Looking for XXXL Seiryu Stone

2620 11
I live in the US and I am having a hard time finding a show piece or two of Seiryu Stone for an Aquascape. I am hoping to get my hands on one if anyone has an leads or knows someone trying to sell any. I’d prefer pieces over 20 inches for consideration. Any help is appreciated !

I ran into this when I planned my tank. Unfortunately, Sieryu doesn't really come in large sizes. Your best bet is to contact some of the people you find online selling it, and ask them to keep their eyes out for a larger piece or two.

Your best bet is to glue together a few pieces. You can find a lot of guides online.

Not sure where are you located but in Houston, there are a few stores with nice pieces. Online you can try the following:

I thought so too! No one confirmed that they actually bought any so I don't know how large they are. I actually posted the wrong link too(I fixed it). For the larger 10-15".
I'm going to order a package each of the large dragon stone and seiryu stones.Hopefully they include some nice pieces, but if they don’t it is easy enough to return them to Lowe’s after I pick them up. Their dragon stone is also supposed to be 10-15”. Worth the shot for the price.

They have three sizes for each of the stone types it looks like.

Takes about two weeks for store pickup. I’ll update then!

I'm excited and I'm not even the one getting them! You can even pickup some muriatic acid while you're there. LOL Are you planning to acid wash them? I was never really big on Seiryu until my buddy got some for his setup and acid washed them. I was blown away, they look TOTALLY different.

Unfortunately I did not. I was able to find a very large selection of okho stone at one of my LFS and picked from that batch. Paid $2.49/lb so not nearly as cheap as the Lowes offering. I'll probably be getting some smaller lava rock from Lowes (basically firepit rocks) to build up depth in the back of my scape and filling black diamond blasting sand around it.
