    Hi

    I used Aqua cement that I picked up from Builders warehouse. And it seems to be working fine. It takes about 30min to set, and I haven't had any noticeable negative effects

    my one rock structure got a plastic rod.

    If they were together it would be just too heavy to lift out. Nod at least I can play lego.

    I have shaped the rocks a little with a chisel, so that they fit together nicely. I then used a 19mm masonry drill to make holes that were not parallel so the friction would hold the rocks in place. Instead of PVC I used that orange plumbing piping( it is a bit rubbery so it can bend if the holes are not perfectly aligned). This has allowed me to make rock stacks that are about 60cm high, can be assembled like Lego inside the tank and do not need and adhesives (I have used a little coral putty to make sure they do not wobble about)
