    Where to get hardscape?

    I'm looking for possible manzanita and/or some nice rocks. Are there any good places to find these? Any landscape supply places worth checking out?

    I got my rocks at a local landscaping place. Just Google landscaping and you'll find some near you. There's a place off the 605 called Strictly Fish that has a nice assortment of rocks and wood.

    Sent from a Galaxy S5 far far away.

    I have some various sized lava rocks if you're interested. Small, medium, and just a few large.

    Thanks. I'll probably google landscaping and just browse around.

    No thanks Tyrone, currently looking for something different from lava rocks.

    Do a search on Craigslist under ADA. There is a post with a bunch of driftwood for sale (along with ADA Aquasoil and other stuff). I believe they are in the SGV.

    Place for hardscape in our area. south coast supply(bulk buy, not idael for aquariums), strictly fish(limited selection over priced), age of aquariums (horrible selection, over priced) nautilus(so so selection, middle of the road priced), atlantic tropical (so so selection, cost effective), tongs(so so selection, over priced), hong kong tropical fish (poor selection, okay prices sometimes) Places you would need to drive far to go to... best option hands down would be CK fish world, although fish.com (franks store) may have some great deals, also there is a meeting this weekend at pet supreme, I'm sure they carry some decent hardscape options and will most likely have a sale for the meeting. Hope this helps.

    I was at CK FIsh World last week looking for seiryu stone and they did have a big box of it but it looked pretty bad. No interesting shapes or colors (just light grey) Is it not possible to find blue seiryu anymore? Or at least some that has the streaks of white in it?

    I bought some random pieces off amazon and they were kinda disappointing (and expensive)

    I believe buce plants has the darker stone as well as nature aquarium and AFA[. Personally I like the grey over the darker.

    CK is a little expensive for what they have to offer.

    This company sells for 1 dollar a pound

    I recently bought all my hardscape from this buyer. He has a storage unit in Alhambra full of hardscape materials and general supplies. He was easy to work with and willing to negotiate on prices. You can also find him on eBay and planted tank.

    You have to clean the rocks or do an acid dip (don't do this without proper precautions and knowledge of the process. There are youtube videos on how to). Otherwise they all look the same.
    Please don't quote my posts it is unnecessary , I will still read the thread without the extra "you have been quoted on SCAPE" notification email.

    Not sure if it's a good deal but saw that the west elm has some manzanita branches on clearance for $15:
