Nice rock?

Does anyone know where I can get some nice sized rock for a good price?
My lfs has some rock about the size of your fist for $8 a piece.
I would like to have asome bigger.
Just thought that was a bit steep or is that the norm.
This is for fw by the way.
Thanks.

I did. It was just a community tank that we wanted to have some rocks in it.

You could also get it at Lowes or Home Depot. I bought some at Lowes from a company at http://www.vcstone.com

that stuff was about $5 for a 25 lb bag and not the only style.

Check out your local Yard landscaping companies. We have one here in town that even stocks gravel for the bottom of tanks.
