 BTW  where  did  you  find  this  picture  ?

 plaster  of  paris  will  dissolve  in  water  and  may  alter  water  chemistry.  mseal  i  guess  is  safe  for  aquarium  use.

 Yajur,  Please  remove  this  picture.
 I  have  an  idea  for  this  aquascape.  The  aquascape  has  pasted  this  pyramid  type  structure  with  glass  and  after  that  coverd  with  moss.
 Plastic  is  not  safe  in  the  aquarium.  I  have  also  planned  in  the  past  to  make  such  a  type  of  aquascape.  My  plan  was  as  follow:
 
 1.  Take  some  branches  of  lemon  tree.  Make  the  desired  structure.  Bind  the  branches  with  fishline.
 
 2.  Dip  this  structure  in  the  water  for  20  days.  After  20  days,  clean  it.
 
 3.  Cover  it  with  moss.
 
 4.  Now  paste  this  with  the  glass  using  silicone.

 branches  of  lemon  tree??  are  you  telling  to  get  the  branch  of  live  tree..I  mean  which  is  wet??  or  should  we  dry  it  first???
 does  it  compatible  with  water???...won't  it  disturb  the  water??
 and  why  only  lemon  tree???.....does  it  work  like  a  driftwood??

 I  have  used  the  branches  of  a  live  lemon  tree  in  my  aquascape.  They  don't  disturb  water  and  also  not  harmful  for  fishes.  I  have  make  a  triangle  of  lemon  tree  branch  in  my  past  aquascape  keep  those  for  two  years.

 Make  only  a  skeleton  of  branches.
 The  open  area  will  be  cover  by  the  moss  in  a  few  months.

 Plaster  of  Paris(POP)  will  make  the  water  very  acidic,  you  should  avoid  that.  it  will  also  dissolve  in  water  so  the  basic  motive  of  putting  it  there  will  be  defeated.

 i  dont  think  a  hardened  block  of  POP  will  not  make  the  water  acidic  (  it  will  surely  make  the  water  hard  ),  i  am  not  sure  that  it  will  totally  dissolve.  just  make  a  tetrahedron  from  driftwood  twigs  like  scorpio  says  and  cover  it  with  plants.  m-seal  wet  set  can  be  used  in  aquariums,  i  had  some  that  was  in  my  tank  for  over  a  year,  no  ill  effects.

 You  can  use  mesh  to  create  the  tetrahedron  as  saumya  said.  That  way  it  will  be  easier  to  shape  it  and  attach  moss  easily  to  it.
