DIY Rock Cave

Just got into hobby and have a 55 gallon tank I spent last 3 weeks cycling and ready for fish. I did some DIY rock caves out of a plastic 16 oz cup with GE Silicone I and wanted to share :-D

They like it! I added some yello labs and acei and it works well for them

What type of glue did you use and how do you make sure its not toxic to the fish?

There is aquarium silicone or you can go to Home Depot and Purchase for like $5 GE Silicone I. It has to be GE I as it doesn't have any anti mold chemicals that can harm fish

Glad to help. It has to be let to dry (cure) for 24 hours. I had to use a razor to cut the plastic off.
