    So here's the story, It seems like there are many conflicting opinions on what rocks are "safe for aquarium". in the research I've done it seems that rocks that dissolve in acid (bicarbonates) and tht can be etched with a stainless steel knife are bad. However, what if a rock is just able to be...

    So I've got several pieces of driftwood I've collected for my tank. They're stumps mostly, so I'd like to give them a sturdy base for when I do my rescape. In the past I've just stuck with tying/siliconing rocks to driftwood but I'd rather just go with slate pieces on the bottom. Does anyone...

    I don't know if I was just lucky or all the research paid off (perhaps both?) I just finished my swapping of gravel to Black Diamond sand. Here's what I have learned. 1. Rinse! I rinsed all my sand the week-end before the swap. About 3 cups at a time in a mixing bowl. Used thick yellow...

    I'm doing a planted tank thats symmetrical in my 60 gallon aquarium and so here's the mother truffin' plan: So I have 5"-12" long driftwood pieces most are elongated and some are irregular shaped, I'm going to stick the elongated ones on the side of my tank, next I have an artificial log where...

    So a while ago I picked up some damaged slate tiles from Lowes for like.. $2 or something. Yesterday, finally, we smashed them up and attempted to make something out of them. We have a 10 gal that we are hardscaping and replanting, and decided to make a little cave for whatever we put in there...

    Does anyone have any experience with the new "micro-thin stone veneer" products? From what I've been able to find, they basically pour a layer of resin onto a flat piece of slate, then peel it up to get the veneer. So the product consists of actual stone and plastic/epoxy/polyester, which...

    So here she is, one of the ugliest! I now have about half of the blue gravel removed, but it's a little stressful getting rid of it all. If that slate wall (about 2 inches thick) is sitting on a single piece of gravel, then the entire weight of the slate will be on a very small surface area, and...
