Yeah, I'd never seen a tank like it before, but it seems they were produced in the 70-80's. The edges of the slate were sealed with some sort of tar stuff, since apparently silicone didn't/doesn't stick to slate. The tar was long gone by time I got it, and I was planning on having to add glass over the slate, but that seems like an awful lot of work now, hahaha.

And thanks for that, I'll be checking that place out.
