    Hey guys

    I was wondering if anybody can give me some tips. My one top rock keeps falling off, I dont know if its my clown pushing it down? I have no space for cable ties so does anyone know what glue I can use? I heard about the marine epoxy but where can I get a good one?

    Thanks

    hi

    you can go to builders and use Std pratleys putty or alcolin aquamend, both will set under water

    i prefer aquamend and it doesnt cloud the water

    What size is the clown and the rocks he is pushing around. Maybe he learned that there are food underneath or behind the rocks.

    The clown is about 7-8cm. Maroon clown. The rocks arent that big let me show you a pic, but it was ever since I changed some of my rock work?
