Stores that sell driftwood in the Los Angeles area?


Does anyone know any stores that sell driftwood? I know that there's one on West Sunset (Sunset Tropical Fish Pets & Supplies, according to the sign I can see on Google Map) that sells some. And there was one on Vermont and Lexington that had some, but it had a fire recently, unfortunately.

Other than those two stores, I can't remember ever seeing one that had driftwood. Does anyone know any others?

EDIT: The driftwood I'm looking for is for a small 1.75 gallon Petco brand kritter keeper, 11.75" long, 7.75" deep, 6.75" tall.

There's a few in the Valley, if you're ever out this way. I know Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica has nice ones. There's another one on Sepulveda south of LAX that I seem to remember as having good ones too, I just can't remember the name.

Nature Aquarium? Do you know the address of that place? I know there's one in Santa Monica that I like to go to, but I think that one was called Yo's Aquarium or something along those lines. I'm gonna go ahead and try finding it by google map-walking (that's how I find the street where the store I mentioned in the first post is, since I only know how to get there). Thank you. :v

EDIT: Never mind. It's on the other end of Santa Monica. It's around 17 miles away from my house. Which might require my persuasion skills to be a little higher.

No problem. 2836 Santa Monica Blvd. I think it's off of Yale.

Pretty close to Downtown is pretty much the best way to describe it. I live in South LA but I travel to the Echo Park area often.

Oh ok. Sorry, I'm not that familiar with any stores around there. But there's gotta be some in Koreatown, Chinatown and Little Tokyo that sell driftwood I'm guessing. Good luck!

Well that's too bad. Thank you. I just kinda wish Petco sold driftwood, since that happens to be the closest pet store I have around here...

Look in their reptile section, I've noticed a lot of Petcos have recently moved their mopani from the fish section to around where the lizard/frog stuff is.

... For some reason I never thought to look in the reptile section. Which is even funnier considering the fact that the first time I ever bought driftwood was for a terrarium.

I really like Oranda Aquarium on La Brea and Beverly. It's definitely overpriced, but their fish are always healthy and they do have some nice looking wood.

If you want more, I got some at Medusa, which I believe is on Sawtelle in W. LA. Mostly reptile store with a ton of salt water coral, but not great fish conditions. Still, they have a bunch of cool wood of different types.

Oranda Aquarium doesn't seemtoo far away, so I might be able to try that one someday. Medusa seems to be a little further out, so I'm not sure about that one.

Found myself a piece that fits into the tank. Not the greatest looking piece, but I think it'll work. :v
