into the desired shape before being placed in the water by tossing overboard or “planting” on a dry lake bed. Individual habitat models range in surface area from 10 sq.' to well over 500 sq. ' per unit.

 Fishiding Habitats provide long term cover in shallow, transition and deep water. 



Materials:  Materials consist of substantially flat reclaimed PVC materials and cement. We have always been firm in using only reclaimed PVC materials destined for landfills, doing our part in helping the environment. We can't support the use and manufacture of new plastics for fish habitat.



Textures: The unlimited degrees of texture, shape and flexibility, allow fish to escape and flourish within the realistic maze of smooth and snag free limbs, strands and shade producing cover.


   Structures should be placed in clusters of five or more to improve mass and effectiveness with limbs just touching adjacent unit.  Varying base weights and diameters ensure vertical stability. Each unit is hand made in the USA.

  lifespan of structure:  Long term, indefinitely if buried undersground or underwater and kept un-exposed to UV light and air. Direct sunlight for extended periods of time will warm and soften all plastics, including PVC. Keep all plastics and habitat out of direct sunlight and heat for extended periods.
