Hi guys,

I'd like to attach some live rock to my tank to grow some basic coral on, a 'floating' scape as such. My plan is to attach strong magnets with aquascape putty but I need some advice on which magnets are safe. Does anyone have any links to safe magnets? (I'm in the UK)

Thanks in advance

Brs sells rocks with magnets already imbedded into them.
But i know your in UK and idk if they ship there.
Google search magnetic liverock.

They do sell epoxy coated magnets but most that go into the water will need to be encased in plastic or something non porous.

The epoxy coating is good for the outside of the tank so its not exposed to salt air.
 

How many tangs (surgeonfish) do you have in your reef tank?
