Use putty because if you ever need to change rockwork you can undo the pieces by applying pressure. But you'll need to chip the rock if you use epoxy

Any kind of non toxic putty should do.

Going to the Lfs today while I'm at work to pick some up.

Now was wondering one thing. Right now I have PVC pipe ran for my Morey. But tue way the new rock is going to be set up should have lots of little caves and opening. So should I just leave it a natural cave system for him or try to work in the PVC pipe again?

Got the ro/di unit up and running. Still need to hook up the auto shut off and get a better place for the trash can to be at and not in my hallway. But mainly just wanted to make sure it worked.

Thanks. Very scared with this set up. A lot of money is going into it. And I'm starting to freak out. Little bit.

It's ok, don't worry about it as much. Youre doing the best you can and youre learning along the way. i know I couldnt sleep for days before I setup my first sump I was so nervous. LOL

I've since gotten over that but now I'm stressing out bad about working with a predrilled tank. It's always soemthing. LOL

Yea I understand that. This one is drilled as well and starting to get worried about some of the parts.

But the plan for today is to get the dry rock in the tank and set up. Then I will worry about the piping for this thing.

And will need help with the stocking list I was given. Will post it as soon as I can. But I know we want a reef and not sure if the fish my gf picked r going to be good for a reef or even good with eachother. So will need help with sone of them. Lol
