There aren't any branches in it but it's easily chiseled. I broke some up to fit my branches of live rock.

I was barbaric and just used a hammer mostly and sometimes a screwdriver.. You could definitely make some cool arches with the stuff.

Awesome! Now, we were thinking about just glueing the arch. We will probably move stuff around eventually, and dont want it all to be glued together.

Just the arc would be a good idea, them it won't fall apart. I really wish I would've done that. Mine wobbles a lot.

Nooo, get a epoxy recommended for underwater use such as Holdfast. I made that mistake and wasted $15 at Lowes. Petco sells holdfast and it even attaches to liverock
