stevenjohn21 I have plenty of those drainage rocks available if anyone wants them, they look great piled up on black sand like the above poster has shown .

davidst Just my 2 cents.
These are granite rocks I picked up from a drainage area in Roswell.

Could you post some pics of your dragon stones, and price estimates for them?

Or just offer a general pricing on $ per lb?

Overgrowth Unfortunately the ADA website wasn't working for some reason, so I accidentally got seiryu stones on evilbay. Only then did I remember that they raise GH and KH. -face palm-

Lace rock leaches, is good for African Cichlids, but not for softwater fish.

mstamper Hmmmm?, Lake Lanier Rocks. That might be an idea. Ofcourse I would not know how I came by them.

stevenjohn21 I stumbleed across some great looking rocks last week when i was "walking the dog" AKA fishing !
Where the dam meets lake lanier (the 1st parking area) before you see the river on your left handside, there are some great looking rocks with great cuts,grooves and veins on all size rocks....... somehow they managed to "jump" inside the trunk of the car !

ChadRamsey wow, nice. post pics here when you get them in.

Overgrowth Yep, I just decided to order off the ADA site. I'm getting Yamaya stone because it's the cheapest

ChadRamsey i have searched and searched and have come up with nada!!!

Us east coasters can only order online and have it shipped.

mstamper I forgot that I posted that question. Still have not gotten an answer to that question. I am thinking about looking up bonsai nursery's and see if they have any sort of rock that would work.
I just recently read that the igwamui traditional rock raised ph and GH and if one is keeping shrimp that is not always desirable. I might look into lava rock or lace rock which is supposed to be inert in that regard and according to a recent article in tropical fish magazine written by Amano using alternative rock like lava rock is an acceptable choice.

Good luck to us both in finding these rocks.
