Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V5 #313

Larry Jones wants Affordable safe paints to make fake
rocks, etc. to glue to the back of his aquarium.

Any paint you use is not going to hold up very well to the
wiping, brushing, scrubbing, or ancistrus gnawing to remove
algae.  You can buy fake rocks and driftwood -- Hagen has
some halfway realistic stuff once you get in in the water
-- but the paint is the weakest aspect in the charade both
in terms of effective illusion and durability.

My suggestion: Let the bottom of your tank carry the weight
and build a wall with the real stuff, perhaps a skeletal
framework and epoxy.
