Do you think it would work to brush the glue onto the tube, then roll it in gravel or sand?
Great tank you have, thanks for posting.
, soon I hope. As far as the tubes if the glue is thick enough rolling it in gravel should work. The sand will not work.... The problem with rolling the gravel is gravity. The stones/gravel on the bottom side tend to fall off until the glue sets a bit. As far as sand rolling it just seems to embed it into the glue and not stay on the surface. I have had luck with the sand by applying a thin layer of glue and then dumping the sand onto it.
Good luck and let me know how it turns out. I do have pics going for my shelf ideal and I will post them tonight
