    Very nice!! It looks a bit unstable though. I strongly suggest you glue it together :).

    I'd use 100% silicone to do it and then allow the rocks to dry for a full 24 hours before adding them back to the tank.

    When shopping for silicone, make sure it isn't mold or mildew resistant. They add chemicals to kill mold. GE Silicone 1 works well.
