I like natural looking fish decorations but I dont want to pay $30 for something someone picked up off the beach. so I made my own little rock caves for my fishies using many rocks and aquarium sealent (make sure it dries for 48hrs before adding it to your tank.)

Those are really neat! Where did you get the aquarium sealant?

petco, it's pretty cheap, I bought a tube for about $6 and so far I have sealed a ten gal, made three rock caves, and glued a few plastic plants to some rocks to keep them from floating away and I have about 1/3 of the tube left

Wow, That would be great for my turtle, I'm sure it gets tired of just having to dig to get covered up..

Oh this is a great idea! Thanks for posting this... I didn't think of the fact that you could actually seal the rocks together... I always have a problem setting up my turtle tank to hide the filter after cleaning it.. this could easily solve that problem...

All that the aquarium sealant is is pure silicon. You can go to Home Depot, and the 100% silicone that they sell for doing doors and windows works too. You just HAVE to make sure that you do NOT get the kind with the anti-fungal agents, that is toxic to fish. Silicone, most superglues, and Gorilla Glue are all fish safe :-)

Very nice!

Be sure to clean your rocks and findings before using them in your tanks and be certain to know if they will affect your PH levels, too.

Rock on!  ... har har.
