Dear Carolyn;
	This fish box trough was discussed a couple years ago on an 
alpine email group. I tried this too. I used a grape box instead. 
Also styrofoam and painted it with a couple thick coats of masonry or 
concrete paint in a neutral color. (see-…  )

	The box is lighter in weight but not as natural looking as 
hypertufa and considerably less structurally sound. I made a 
hypertufa trough to the same dimensions as my fish-box trough and the 
former is way nicer in all ways.

	Fish Box troughs are 'quick and dirty', but having made the 
leap to hypertufa , I won't make more.

	Best		Jim W.
