Been messing around with some rock scape ideas.

Finding it hard to come up with something for a square cube. 🤪

It's just little over half at 14" and leaves room to grow up the rest of the tank.  Not sure might have mess around some more.

Finally got it glued together.  I did a video of the scape  so you can see the depth.

 

 

 

There is about 11 1/4"  to the top top of the tank from the tip of the rock.  Taking an inch or so for water level gives me about 10".  So should be plenty of room for hammer's or frog spawn.  Still trying to come up with some ideas for the sps  we have and where to put that.

I think we will fill in the gaps and do some cement work or more super glue. Seems to be holding pretty well though. We used the BRS large tube with the spray works pretty good. Would buy it again if I am ordering something.

BRS super glue.  I only used it in few spots and it's doing good but I want to follow up with something more permanent.  I will have to look at that stuff you suggested.  I don't want to buy a ton as l don't think I need that much to finish it up.   Looked at jb- wet and some hydrologic cement too.  I'm open to some inexpensive options.😁

the JB stuff is the cheapest option.............. I use it at times and its reef safe.

The epoxy or the putty?  I've used the two part epoxy would like the option to put sand on it if possible.

So if I was to do it again I would have got 4 or five sticks.  Total for 3 was $13 shipped to my door from Amazon.

We will not see the backside, but it's not going anywhere.

Also filled in the gap with smaller rubble. One other thing lightly have your fingers wet when mixing and application. It's easier and a lot cleaner.

Still trying to figure out where to put the heaters. I think so far going to go with two 150w Jagers in the over flow with an Inkbird.  If anyone has any other suggestions post up.  Going to focus on the plumbing now and need to order some bulkheads and a gate valve.  Not sure on pipe size yet.  Thinking 1" out from the pump.     I am trying to figure out a way to make water changes easy. Open for suggestions on the inexpensive side.  Maybe something with the plumbing going in.  All for now.
