I just stacked them up, and used some bricks to support them underneath inside the container. You can't see the bricks unless you really look.
Okay I'm stupid, so.. just a pump going to the top and cascading down via slates? Did you just piecemeal everything together or did you do anything special?

Nope, just stacked them up. It's pretty sturdy. If you stagger the slate pieces and arrange them right it comes out pretty solid.

Swordtails already had fry in the pond. Temps are dropping so i threw a couple of small heaters in to keep the water temperature from getting too cold.
