    This are plugs that will last for over 100 years in water, I called and verified with “Cement Mix†Safe for ponds after cure, no toxic chemicals, 9000 psi after 28 days, this plugs are super duper strong “FORGET ABOUT ITâ€. You must let them cure before introducing to the aquarium for at least 45 days.

    Step 1 make the forms

    If you like, use this 1/2" drill bit from HD to make natural plug holders:)

    You can also use a grinder to make the plugs smoother. Have fun. Never buy a plug again LOL

    The curing to bring to a natural PH is 28 days in water, the cement is all natural, you can download the DATA sheet from the above link and I also called about 3 times myself and spoke to their chemist. I would cure in water for about 45 days. Also you can pretty much use the media of your choice

    You could probably cure them in a plastic basket in your toilet tank. The water would change every time you flushed it.
