Yeah TC you do have some pretty amazing DIY rock there. But that would be about the only type of DIY rock i would try to make, let alone trust. Good work though.

Just be sure to cure it and be very aware of the PH. It will be amazingly high for awhile. Other then that it should be fun. I did it just to say I did and it came out very nice and pourous. Remember to make it thin or the pieces will come out to heavy. also don't use to much cement. you're not making a highrise. lol

I have a rock. No clue what kind it is but 1 side is all pouros (or however you spell it) and the other side is nice and smooth. But i can do cool stuff with it so i am going to mix it in with my live rock to make it live.
