I have a plethora of plastic pipes for my loaches, plecs etc in my 240L tank.

My problem is some float! So it's a balancing act between weighing them down to stop them floating and not putting too much weight on otherwise they get buried in the gravel.

Does anyone have any tips please? I'm unblocking tubes daily!

Thanks in advance,

Bis

They naturally float, no air.

Glue gravel to them is a good idea but would be concerned about glue poisoning water. Any suggestions on glue?

Thanks for the quick reply!

I had a friend who made caves of PVC pipe by smearing them with aquarium silicone and rolling them in aquarium gravel. They were really neat and made excellent caves that were smooth inside to keep the fish safe but looked like they belonged in the tank as part of the decor.
