      Hi . I only read your 2011 messages now. In regards to artificial rock.

      I see you have been on 2 weeks ago so here goes: In terms of curing and setting portland cement. The setting is the most important part of working with cement as this is when the crystal structure forms which provide your cement with strength.

      From the wiki on Portland cement. :

      Portland cement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Basically that first setting process could take minutes for the crystals to form.
      IMPORTANT: when you actually make the shapes they must not be fully submerged only stay damp till they set. Hours. Later you can fully submerge or continue to wet it.

      Curing: Old runoff water or RO water or even NSW for this process to leech out chemicals and the coarse pool salt you used to create air cavities.

      hope this helps

      I honestly don't know, best to ask that question on the forum and hopefully one of the tank builders will be able to help you.

      Hi there, I bought a bag of whie cement from chamberlains, swimmingpool salt, and aragonite.

      You mix it 1:2:3 (1 part cement, 2 parts aragonite, 3 parts salt)

      I'm still curing the rock, it has to cure for 6 weeks...

      waiting for my new tank to be up and running...
