Hello All, I have thought about doing this for a while and have looked at a number of others online and haven't been too happy with what I saw for one reason or another.
My goal is to create a rock formation out of...ROCKs that my fish can swim around, hide in and play with. I started out by gathering some 30 rocks of different shapes and colours from my backyard and cleaned them then boiled them.
I then started playing around with them and took pictures to see what looks as natural and useful as possible. I soon came to find almost everything looking fake so decided instead to make " building blocks" out of the rocks to in the end place in different configurations.
I used gel superglue because one of the looks I didn't like was the tonnes of silicone among the rocks. As you can see from the below picture, just a little gel superglue was able to stick the rocks together ( after leaving over night to completely dry) without barely any visible glue.
After the groups dried, I spent time working different configurations and took pictures to remind myself of the different options
