    DIY fake tree stumps/limbs

    Has anyone tried to make a fake tree stump or limbs? The kind that are placed against the back wall of the tank (inside.)

    I was thinking of trying to make some for my tank from that expandable foam, but I don't know if it's tank safe.

    On another note, is there a paint I can use for underwater decorations?

    I was also wondering if I can use Krylon Fusion on PVC that will be inside the tank.

    I remember reading about someone making a large rock for his breeding pair of Jags in a 1000g tank. It actually floated and had to put holes in it to keep on the bottom. As soon as I get a chance I'll let you know the details. Not sure what it was made out of?

    Dr. Joe:

    The second link isn't working for me, comes up as "Sorry, no matches."

    Did JoelR ever fix the problem with the PH caused by the wall he made?

    Anyway, thanks for the link!

    It should have been the index of a search..

    Do a seach from the this (DIY Projects & Ideas) for DIY backgrounds, there are some amazing ones here.

    Think so but PM JoelR for the exact answers.

    Sorry Dr. Joe. Did a search and found the paint answer--at length. Just jumped in on impulse in this thread yesterday. In my defense I am an old guy and not much for using computers. I'll try to "think" before I type next time.

    A word of caution on the Krylon fusion.

    I painted some PVC with it, it looked great. Used the black. Nice and very tough.

    Added 3-5 plecos to the tank; couple of Panaque and trio of smaller "clown" types. They scrape the paint right off- now it looks like its been sandblasted.

    How long did you let it cure? Just curious...

    Some pleco's develop a taste for the strangest things, like they can't stop themselves. You should see some of my sponge filters. It's like having nice things and little kids...not going to happen . (But pleco's are any better when they grow up, most kids are )
