I purchase my rocks from lawn/landscaping stores in my area.
Recently re -did my 80 gal tank and wanted some dark colored ,smooth rocks for hard scaping.
Found some large smooth riverstones black/grey in color at local landscaping store cheap, and found some smaller black Mexican river stones in bag's for around four or five bucks at Hobby lobby,and Walmart in hobby craft isle.
my sister say's they have the smaller Mexican river stones at Dollar Tree also but I have not been there to see.
I also buy foam from Walmart for my filter's.
Only place I don't try and save $$ is with fish food's/filtration.
