Very cool!
Didn't you have to rinse the cement, like with epoxiresin?
Good job. :) :) :)

Yes, otherwise it will raise the pH?
Since there's no water in the tank, though, maybe that's still coming :)

It is looking very good, though!

Yes it must be thoroughly rinsed. Since i didnt want to keep my fish out of the tank the 3 to 4 days it would take i rinsed and soaked it in my spare shower. Water is free at my apartment so i just ran the shower on it for 3 days straight lol and made sure to rotate them and move the sower head around so everything got thoroughly rinsed the background was jet black when i started so as u can see it washed alot of stuff out that otherwise would have been in my tank. But a ph test will be the first thing i do
