Made these myself.. They're small for now as I didn't have a whole lot to work with. But after getting in touch with my crafty side, I'd like to make more. They're held together with Marineland sealant and it''
s pretty strong stuff. These rocks are much darker in the water with notes of orange here and there. I'd like to make them in different variations like- taller, longer.. More cave like, taller slots.. With artificial plants, sand and even some river rocks or colored pebbles. What do you all think? Do you think anyone would be interested in buying any from me? It'd be a cool hobby for me and could make them to order/how you wanted them. Thanks ☺

They look very nice! Are they real rock or styrofoam?
Thank you ☺ they're real rock. I got them years ago and they passed the vinegar test. So I gave em a good wash and put em in my tank. They never leeched or seemed to affect my PH so I was happy with them. They are quite heavy, though.

You are lucky. I looked for rocks like this for what seemed like forever and couldn't find any. If I were starting up another new tank I would definitely be interested in some. As it is I am "tanked" enough.

Honestly I'm not sure where they came from. My step dad had a TON of them. I'm supposing for some project he was doing and told me I could have as many as I wanted for my tank. He has a drum full of them still, so I can make a lot more. I really want to spread the word and maybe people will be interested. I just think I'd enjoy it and as a stay at home mom, it'd make me a little extra cash.
