hello all,

im sure there are loads of rookies like myself asking for help on here and the pros get bored of it but my situation is a bit different.

i have a 75 gallon that has been up and running for a year. i live in bermuda and im unable to buy anything living for saltwater so have to harvest everything. i plan on adding some zoanthis and cool sponges & tunicates as hard and soft corals are off limits, and apparently zoas are not coral??

anyway i did not do things correctly because again, different doing things when u have to find everything in the wild.

so i hqve recently added some shelf rock that i bought from bulk reef supply in the hopes of building a cool aquascape for the future additions. i have attached some pictures. the picture with purple rock is what i would like to build. the others are what i have to work with. will i be qble to build it using only apoxy and brs super glue. whats the best way to accomplish without harming the ecosystem?

First, hate to say it but it would've been tons easier to build the structure with dry work. Glue will set up a bit better, and no worries or dead bacteria with live outside the tank while you work on it.

Anyway generally when they do those types of aquascapes some use small clamps to hold the rocks together while they bond, others use water thin cyanoacrylate glue and super fine almost dust like sand to bond everything together. I'll attach a few videos I've seen on YouTube so you get an idea what I'm saying.
