Hi all! Can anyone suggest a good place in town for rocks/stones for a small (10 gallon) layout? I've been to the fish gallery and they have some ok stuff, but I was really wondering if anyone could recommend a shop that specializes in rocks and would have a wider selection... and maybe wouldn't mind if I put muriatic acid on their stuff :wink: haha

Thanks,
Nick

Nick, try some stoneyards around the town. Most of the stones found around Houston are calcareous. But you could ask them for Texas fossil rock. There are a few others which are also good.

Thanks

There is a place called Natural Earth Products Company (NEPCO) on Stancliff off 59 South. It is open until 12 noon on Saturdays. Its a lot cheaper than FG, plus you can get extra for your garden!
