*Sigh* Housing problem for fatties

The fatties(large clowns) still cannot fit into the caves i put in for all my loaches, clowns yoyos and skunks. All the medium and below clowns and other loaches hide in their cave while the big ones try to squeeze in sidewards...

I remembered someone showed me caves made from slate but those are too low... and too high, they are rather unstable when the large clowns push their way out...sigh everything just tumbles...

Can I just put a large drift wood and let the big ones crowd around it ? is it alright ?

Or should i put lots of stones and stack them...but no way the fatties can squeeze in.

I conclude that from all the ways i have tried to build a large enough home for them to live in has failed....

Help...Especially those with large clowns...
