hey ChazYork,

others are right about the epoxy stuff. As for the rock building, I've made over 100lb of my own rocks now and it is a great way to go. Use crushed oyster shell though, not aragonite as it is WAY WAY cheaper (like $10 for 100lb at a farm supply store) and much more porous. I've done 5 or six batches now and am always abel to build the structures I want. I've broke a few but not many.

You do need serious patience though. (to cure and to become coraline encrusted) I've got a 30 g and a 60 gallon tank running and have bought less than 20lbs of live rock even though they have about 120 lbs total.


Equipment: 33G SW Reef tank (pic), 192W Coralife PC lighting, PHs for H2O circulation, Red Sea Berlin Classic Skimmer
Aquascaping: 3" DSB, 50lb live rock (~35 lbs home made Cement Base Rock)
Clean Up Crew: Blue Leg hermits, Cerith snails, Astrea Snails, Stomatella snails, Brittlestar, banded brittles.
Critters: Hawaiian feather duster, Coral Banded Shrimp, Emerald Crab
Corals: Open Brain Coral, Cabbage coral, 4 RBTAs, Melon mushrooms, green Zoos, yellow polyps, finger Leather, orange Zoos, Brown Zoos, Chocolate Zoos, Xenia, GSP, Kenya Tree Coral, 2 acropora SPS, blue sponge, candy cane
Fish/Inverts: Maroon Clownfish, Scooter Blenny, Coral Beauty dwarf angel, Sea Hare
