Thank you! Yes, these have the slate. Which presents a problem if they leak. Silicone does not stick to slate. These were made with a tar like substance.I lucked out on fixing the five gallon with just plain hot water.

I think maybe you might be talking about the one with the reddish tinge that looks like little palm trees? If so that is mermaid weed. Not an easy keeper, and a bit tough to find.

That's awesome! I really like the way the lighter colored sand looks.

Are you planning on keeping any interesting critters in your riparium other than your betta? I have the bare bones of one and some plants to use in it, but from what I read most of the animals I would like to keep in there would happily climb out and dry up on the floor (shrimp, crabs, etc). Maybe I need to DIY a taller screen enclosure to sit on top?
