Aquascaping Ideas..!

Hi everyone,

As im about to set up my 100gal in 2 weeks, I've gained quite a bit of knowledge and learnt alot from my first tank 75gal. I am wanting to aquascape my next tank using ledges and caves etc. Just wanting to know how you guys do it. I was thinking of using PVC piping, drilling holes in the rocks and sliding them onto the pipe? Any feedback or any other ways of doing it would be great!!

You could do that but you can also just stack the rock how you like.

I think it's a cool method of stacking. With PVC, you're going to be able to stack rocks that look off center, creating a cool ledge effect. I think it's a great idea! Please tell us how it goes.

Good idea but you are going to need a large base rock so it will not get top heavy and tip. You can also buy clear plastic dial rods that will require a smaller hole and be less visible. Stainless steel is another option but cost will be much higher

I've heard of people using aquarium sealant. What about that?
