Nice aquascape !Update — I have something that is beginning to resemble an aquascape! The left base structure!!
I’ve decided I want to make two separate rock structures for this build that are very minimalistic and bonsai-esq. Trying something different with this aquascape and making a cement base that will be hidden under the sand. I extended this base further along the route of the longest arch (yet to be attached) to support the weight, but will probably have to thicken it up more.
I don’t really know how to accurately describe what I have pictured in my head yet, but will give a better update soon as it starts to take shape more!
My attack plan moving forward is to build and cement the main arches for this larger rock structure on the left, then add all the pretty “details” — extending different branches out and placing shelf rock pieces, and camouflaging the concrete seams using broken rock pieces. Then of course building the second smaller structure using the same process!
LOT more left to do before it starts looking like an aquascape and it’s been a bit tedious having to do it in stages but it’s been a fun process and I’m enjoying it.
I’m using Real Reef Rock from (amazing to work with & has made this process actually enjoyable!) and a mix of purple and regular eMarco cement!
I will hopefully have a video out this week where I show how I actually constructed this thing up to this point, I’ll post it here as soon as it’s done!
