Make sure those top rocks are stable. You don't want anything toppling down and cracking your glass, or hurting one of your fish. But it is looking good!

Thanks for the reminder. BTW do you know any kind of glue I can use for these top rocks? Right now if I touch them it will be a mess...! I need something strong and biologically safe...

Any super glue labeled as "cyanoacrylate" is safe for your aquarium. I find it cheapest at the dollar store.

Removing rocks while cycling

Thank you for the info. Never knew I could use cyanocrilate (or whatever) in the aquarium..!
Anyway... in order to tie the rocks or glue them (which is what I'm probably doing) do I have to wait to the cycle to finish or I can just take them out , do my work and return them into the tank?

As you can see I'm in the middle of the cycle.

Thank you guys and gals.

BTW here are my numbers today.

pH: 8.0
Ammonia: 3.0
Nitrite: 2.0
NItrate: 10
Temp: 78.9
Salinity: 1.023

Take em out and put into a bucket with tank water and move to your workspace. Do the work, exposing them to air is fine, try to be quick tho. Then put them right back in the tank.
Or just pull the top one out, add glue gel to it and stick it where it needs to go in the tank.
You can also use aquarium epoxy or even plumbers epoxy as long as it is safe for potable water lines. Although it is kinda ugly, if it's between rocks you should be fine. I fine the epoxy bond is weaker than the rocks so they can be separated if you want. It might make your skimmer go nuts tho.
