Java Moss Coconut Cave

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to buy or build a coconut cave for my 60 gallon aquarium. First off, is a coconut cave something I can buy at a pet store or is it something I have to build? Not that I don't mind building one.
    Where can I get the supplies to do so and how do I build it? Does Walmart or Jewel even sell coconuts? Does Petsmart sell Java moss?

    i built mine from coconut shells i got at krogers; im sure i have instructions on here somewhere.
    basically split it in half and get most of the coconut meat out and boil the shell. its full of tannin.
    i used a small hacksaw to cut open a door. my plecs love it.
