You are right, the "old-fashioned" aquarium cement is asphalt-based.
W.T. Innes gives the following recipe:
Take pure asphalt (usually comes in broken up chunks) heat and mix
50:50 with heavy-bodied linseed oil. When moderately warm it should have
the consistency of putty.
Am I right in assuming the asphalt used in built up roofing is what we
are talking about here? If so which of the two grades should be used. It is
furnished as Dead Level Asphalt for flat roofs and Steep Asphalt for a roof
with a slight slope.
