How many pounds of rock?

Hey!

I am starting to aquascape and I need to get some rocks for the job. The thing is, there is no store around me that sells rocks, so I have to order on the internet. Most sites give me an option of how many pounds I want, but I have no idea the scale of the rocks and if they will fit in my 10 gallon. If anybody has any information I would be very pleased!

Have you ordered online before? If you have, how big are the stone sizes? Thanks for your reply!

Are you talking about the substrate, or larger decorative rocks?

Well really however much you want. In my 25 I got a large piece of lava rock, then broke a smaller chunk off to put in the corner. Usually, they sell the rocks singly with measurments and weight, so you can get an idea of what you a getting.

Where did you order online from if you remember? All the sites that I have found only give a weight amount that you can buy! :X
