DIY pvc caves ideas??

I made a pvc cave for my tank but I want to get it to look more natural. What is a good way to do that? Thanks!

You could glue pond stones around it

Heat down the PVC with a heat gun and mold it to get dentures and lumps, then Glue on other rocks, etc.


Hehe just my thought.

You can use waterfall foam sealant and small rocks/rubble to get the desired look. Pretty easy to do and looks good.

Use a non toxic adhesive and cover the PVC with it.
Then till the PVC in your gravel. It'll look like it's a part of your substrate!
