Where do you guys get your driftwood?

I've been looking for some nice pieces of driftwood like I've seen in the members showcase to attach java fern and java moss to, but so far I haven't had any luck. I know I can find them online, but does anyone have any suggestions as to what types of stores I should look at (aside from the petsmart near me that doesn't have anything)? If not, what are some good websites people have ordered from?

I got my driftwood from Aquatic Eco-Systems. Great customer service and the pieces they picked were great. Malaysian driftwood sunk immediately after putting it in the water.

I also found that the local PETCO stores have a really nice selection of smaller pieces of Malaysian driftwood.

You're not too far from Absolutely Fish in Clifton, NJ... They have a great store and you would definitely find some good pieces at $6 a pound.

their site is www.absolutelyfish.com

If not, there's a site called florida driftwood (Google it)

Nice! Yeah I tried finding wood near my house, but in New York all you can really find is old bug infested rotting pieces... especially this time of year. Hey PrettyFishies, how's that Aquarium City place near Paramus? I saw it last time I was down there but never checked it out...

lol $6 per pound that sucks. i guess there are some perks to being in canada. i can pic up like 3 different types of driftwood all for 1.99 to 2.30 per pound. the big als near me is amazing. are there many big als in the states? i have a list of all the stores in canada then it say the american stores but the only listed is the main florida farm where they ship all there fish from. they have awesome online service and prices and there stores are even better. to bad they dont sell driftwood online lol

That is where I got mine. The big pieces are tough to sink.
