There aren't any branches in it but it's easily chiseled. I broke some up to fit my branches of live rock.

I was barbaric and just used a hammer mostly and sometimes a screwdriver.. You could definitely make some cool arches with the stuff.

Awesome! Now, we were thinking about just glueing the arch. We will probably move stuff around eventually, and dont want it all to be glued together.

Just the arc would be a good idea, them it won't fall apart. I really wish I would've done that. Mine wobbles a lot.

Nooo, get a epoxy recommended for underwater use such as Holdfast. I made that mistake and wasted $15 at Lowes. Petco sells holdfast and it even attaches to liverock

Yep, it's made for attaching frags to rocks and aquascaping. The other putty would fall apart in the tank.

Any fish store should have it. It doesn't look bad either.

Maybe around 6-10 lol They usually know what size tank its for when you order so they try to add pieces to fit your tank. I got 20 3lb pieces since I asked for that many.
