The Fortress Self Opening Fish Habitat


Product Description

 350.jpg  351.jpg

We have opened a new chapter in the artificial habitat handbook with a whole new set of possibilities in fisheries management. This first of it's kind Fortress of cover, unfolds itself straight out of the box and comes ready to landscape your underwater terrain.

Free shipping included to your door


Nothing to do but toss in water from about two to six feet deep and enjoy what comes next. 


Although this unit has no set up and can be installed directly out of the box, you can always pinch and bend any of the material to a shape you like most. The strong but flexible material holds up to any abuse by nature, fish and fisherman.


Always made from pre-consumer 100% PVC scrap, these vinyl pieces look and flow underwater like actual plants. The seven different styles of cuts and textures allow young of the year fishes, countless small hiding places for protection.

Affected by gravity above water laying almost flat, these self contained and colorful condos of cover become weightless underwater. Flowing back and forth with waves and current, the limbs hover inches above the lake floor, creating the important basement level.


Three separate integrated containers, each containing unique textures and lengths of flexible PVC vinyl, blend together to create this new burst of infinite tight hiding spaces for smaller fish. (FISHIDING) The textured finish of the material allows algae and periphyton to attach readily on the substantially flat limb. In turn, the smaller fish graze on this important food source, allowing them to grow to a proper size for larger fish.

The Fortress shallow fish habitat by Fishiding.com

The Fortess fish habitat models stands 36 inches tall in the eight inch base when installed as arrives, or can be bent down shorter if desired. Remove the twist ties and this 15 pound unit opens to a full five foot six diameter, with hundreds of separate strands and limbs to protect the fish, totaling approximately 85 square feet of surface area.

Just add water and this model will grow food, grow fish and grow very old. Smooth and snag free, this model almost looks to good to plant in the lake instead of the yard.............no shovel needed!

We have been working on another shallow model for the fry in depths of 4 feet and under. This lifelike and flowing new model will surely grow lots of fish along with periphyton to graze upon on the multiple textures of the array of different cuts included. Coming early this summer..............

    Super artificial foliage, definitely deploy out on its only
    I tried to deploy the in the pond on a windy day and had troubles, they keep tipping over. I’m going to at a large concrete and re-deploy. I really like the shape and will be buying more material to build similar units.

    This habitat looks so real, we wanted to put them around our deck. We love the look of them along our pier, mostly green now and always has schools of baitfish around. Grandkids named them and have contests to see who catches biggest/most. Thanks!
