Visiting Austin
I'm in Austin on a business trip. Are there any good shops around for picking through hardscape materials?

Aquatech has some nice stuff. I'd check it out.

+1 on Aquatek, they usually have full bins under the rows of tanks. Its off Burnet Rd.

Went to aquatek yesterday for the first time. gotta say i was impressed on most levels. I say most cause they wouldnt sell me thier entire plant display! The ginger knows her s#it which is such a change from most experiences.

I love aquatech! We took home a 12 inch synpsilum about a week ago for our 180 :)

If your interested in another place Aquadome in south Austin is alright not great. They have a huge selection of livestock through, FW and SW. Their plants selection is very lacking but they are working on it.

Thanks for the reccomendations. I'm mainly interested in hardscape materials; stones, wood, etc.

aquatech has good prices on driftwood aquadome does not.

I know this is a bit late for your trip, but there is also Rivers & Reefs on S 1st.
Lots of rock, some driftwood. Some plants, not the widest selection, but they're all true aquatics, not bog plants posing as true water.
