Thanks for having us noobs! (McKena and Manny.) Had a great time, and very appreciative of all the new plants for my tanks. Hopefully will have more than cookies to contribute next time! 🙂

Nice meeting at a nice place, loved your planted tanks. Somebody was talking about something they used to soak PVC in so it can be colored and not peel off. Anybody know what that was and where to get it Also, what type of coloring material is best to use after soaking.

The solvent mentioned was MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone). Can't help with the dye.

Steve,

Here is one way of dying PVC. They actually use clear pvc cleaner as the solvent. I found another site that uses straight MEK and that is what I was talking about yesterday and what I will be sharing at the DIY meeting in September.
