Is there any issues with carving dry rock with a dremel(tungsten carbide metal bits). I'm a tattoo artist and am starting my first reef tank. I'm not able to get it going for a few weeks(wife wants the walls painted and floors done first) and was thinking about trying to do some sculpture type stuff with dry rock in the mean time. I was wondering if anyone else had done this and the pros and cons of it.

Dremel should be fine. Be sure to rinse rock well if dust and particulates and consider coral putty or cement for assembly

I carve and cut LR all the time with this bad boy with a diamond tipped steel cutting disc.

Zero issues...
