Iwagumi Rocks
 
Someone else in the atlanta area on this forum and I have been wondering where we could find Iwagumi rocks locally. Does anyone know? Thanks.

I would love to know that information as well.

Haha, you were that "someone else" I referenced in the OP. :biggrin:

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.

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

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

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

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 !

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

We carry lace rock at Aquarium Outfitters in Athens. It looks really nice in planted tanks.

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

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-

I have dragon stone at my shop at Priemer Aquatics. As well as a few other new types of rocks.

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

Or just offer a general pricing on $ per lb?

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