Prevent rock-slides in your reef aquarium – this construction epoxy is designed specifically for bonding rocks and corals in a reef aquarium and cures underwater to the colour of coralline algae so that it is hardly noticeable.
Aquascape is a two-part epoxy putty that has been specially developed by D-D for use in salt water and freshwater aquariums and other underwater applications.
In the marine aquarium it is ideal for bonding together live rock to form complicated structures and to avoid rock falls caused by turbo snails, sea urchins and strong current flow. It is used for attaching coral frags to rocks or mounting plates and for creating clam bases to prevent them being attacked and ultimately killed by bristle worms.
In addition it can be used to repair leaky pipe work, broken equipment or for bonding items to the aquarium glass.
Aquascape is also available in a rock grey colour for freshwater tanks and ponds or to blend with the coralline epoxy to form a mottled finish.
-ASMP002 – Coralline Algae Colour – for marine and reef aquariums.
-ASMP003 – Slate Grey Colour – for freshwater aquariums and ponds.
-Note that both colours can be used in either environment and can also be mixed together creating a mottled effect.

Applications for Aquascape in a Marine Aquarium
Coral Fragging and Propogation
Aquascape is ideal for working with coral frags and can be used to fix corals to frag bases or direct to rock and is easily overgrown by corals or coralline algae.
If positioning large corals we would suggest that you apply the Aquascape to the coral and splash it around in a container of tank water to remove any residues before pushing into position.
Note: It is necessary to support heavy rocks, corals and overhangs until the putty sets.
Clams are very susceptible to attack by bristle worms, especially when positioned on a sandy or gravel substrate. If you have had clams die in the past then this is probably why as the worms attack the base of the clam at night and slowly eat it from the inside.
If an Aquascape base shaped to the individual clam before positioning on the base inside the aquarium, the clam will glue itself onto the Aquascape base and protect itself against any attack.
Snails, fish and urchins can cause movement and overturn rocks and corals in the aquarium therefore we always recommend that rock structures and corals are always bonded together to prevent rockslides damage or disturbance to the system.
Blobs of Aquascape can also be used to create feet on the base of the foundation rocks for increased stability and to lift the rock off the substrate thus preventing anoxic areas from developing.
