I found my river rocks from the craft store. The caves look great btw!

I remember someone on here not too long ago made some plants. That inspired me to make my own decorations.

AngelicScars - What kind of glue did you use? I tried to make a cave like yours but with PVC and the glue (aquarium safe silicone) just came off before it could dry.

I used Loctite aquarium safe silicone sealant. I haven't tried using it to glue rocks to PVC or plastic though. I've only stacked and glue the rocks together alone.

How do you make plants!? I missed that thread. I need some fake plants really, really badly. Not enough light for real ones. :(

hot glue is safe as long as its the clear sticks of glue. not the yellow.

also as far as makinf plants, a little easier way to do them instead of on a rock, is to take a 2" x 2" piece of plastic crossstitch mesh that people make dividers with. just bend the end of the stem about an inch and put it thu the mesh to lay flat and hot glue it to the mesh.
the mesh sits very easily hidden flat under the gravel, no unsightly glue either.
