Has anyone used Mor-flexx in a viv? It is a mortar caulk that looks like grout but feels like rubber. The local home improvement had a display with grouth that had been replaced on some bricks and the color (the grey was the one I saw) was very cool. It would look very good to use for synthetic rocks on a GS background. They also come in beige, grey,pewter,light grey,khaki ,pecan, and white.
I am not knowledgable enough regarding chemistry to know if the ingredients would be safe.
Here is a link to the manufacturer site...
Mor-Flexx - Looks like mortar. Stretches like rubber.

Thanks,

looks like some neat stuff... what's the price per bottle of this?

only thing that concerns me is.

"Please Note:
Do not use on concrete less than 6 months old (the concrete is not fully cured), in areas of water submersion, where frequent or prolonged puddling occurs, in areas of high foot or vehicle traffic or areas where hydrostatic resistance is wanted."

don't know if that counts as "frequent misting" lol. but it would nix any sort of water feature capabilities or drip wall. Also saw the MSDS on it, but i'm not familiar w/ all the chemicals to make any call on th at. maybe some of th e Gurus will chime in.

Price is the same as Caulk. Roughly $5.00 tube. Same size tube as caulk as well.
The "water" issue, I guess, may be a problem. Too bad the color was very nice!

This means Vivariums. Working at 85% humidity IS submersion I would avoid this stuff. You should also check the MSDS on this. It contains Ethylene Glycol.
Thats car Antifreeze. Not a good product for frogs.
To get a similar effect, use 100% silicone (not caulk), and cover it with rock dust.
