Lava Rocks

Hey,

Does anyone know where I can find some nice lava rocks for scaping a 20g long? I know this is Hawaii, but I can't find any for the life of me. Thanks

You can collect some lava rocks from state lands, you'll need a permit. Call DLNR, Divison of Forestry and Wildlife and get the permit (I think it's free) they should be able provide some suggest some places where can collect. (808) 973-9778
