I think a selection of caves is more important than one cave that is very specific in size and material
, give the fish the choice.

I collected some alder pieces yesterday. 2 are approx 50mm dia and 2 are 100mm dia. I used a 25mm and a 31mm spade bit to drill caves in each. The 50mm logs have a single cave at 25mm while the 100mm have two 25mm at one end and a single 31mm at the opposite end. These all went in with the p. maccus housed in a 29g.
