I dont know if you all have found this to be true, but finding good rocks for use in aquariums can be difficult and expensive.

However, Pete Rose Landscaping is located at 9207 Old Staples Mill Rd , and it was a rock paradise.

They have piles and piles of different kinds of rocks that you can sort through, many of them look like they were made for aquarium use, and best of all, they sell for about $0.40/pound. Dirt cheap!

Enjoy!

That is my favorite place. The best part is that they don't even look twice if you say you're picking up rocks for an aquarium. They are helpful and inexpensive, and there is a lot to choose from.

Thanks for the tip!!! I want to make some caves for a goby tank. Clay pots are great but I'm looking for something more natural.
