Well I've been using 4 parts crushed oyster shell to 1.5 parts #1 portland, throw in a couple handfuls of spegehti noodles, straws, whatever, and the special ingrediant salt rock to get some extra nooks and crannies. I leave it in the oyster shell 'mold' for about 48 hours to set up good, let it cure for a few days before beginning it's 6-8 week bath in water. I like to run the output from the RO/DI through the curing vat since I run it every three days. when the PH holds steady to the fresh water for a week solid then it's ready for a couple weeks saltwater curing... then to live tank to start gowing.
Made a lot of pretty cool pieces, now a year old you can't it apart from the LR
I purchased, or the new base rock tuned live, seems the agrocrete colorlined over faster than the base tock.... I've been pleased, but nothing like that totally awesome piece like reefscape boy's pictured above
... Now I have a goal!!! Is that all one solid piece? Any secrets you're willig to part with to create something like that?
The tank is pretty much on autopilot now, so time to start playing and making new rock and some plugs for the fall trades.
