does anyone know where to get decent rock for cave building? I haven't found anything in Lowes or Wal-mart... At this rate I may just have to get flower pots or something.. I found these pots that are white, rouched and look sorta roman, at lowes. I'm starting to wonder if I should just get those and put them into my tank (current tank pic below). What do you guys think 3-4 loaches would appreciate most in a 45G tall tank decoration-wise? I know they like a lot of hiding places but any suggestions on what to make/buy and where I can find them? Thanks

Oh yeah... if anyone has experience as to what would be best... how many weather loaches should I have in this tank? thanks!

well I just thought of an idea.. I know plants won't very well stick down into the substrate.. so i am going to strip the plant of leaves up to about an inch or two from the bottom, and silicon the bare end to a suction cup to stick to the bottom. I definately like the plant on the left.. especially with the sand that I have... think I will get another one of those to put into the tank. Now all I need to do is find rocks to silicon caves into! Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

I'm surprised Lowes doesn't have any slate. What about a local building supply place? Just make sure the slate isn't treated with anything and it should be fine.

yeah okay i know this may not be that bright, but please remind me... I saw texas holey rock.. it is perfect for these guys!... but of course there's a downfall. Supposedly laoches can take a pretty varied pH, btu I want them comfortable and happy. Would gettng Texas Holey Rock be that bad of an idea... its known for raising or buffering pH. I just love all of those holes and the such.. would make great nooks and hiding places for the little buggers!

what do you guys think of me getting 3 dojo loaches, and possibly adding like 6 tiger barbs or so in the tank as well to take up SOME room in the top of the 45G tall tank? If not the barbs any other suggestions?
