Does anyone know where to get epiweb in the united states? I have found many websites but, they all seem to be in a different language. The one website I liked was from the creators of Epiweb. The only problem with this is that they don't sell to consumers they only sell to vendors. All the vendors I've looked at don't have what I believe I am looking for. I really like the way Marty did his floor level in his http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/members-frogs-vivariums/35695-90-gallon-re-build-pic-heavy.html post. It appears to be like 4 or 5 inch thick slabs, that is what I am looking for. So if anyone knows where to find 4-5 inch slabs of epiweb, any info on where or how to get some would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the quick reply! That is the stuff, the only problem I seem to be having is its thickness. That stuff says it is only an inch thick. Do you know if they make it like 4-5 inches thick?

you could always stack it or even contact ray on the availability. He responds to emails rather quickly and is always helpful

I ordered a 45x57 inch piece from Ray. I am using it as a biological filtration method in a paludarium I am building and will be posting shortly. I will further explain in the build thread.

P.s. I didn't really think it was that hard to cut...I used an old kitchen knife that I also use to trim my foam backgrounds. ;)

I was also looking to replace the false bottom method. So I needed something tough enough to hold up to the weight of the land mass so it wouldnt eventually compress and be under water. Also going for the "true" paludarium with no real seperation between land and water, and hoping to be able to plant a few plants in the land sections with great rooting potential. I am very pleased with how it is coming out. It is a 56 column tank that will be getting drilled and sumped, using a velocity t1 return pump to power the water feature the water flow and the drip wall. Also has an over the back inlet for a fogger. Originally planning this tank for darts but decided to expand my mossy frog collection and do a paludarium instead. :)

I think Marty did something similar in his corner tank. He used cut up sections of EcoWeb as a drainage layer. ($$$)

I bought the largest sheet Ray sells and only ended up using half of it to cover about 95% of the background on a 92 gallon corner tank.

I used a bread knife to cut mine, it worked really well - much better than the surgical shears I tried using (the kind that can cut through a penny).

I got the idea from Martys 90 gallon, I love that tank. The only difference is mine will be 100% ecoweb. The knife I use is a steak knife. Works very well.
