Slate stone cave

Does anyone know where to get slate for rock fixtures

When you buy tanks, just to sell them for more money then use that extra cash for your own fish.....You have a problem!

Usually a home gardening store carries slate ... among other rocks.

+1 Our Lowes has slate and at a MUCH lower cost than the lfs's. Look for it in the gardening section where they keep flagstones. The pieces are bigger but you can either cut them with a wet saw or use a hammer and chisel to break them apart to size. (You could try your luck and just drop them but that could get expensive)
Why do I love fish? Because every time I stare into the little world I have created for them, every problem I have just floats away....
