Slate? Locally? cheap?
Doing some aquascaping... Need a few chunks of slate. Does anyone here in Central Indiana know of hobby or crafts stores that have it? Hobby lobby has some slate chalk boards that I could r-purpose, but I would rather snag it from a more natural source...
Thanks! A little more than I was thinking. Just a few little peices, enough for a small shelf/cave in a tank. We have a place that sells those up in Anderson, were I am, but I was thinking of something thinner. More like black board type... Maybe I am thinking to specifically.
Im thinking of snagging a peice from lowes, they have slate tiles the color that I want and cheap. I can split and shatter them to look natural. Any suggestions of cleaning them to make sure that there is nothing nasty and toxic on them?
I ended up going to lowes. They had 6x6 tile for under a buck a peice. They had 12x12 but i would have had to buy the whole box. I bought 5 6x6 tile, and I spilt them, so I had plenty! Not a good pic, I should have taken it from a better angle. It will look cool when all the plants grow in.
