Silicone it to a piece of slate. Let it dry for 48 hours before putting it in the water. The gravel or some stones will hold it down.

Some types will sink right away due to their weight... If it floats, tie it down

attach the bottom of the piece of wood to eternite or slate with a screw, then epoxy over the screw. drill the hole into the eternite with a carbide drill bit.

I ended up just trying some rocks onto the bottom with cotton hopefully but the time the cotton breaks down it will stay down

added some java moss too... looks good:c3:
