DIY Live Rock Questions

I'm planing on making my own live rock. Would it be okay to use just Portland cement with no oyster shells or crushed coral? Or will that just cause the rock to be very heavy?

First, you need to delete your messages ;P
Secod, you mix portland cement with water and make it kinda moist but not too wet, shape rock in sand and put cement in. Wait. Lol

Use it as base and Possibly seed it from his live rock to sell? If so that will work if it's for his tank then no you need to buy live IMO
