    i have 2 55 gallon freshwater tanks 1 tank has angels and the other rasboras for now....the angel tank is almost complete except needing a few more rocks...the other 55 gallon tank with the castles im awaiting for teddy cholla to arrive so i can hide the heaters and intake pipes as i did in the angel tank...my question on sealant use is ....Is there a way you can take left over gravel and form it into balls, rock looking designs and such with out having to jus take a handfull of sealant and a handfull of gravel and mix and have stuck gravel on hands and everywhere....

    Its time consuming but you can just put a dab on and stick a rock on and use it like you would super glue or hot glue.

    I have never stuck a bunch of small rocks together but thats how i built bigger rock structures so they wouldn't fall down.

    My angel tank i used pvc pipe and siliconed that and rolled the pipe in the rocks..when dried i did touch ups for missing spots...it houses the tank heaters...maybe whenever the snow decides its done in my area ill get out to looking for rocks to use thanks again
