    I ditched the idea of making a castle out of miniature bricks and wood and mortar, because it just made a ton more sense to build it out of EPS foam, using a wood-burning tool to melt brick / stone patterns into it and then coat it with something. My questions are: 1) Is there good...

    So.....I buy alot of European dart frog books/magazines, etc, cause I like their style of vivs. On alot of tanks I see, rather than using cork, or GS/peat method, it appears they use Epoxy grout smoothed onto the sides.

    Alright, so two items I've been looking to purchase for my future build - Epoxy resin for building a background and this godlike Solacryl I've been hearing about. Problem is, I've spent hours and hours researching here and elsewhere and I'm just going to write a brief summary here and ask for...
