I found Quickcrete concrete bonding adhesive at Home Depot. Looks to ba a perfect substitute for Flevopol, since that's not available in the US. I'm building a new 10G vert and it should work much better than the silicone/coco procedure. It's also water resistant so moisture won't seep through or behind. I'll be sure to take construction photos and compare the difference when finished.

I've played with it a bit as well and it's not bad. I'm very picky though and haven't produced anything I really liked, but I blame that completely on myself, not the product.

Yeah, I started working with a 30 gallon tank that was in less than mint shape and worked sections at a time letting each dry first and then trying to solve what I didn't like about the previos.

I would, but this viv i am working on is 25% water section, and the concrete primer will be underwater in some parts. I hope it will do ok through that!

Now here's the real question. Is the concrete bonding adhesive water proof after it dries or should I have got the acrylic concrete mix?

cement in mixture and sika in the states?

Hi!

In sweden, the closest to Flevopol is Sika and there product Sikacem830, maybe you have something like that over there?

I made my first sikatank about a year ago and now i have learned a lot =)
First of all, dont only use soil, sika and water.. its to short fibers, so i doensnt hold togeheter as good as i want..

Now i have made 3 new tanks, with a little bit differnt blend, i use cocoshumus, cocochips, soil, sand, just a little cement, water and sikacem830 :idea:

Have just started to decorate the new tanks and the new mix, its MUCH better then the first mix, holding up real good and i think the plants and mosses will love it! :lol:

have some mixed pictures at:
