Congressional in Rockville, MD has a decent selection of rocks and some driftwood. Pristine Aquariums in Alexandria, VA has a decent amount of rocks/driftwood

I second Pristine on their selection of driftwood, they have a giant preformed pond by their door filled with nice malaysian (I think) driftwood - they charge by the pound $4.??/pound. I have a couple pieces in my tank.

Congressional has the most diverse selection of rocks in the area IMO.

House of Tropicals has big selections of all.

Thanks. House of tropicals is lacking in driftwood supply lately. They have plenty of rocks though. I'll have to check out the other stores you mentioned.

congressional has a decent selection but I will never buy form there because they sell those dyed fish and they must NEVER clean their tanks bcuz the freshwater ones have tons of dead fish in them. I think I counted 10 dead ones in a roughly 20 gal. NASTY.

That's horrible. That's why I stay away from the big chain companies.

That sucks. I just got back from Colorado and was contemplating whether to go up there or not.
