I was thinking on getting a piece of a brick and try to make a cave out of it. Could I sand it down so its not rough anymore? Or would this just be a waste of time?

Probably be a waste, jmo. I mean, the brick will remain rough in my experince. Even if you get it smooth, they tend to erode in tanks.

Well shoot. I was trying to be clever. Lol. Oh well. Maybe something I could coat it in? Trying to think of neat things to use for caves.....

Coconut moss caves, stacked slate, PVC coated in silicone and rolled in gravel/sand oh how the list goes on.

I like the coconut moss cave idea a lot. I just don't want the PVC or anything like that. I'm hoping to get this rustic looking bell decoration that is actually meant for aquariums and I just am going for a certain look. Lol

My favorite is taking flower pots and using them i just posted a pic of a 5 gallon tank ive been working on and they look so cute. And you can get some bigger ones and break them and sand down the edges and what not. Plue get something like christmass mostt a little pot and fishing string. Tie the moss to the pot and it will look like a natural cave. or go out find some rocks that are safe for the aquarium and glue them together with proper aquarium glue. then you can make the cave look as you please.
