Lava rock


Going to begin adding some hard scape, I have lava rock at home, was thinking about making like a moss wall on one side of my nano, well a sloping moss wall, would silicone work to piece together pieces of lava rock?

Get a hold of Larcat. He found a pond safe "Good-stuff" foam he used in his 12L scape on his rock work. It looked real nice. Silicone works but it's harder to hide from view.

Agreed. I haven't used good stuff; I have a big structure made of local rock that I put together and held using silicone. I really like the way it looks except the silicone is glaring and ugly. If you do use silicone you might want to try something to color it or something.
