I'd like to make some ledges in my future rockwork. I cannot, however, find any shelf rock/flat rock. Any ideas? I knew that BRS sold it at one time, but I no longer see it on there. Please let me know. Thank you. :rollface:
maybe fabricate some out of plastic screening, plastic rebar and styrocrete or aragocrete etc
a little bag of cement makes for a lot of fun actually. throw everything in it but the kitchen sink(unless it is plastic, then chop that up and throw it in too )
youcan sandcast big flat plates, and the cast side looks like whatever it picked up from the cast material, which could be even small rubble w/e. it is cheap enough to try all kinds of stuff until you are liking the results.
edit: styrocrete = styrene-crete, NOT styrofoam-crete, better make that distinction. i dont think i want styrofoam in the water. i'm thinking like modelling sprues etc
You might check your local gardening or landscape stores and see if they have those flat 'flagstones' or whatever they're called. I know you can get some that are limestone which would be okay in your tank, and you could use a hammer to break them up if needed.
I have some really big pieces that could be cut or broken or used whole. I got mine from Marco Rocks. He was nice enough to hand pick and special deliver to me. They are in my 300 which will be part of a bigger system in near future and the shelfs are coming out. I like the look and they are really nice to place your corals, but I find them labor intensive to keep clean. Maybe you already have a plan to will direct alot of flow at yours to avoid this. The waste REALLY collects on these shelfs. When I pull them out I will contact you if you like?
