So I needed a cave to make my apistogramma iniridae pair happy. I dont expect a successful spawn, but wanted to give them a cave anyway. My plan is to attach java moss to the top of it so it blends in better with my tank.

So far I have gotten as far as eating the coconut. I cleaned off all of the meat from inside, so do I need to do anything to the shells besides cut a door in them? Do I have to worry about pesticides? Should I soak them for a few days, weeks, hours?

Its a planted south american tank so pots and plastic are out of the question. In addition, I dont have any other rocks in the tank, so a cave might look a little out of place, and take up more space then I want it to. I decided on the coconut shell because I can cover it with java moss so it blends in nicely with the rest of the tank.

Yes, it will rot. So will my driftwood. In my experience, its going to take a long time for it to break down, and I can always replace it if it gets too bad.
