Thank you so much!

I did it all by hand. I first put the sticks in where I wanted them. Then I wen from right to left replanting things and moving the rocks slowly. I tried not to disturb the gravel. I did a 30% WC after it too.

I used this aquarium safe epoxy to get the smaller pieces of wood to stick to some rocks. other then that I just lodged the rest in there hahah.

I can't wait until it grows out!

I used this: Aquarium Systems HoldFasT Epoxy Stick - Fish - Web Exclusive - PetSmart

I got it at petsmart, it looks the same but it was an Ocean brand or something. It said it was aquarium safe on it. I look everywhere to only find it in the salt water section lol.

Thanks Jayy,

I found those stick behind the apartment complex I live in. They were really dry and looked really white so I thought they were the perfect candidates.

I took them home and cleaned it really well. I left it soaking for about 24 hours because I couldn't boil it in my pot. Otherwise I would have boiled it for 2-3 hours.

After my very thorough cleaning and soaking I epoxied them to some rocks and VUALA.

3 of the sticks are not attached to rocks and are firmly placed in there.
