The first three rank much higher than the others. If you can manage to get to those 3 there is a fantastic selection of rock and gravel.
Morgan's Masonry, San Ramon and Antioch- Plenty of gravel, lots of rock the right size to call boulders in the aquarium. LOTS of nice stuff.
LH Voss, Dublin- Good selection of unusual rocks.
Mount Diablo Landscape, Concord- Best selection of unusual rocks, often carries thin black slate for backgrounds and a lot more.
Diamond K, Lafayette- Better for large landscape boulders, but if you are anywhere near, go see it. Lower on my list, though for aquariums.
Brickyard, Concord. Has graded sand in bags. Lapis Lustre brand, a sort of golden and silvery sand in different sizes. Occasionally has interesting rocks.
Near Brickyard are a couple of swimming pool suppliers for pool filter sand.
There are a couple of rock yards in Brentwood, if you are going out that far, but mostly they are more concrete suppliers, not decorative rock.
MacAlvey's Nursery, Martinez. Small selection, but if you are driving by it, worth a stop.

I called Dolphin Pet Village a while ago for endlers, the guy took all my information down because they didn't have any in stock so someone could call me when they got some in. I thought this was excellent service, but I haven't gotten a call back and its been over a month. I am pretty sure they have gotten a pair by now...
Diana what stores are good for rocks? I might be interested in a rock scape with wood, though it may have to wait.
I'm looking forwards to meeting the people that have been in the club for a while. It will be awesome to talk about tanks and plants with other people.

|kingmonroe||I like Neptune's, too. Great fish and plant selection. Dolphin Pet Village has a bigger selection of equipment, but their staff wasn't too knowledgeable about the Walstad Method. Wide variety of fish and plants, too. I went to Aquatic Life in Sunnyvale, but not many plants. Not a high turn around rate on the fish either so selection is feast or famine. I haven't been to King Aquarium, yet. But I hear it is a good place. Petco and Petsmart have some plants and the more popular fish, but good luck finding good help. Oh and they don't have sales or discounts for multiples on plants. I would like to go to AFA in SF, though. Heard a lot of nice things.|

Albany is a good store for plants and fish. They quarantine the fish before sale.
Looking forward to meeting all the new members.
Up in my area (October meeting location) the fish stores are not all that great.
There are several stores that are great for rocks, though!
|10-02-2012 12:57 AM|
They have a sweet staff as well, really informative and they have nice display tanks. Have you seen the massive anubias in one of their plant tanks?
I know on AFA's website their plants are a bit cheaper as well as their Aquasoil, so I may have to plan a trip there sometime. I here all this hype, even people out of state, about it so why not go? And I also want to see some of the rarer plants.

|speedie408||You want some of the rarer plants, AFA is cool. Neptunes have come a long way and they're the best in the South Bay atm.|
|10-02-2012 12:12 AM|
Alright thanks! I hope they have a meet in the South Bay, I would be so much closer.
What aquarium shop is your favorite in the Bay? I have only been to Neptune, but I try to go frequently. I want to at least go to AFA.
|10-02-2012 12:03 AM|
Santa Clara. I got prior obligations so I won't make it to the Oct meet. Maybe if the Nov meet is in the South Bay again, I'll hit it up.
Have fun! SFBAAPS meets are AWESOME!
|10-02-2012 12:00 AM|
I wouldn't either lol, WAY too far! I am going to Octobers because the fish room really does sound interesting so why not if I can?
What part of the Bay are you in? If you don't mind.
