For hides you could make your own coconut hides! Here’s a video of someone making one on Youtube: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MKsJOAZUS20
You could also take a piece of Tupperware and turn it upside down. Cut a door and use 100% silicone to attach pebbles to make a rock cave!

Unglazed terra lotta flowerpots? Put on their side, and you can always cover the opening with plastic plants and such.


Other good idea (that hasn't been mentioned above!) is using some driftwood (like flat peices, mopani is good for this) and then allowing them to dig their own cave underneath.


(PvC pipe buried in the sand is a good idea, or terra lotta pipes. Can also fill with moss! Could also make a small cave out of Tupperware.)

I've never had problems with 'Impulse Buying'... They're just animals/plants I forgot I had planned to purchase.
