Not to high jack the thread but you can get great manzanita/rocks/etc... On the for sale section on this forum. I got some manzanita from plantbrain this week and it is awesome. Just type his username in the "search this forum" under the for sale thread and you will see the thread pics of all different sizes and prices. There are also some people selling cool rocks, just have to search because the threads get back a few pages until they are reported/bumped.

Understandable, but these prices for manzanita are cheaper than what people sell on the S&S... and the shipping is cheaper too

Perfect for the 10g I'll be setting up soon!!! I actually saw that saveoncrafts had manzanita a few months back but I figured it was treated with chemicals... Great to know it's not!!

That saveoncrafts sure does not like explorer as crashed it every time visited.
Even with a search still the same there.
But the second one looked good.

Do most craft stores carry branches? (Like hobby lobby or michaels?)

They might, but you also got to make sure they aren't chemically cleaned. If they are, then don't put it in your tank. These 2 sites that I listed aren't

Thanks for this thread, I just ordered from saveoncrafts, two of the 18-24" sanded branches for $27 shipped.

I'm going to redo my algae farm and want all new hard scape, great deal!

Just got two of the 18"-24" pieces from saveoncrafts. They are pretty killer looking. For the price I wasn't expecting pieces this nice. I'll try and post a couple pics later tonight.
