#285: How to Make a Coconut Hide for Aquarium, Crayfish, Hermit Crabs, Fish – DIY Wednesday

Make sure to find the biggest and most ripe coconut possible as they are often priced per coconut and not per pound. Darker coconuts are ripe and are generally easier to separate the coconut meat from the shell. Plecos like to suck on them, and they’ll last forever inside your tank.

This was a quick project that anyone should be able to do! Don’t buy these from the store, make them yourself!
