    Hi Frank,
    I keep a variety of sizes in all my L tanks and let them decide on which they like.   I suppose odd size ones don't look the best and can certainly see an advantage of having all the same size.
    I will say that my L134's and L066's I rarely see in the 12 x 5 x 2.5's (in saying that I've never given them the option of just that size).  The L201's/L270's seem to use this size the most.   
    I'd perhaps suggest on maybe looking at a couple of slightly bigger in 14 x 6 x 3.5's or I even use the medium oval shaped for the larger L's and bigger peppermints.    
    I also have had a lot of success with the rectangular style caves.  I'm pretty sure most of mine were Zig Zag brand which are a darker colour to the others but I'm not even sure if you can still get this type anywhere.
    Best of luck.
    Cheers,
    Jason

    There definitely is a feeling of self entitlement.
    There is also a real lack of knowledge in the hobby too. People seem to be to lazy or afraid to research. They hear one wives tale, from another person & attach themselves to it like glue.
    People also don't seem to hang around more the experienced fish keepers. Pick up tips, information etc... Then again, the demise of the LFS has made this harder too.
    I know I come across as an arsehole, I get told it often. People really do give out poor information... ie; "just add salt" without any other information. People like myself, only post because care. It's funny to quote out of a text book, to be told you're wrong... Oh well, move on!
    As said earlier, it isn't limited to this scene either. Be a part of any group, sports, clubs, hobby groups.... They're all the same. Took the good, with the bad
