Live Rock

Does anyone know of where I could find a good deal on some rock?
It does'nt have to be "live". I need it to make a backdrop for my aquarium. I will need around 40lbs.

Thanks.

You also need it for some good biological filtration. We have some onsite vendors if you are talkinf buying online.

Thanks. Iam going to be attaching them to an egg crate so it will be time consuming, so the rock will not be able to be/stay live.

I got the idea from INNOVATOR in a thread yesturday.

My tank is taller than it is wide because it is a hexagon. I have been trying to find a way to utilize the top half of my tank. The only way to stack them that high is to have a support system. You can look at my pics in my profile to see what Iam talking about with my tank.
