It's made of glass fiber reinforced plastic...... so I'm wondering if anyone knows how hard this is to basically saw probably, and then carve out a hollow for a plec cave. I guess it's going to be messy and will then need a lot of sanding down etc to its smooth, and safe, for my fish but wondering if it'll be alright and whether or not it's just going to fall apart doing this!?!
Well, naturally the cut side will be on the bottom hidden by substrate. So that shouldn't be a problem. For the cave, you could just use a small clay flower pot, jar, or medicine bottle and hide the opening with plants, decor, etc. As for cutting, I would use a blade with very fine teeth and take it slow.
Have you thought of using natural stones with silicone sealant ?
