Hey so I’ve read a lot online of people using Portland cement for aquarium décor, etc. and I see Aquaforest do a product ‘Stone Fix’ which says contains Portland cement. So I’m just going to buy Portland cement from a builders supply shop. Is there anything i should look out for on the packaging?


Thanks

Hi @Livvie

No idea on getting real portland cement.  However I've been trying to use this Aquaforest stuff to make some rockwork and I must say I didn't find it easy to work with. 

What are you hoping to join with it?

I want to make faux rock work for my Malawi community as real rocks are too heavy and awkward for me to manage. I also would like to attach together some zoas i have which are currently frags on small rocks, to make a large rock piece covered with different zoas.
Thanks.
