    A little bit of moving around vs. a complete redo. I'm not sure if I'm up to it, but the idea of having expert help is motivating. Sone of my rocks are very hard to drill. How do I send a photo?

    If you have an extra hand to pour some RODI over your drill site it'll help keep your bit cool and should drill a lot easier with your masonry bit. If you're using Tap Talk hit the + button at bottom left of screen and you have more options to take photos or choose from library, etc.

    Started up Taptalk and will send a photo as soon as tank lights come up.

    Where do you guys get your acrylic rods? I tried just using epoxy alone but it wasn't enough to keep my scape together.

    At any Home Depot or other home store. You can search your local HD website for "acrylic driveway rods" and their site will tell you exactly what isle and bin they're located :)

    Also, I recommend you use this if it's still available from Marco ;-) [​IMG]

    So on a 6' tank you just stretch out the "tic tac toe" board, and still focus on hitting the four points only?

    Thanks for liking my aquascape. It's really not that purple and the sand is white.

    Those brackets come from Rakks Brackets. I sent you a pm as well but just in case anybody on here is wondering. They work great because they have no clearance issues. Hope that helps you out!

    I did mine outside of the tank. No luck with drilling rock....it sucked, but mortared them together and it worked great!

    Actually I only found fiberglass driveway rods. Are you sure they were acrylic?

    Are they really acrylic or are they fiberglass? Do you have any pictures of the rods? Thanks in advance.
