Aquarium Background Once dried get some sand paper and take all the rough parts off as tanking slurry has grit in it which will be quite harsh and shred any fish that swims against it. I picked up a piece and it slipped slightly in my hand and shredded my finger as if it went through a cheese grater so wear gloves! After going all over the work wash down with a hose to take all dust and flakey bits off leave to dry outside.
#Aquarium #Background Finished with #tanking slurry water down mix. Leave for 10-15mins as it will start to go off and this is the point you want get shaping and carving your #rocks. Smooth off round parts with your hands carve any irregular markings, build up areas you want and make random scrape marks. Don't try to be to precise as it will look to planed out and the end result will show this.
#Aquarium #Background Coating What do we coat it in? This answer comes up everywhere, some use cement but then you have to leave it in the #fish tank for and month for the lime to leak out and consistent water changes. I have read about lockcrete but only available in the USA, some just paint over the top but not great. SO!....my solution on this after again lots of reading and research..The answer.... #Tank Slurry! Used for coating internal #tanks and ok for human water consumption.
Original rotten old deck, overgrown waste tip, slimy stained wall etc. We used thoroughseal (waterproof tanking slurry) on the wall. Stone wall feature made from old pond surround, planted with succulents, hebe, alpines and agave.
