Things are still improving, looks like I'm getting full extension from all my corals and the sand is becoming whiter.

Also! Started working on my aquascape for a new tank I bought.

Really like how it’s coming along so far. Used Marco rock and Thin CA + sand for bonding. I can pick the structure up by any point and it feels super secure. Really impressive.

Looks great. Do you just mix some thin CA with sand and then apply it onto the rock and hold them together for a few mins? Or what’s the process

Thank you!

Yep, I sprinkle dry sand into the joint, then apply thin CA, then a little more dry sand on top of it. It sets super quickly. 5-10 seconds. I then went back over with some Marco cement on the bottom of the overhangs to make sure it’s a good bond.

Funny thing, my girlfriend accidentally knocked the structure over, and the rock broke. Not the joints.

Awesome I’ll try this. Which brand CA?
