Waterweld, can definitely get expensive. They were much cheaper around 5-6 years ago

I have also used the stuff Marco rocks offers

Ive also used the marcorocks mortar, great stuff! Can do any size/shape you want and once it hardens it is very strong and secure.

I bought about 5 feet of 1/2 inch acrylic rid from canal plastics for about 6 dollars each. I'm looking to do my next aquascape right this time

I used rods, jb weld, glue and zip ties.. But I used them to hold together then used jb weld over everything again. I just want to make it even stronger, I'll either use this or jb weld.. A little over kill but I prefer that
