I always have more caves than males. Caves not only serve as a place the spawning males will claim, they also serve as places to hide for the the others. Excess caves also afford the opportunity for the fish to select the "best" cave from their perspective. A bit of different current or its placement or how much light gets in, things which we cannot discern, may often be what attracts a fish to a given spot.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
