Driftwood question

Where can I buy driftwood online? No where local carries any. I'm looking for more of a WYSIWYG kind of deal but with good prices and low shipping costs. I've looked at one particular sponsor that has nice driftwood but the shipping costs are the same price as the wood itself or double or more I can't see paying 50-150$ just for shipping

What kind of wood are you looking for? I bought some nice Manzanita off of http://www.bloomsandbranches.com/. They even threw in an extra branch for me.

I'm not really sure just whatever will provide interesting shapes and not all blocky looking and not tint my water much if any

Look in the for sale forums, you will get better prices here anyways.

There is a site called saveoncrafts.com that has some good prices. I just ordered a case of grapewood sticks (10-12 inches each) for my small tanks from bloomsandbranches.com. It was $22 and free shipping. Lots of sales on right now. drsfostersmith.com has some decent prices on driftwood and if you order $49 worth of stuff, shipping is free. Good incentive to stock up on tank stuff.

Don't forget you have to get sand blasted and fully dried wood, or else it will rot it your tank (I learned that the hard way).
