andrewq You should check out this website. Creaturewood.com. All wood products are natural and untreated. They do not contain any pesticides, varnishes or paints of any kind. They are 75% of the cost of everybody else. They do leak tanins, so normal boiling is recommended. Ive been searching for driftwood for about a week now. Stumbled on this website yesterday

Don't know off hand but I did get some rocks for my 10g and it came out to $4

fplata Some beautiful stuff.

Lia Here are pieces we collected while fishing few months ago.

I made sure they had no animals,etc in them for month than put them with my cichlids outside in rubbermaid water tanks.

We got a 55 and 75 worth of driftwood, gave lots of it away.

Lia The Miami fish farm carries piles of driftwood but imagine takes time for it to sink.

MGap I have a few of those granite rocks but in a smaller tank. In my 90 gallon they just didn't fit right, they looked tiny. It would only really work out if you covered the entire bottom with them, but i don't see that working very well. I got lucky though and was able to swipe some large round river stones from the architectural design firm next door to my office.

I was going to go look around the Rickenbacker to see what I could find out there as far as driftwood goes. Im not very hopeful, but my dog likes the swim so I end up there often regardless.

What about the area around Old Cutler? has anyone tried that area out? they have all those mangroves if I remember correctly. I have no car so its tough to get out there.

fplata Yeah he is right, i have seen some gray sparkly rocks, none of them big, but there sure are some
