As stated in the title, have you used polygem? If so how was your experience and what was in your tank (corals, fish only, etc)?

I bought some about 7 years ago because I saw it on tanked, but never used it. From what I can find its still made and being used in public aquariums, so I'd like to think its reef safe.

I want to sculpt some live rock type stuff to hide equipment. I have also had some ideas for some decorative frag plugs, we will call them and want to try some casting and stamping.

I'm familiar with glue and rock/sand. I've used the two part putty for mounting frags and making small live rock type stuff. It would work for stamping but not for casting and its too pricey.

The polygem is perfect and I'm surprised no one has used it, since it was on practically every episode of tanked.

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
