My experience has been that there is no one single best size or shaped cave. It depends on the sizes of the fish as well as their mood. I have had zebras spawn in a variety of sizes and differently shaped caves. The most important consideration is that the cave is not so big it prevents the trapping because the female can get around the male and out.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
