Just so you know, stones larger that about 1 inch trap more debris between them and are more difficult to vac clean. Otherwise, congrats on the find. I pay $4 for five pounds of 1/2 inch aquarium stones.

And before you put the stones in the tank...
Rinse,rinse,rinse,rinse,rinse,rinse,rinse,rinse,ri nse!

The sand and gravel I put in my tanks comes from landscape and sandblasting supply companies....the gravel needs a bit of rinsing, but at $6 for 90lbs, I'm not complaining.

WOW, great deal - like I said, I paid $3.99 for 5 lbs at the lfs.
And I'm not too particular about the color either - I prefer natural stone over the colored stuff anyway.
