    Howdy all... I was wondering about aquascaping and toiling around with the idea of using egg crate and sticking lava roack onto the structure off egg crate by means of glue, silicone and cable ties. Has any ony tried this? I am looking at making the rock I cant find .... Good or bad idea? :whistling:

    only issue with lava rock is it will trap detritus and may become a nitrate factory over time. Great idea though
