I have a few of those granite rocks but in a smaller tank. In my 90 gallon they just didn't fit right, they looked tiny. It would only really work out if you covered the entire bottom with them, but i don't see that working very well. I got lucky though and was able to swipe some large round river stones from the architectural design firm next door to my office.

I was going to go look around the Rickenbacker to see what I could find out there as far as driftwood goes. Im not very hopeful, but my dog likes the swim so I end up there often regardless.

What about the area around Old Cutler? has anyone tried that area out? they have all those mangroves if I remember correctly. I have no car so its tough to get out there.

The Miami fish farm carries piles of driftwood but imagine takes time for it to sink.

Here are pieces we collected while fishing few months ago.

I made sure they had no animals,etc in them for month than put them with my cichlids outside in rubbermaid water tanks.

We got a 55 and 75 worth of driftwood, gave lots of it away.

Looks good! Kind of weird that they don't list the price though. Have you tried any of them yet? Do you know more or less what they charge per pound? The "daisy" and "red onyx" ones look nice, I think I might stop by sometime.
