The "real" grippers that are meant for the task are like $35 so I tried the cheap option first. LOL

are the 15$ grabbers sturdy enough to pick up rock and manoeuvre it around?

you may still have to go swimming.

I just got a 180 off of a local forum. I won't be like you, having it up and running in a one hour show but I will try to make it look as nice I hope.

Thanks. I will start one once I get my 110g sold. I made it really cheap on the local forum here. I need the funds to start buying stuff. I think the only things that cost more than this hobby are kids, wife and house. Everything else, including food, is cheap in comparison.
