hunterlook: It is exactly that-slate. Find a piece and give it a whack with a hammer. Any old untreated piece will do

puopg: When life hands you lemons-add tequila and salt.

These guys are a bucket of laughs. They're now sieging the betta tank. The betta has been challenging each one in turn for hours.

Here comes Peter Cottontail...



...riding on his turtle shell...



...hippety hoppety...



...algae's gone away!



Just in time for Easter, I rearranged the scape. Algae is almost all gone due to Darkcobra's one two punch! With Spring approaching I should be pulling out the lawnmower soon!

beautiful tank, Stef. It really is. I love the scaping and the "path" that you've created. Peter Rabbit is quite happy

Glad you guys battled the algae!!

Thank you, Jiinx!
It's so discouraging watching something you spend time on, and take a bit of pride in, slowly turning into something that looks like the bowels of a cave. I was waiting for mushrooms to sprout.
A little patience (on my end) and perseverance (DarkCobra) pays off.

I found Peter Rabbit in a Thrifty store, and thought his expression and the fact he was riding a turtle fitting for this Easter theme

I'm sure it's different for other people but some words in posts get turned into a hyperlink for an Ad and in your post, on my screen, it was "the bowels" haha, got a kick out of that one.

Waz it "Plop Plop, Fizz Fizz"?
I don't think that's built into this site-I think it's your computer.

Thank You, Chaos!
The army men came, saw, and conquered.
I need to keep them on standby just in case.
They are on vacation leave, in a nice saltwater tank somewhere in Tahiti.

Loving this thread and your sense of humor Stef. Keep it up.
I may try the slate path idea on my Fluval Edge 12 gallon multi tank as long as I can move some of the shells out of the way.

The paths are easy to maintain once you establish a ...er...pathway?
The only problem I encountered was it seemed to attract debris (leaves, fish poo, substrate) like a magnet- just like an outside sidewalk. I solved the problem by gently "leaf blowing" it with a turkey baster, just like you would a walkway.
Easy-Peasy.

I'm not too proud to admit that I plagiarize good ideas. The pathway and arbor will appear at sometime in one of my tanks.

Halloween is here, and wanted to share "Weird Scenes Inside The Fry Tank".









May your Halloweenie be glowing
