Black Hills Tj As was previously mentioned in this thread, I think the best way to make the islands would be to use a magnetic frag rack. Simple to "decorate" with your plant(s) of choice, and easy to move for re-scapes and cleaning

Curious as to why you dont think this would work. Is it because silicone wont adhere to the rock well or something else?
