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

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.

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.
