At Buy-Axolotls.com we do not recommend that you use Sand or Gravel in your tank. Sand and Gravel is the number one killer of Water Dragons – Axolotls because they will eat it and they will die from eating it. If you think it is safe for an Axolotl to eat sand then it must be safe for human to eat sand too. Try eating a 1/2 cup of Sand every day and lets see how long you live.

Wash the slate to remove any dust or dirt that may be on it. Then let it dry before installing it.
You can have your slate cut at a home improvement center like Home Depot or Lowes. Bring your tank with you to the home improvement center so that they can cut the slate to fit inside diameter of your tank. The best way to cut the slate is with a wet saw. Make sure that there is ¼ less than actual size. Put the cut slate in boiling water for 20 minutes to remove any bacteria, dust and dirt that may be on the slate. After the slate has cooled and is dry you need to mark the outside of the tank with a dry eraser where the two pieces meet. Then caulk the seam where the two pieces of slate meet to prevent Axolotl’s waste from going under the slate. Now caulk all four sides of the slate. Let dry for the time listed on the caulking tube before adding any water. Its better to give too much time for the caulk to dry than too little time.
