Find a landscaping company or a commercial greenhouse that sells landscaping items. It is the least expensive way to purchase some really nice items. Make sure to rinse them very well as you dont know what environment they have been kept until you purchased them.

Good Luck.

I get my rocks from this place:

http://www.bedrockmaterial.com/bould.html

It's in West Babylon on Long Island near where I live. If you're in the city it's a bit of a travel for you and I'm sure there are places closer to you. They use to have the prices on their website but they're not there anymore. Either way all the rocks are 22 cents a pound except lava and lace rock which are 45 cents a pound (because they're lighter). Last time I was there I got 66 pounds of red lava rock for my 55g mbuna tank for like $30 bucks. They have flat stones there too which are also pretty cheap.

Because we have a 'Reviews' section that includes opinions on retailers, we ask that you take advantage of this resource when possible. We feel that it is better for all who use the site to have a structured place to conduct reviews. Reviews on a discussion board quickly become buried and it is inevitable that your input will not be seen next time, or the time after that. This is not the case with the reviews section. In addition, it is easy to compare retailers and products there. Thank you for your consideration.

if you have a specific retailer PM it to the OP.
