The rocks are good ol fashioned BC Blue Slate. These were harvested locally and I purchased them for $0.24 per pound. There is 152 pounds of slate in there.

I have used this slate 2 other aquariums before this one without any problems (it does raise the Ph a little, but not too bad). Even sensitive fish havent had any trouble with the stuff.

You can buy slate at most aggregate dealers or garden suppliers.
