I used two glass hurricane candle shades and covered the outside in pebbles glued on with the aquarium silicone.
And while you are out there in nature, keep a look out for materials that could possibly be used as your substrate, or perhaps in combination with a bought substrate. But also notice how these materials occur in nature. The significance of this becomes apparent when the gravel and sands are finally graded and placed in the aquarium — hopefully in the same way as can be found in rivers and streams where there are rock outcroppings and some current in the flow of the water. Check the sizes of these gravels and pebbles and where they have settled and later copy this in your aquarium. If possible, rocks, stones, pebbles and sand of the same colour and type should be used when you build your aquascape. This one-ness of parent rock, stones, gravels and sands becomes a beautiful harmonising component in the outcome of the ultimate design.
Pure Water Pebbles are recommended for aquariums, ponds, terrariums, gardens, potted plants, vases, ash trays, crafts and hobbies, architectural surfaces, landscaping designs, and more! Be sure to check out all of the colors available to find the perfect gravel for your needs.
