    My tank

    Hi crispin

    I am building a 900mm X 900mm X 600mm Deep tank. I have hiema helping me with the design and setup.

    I m looking at setting up a soft coral tank with a couple of clowns. 200 Watts of LED's with some mixed colours. Red/Blue/White. I hope that it isn't too ambitious :thumbup:

    Couldn't find any black silicone so am going to have to settle with clear for now.

    Don't settle Joe, find the black stuff. Rather take more time and get what you planned for.

    You can use portland white cement mixed with aragonite & add coarse salt to create cavities once died after a couple of weeks the soak it in RO for more than a couple of weeks... Portland white cement is ok to use...:thumbup:
