    Thank you.
    Will it work if the rock is wet. And how long does it take to set be for I can put the rock back in the tank.

    I use the quick set. Works better for me as it sets quicker

    If its really big pieces. And you might need to move them one day. Then using plastic rods is an alternative. Drill a 8 or 10mm hole right trough the rock, depending on rock thickness.
