Any have any experiences they can share about ordering these stones and having them shipped? My concerns are:

1. Whether they will fit my tank (4 gallon)
2. If they will exhibit the character I am looking for
3. If they will work with the hardscape I hope to achieve

Any tips would be great since asking the vendor to take photos maybe out of the question... otherwise I am on the east coast and not sure who may carry any ADA products.

Thanks,
R

I'd recommend that you talk to the AquaForest Aquarium guys themselves and ask your questions. then verify it with the forum members, this should help your further.

Well I've order stones a couple times. I've only ordered Ryouh stone once but you have to tell them what your looking for. For a 4g they will probably give you around 35-5 rocks ranging in size if you order 5lbs of it. I plan to order around 15lbs of Ryouh, 15lbs of Manten, and then some Shou and Zebra stone soon enough so I hope I can get some nice stones. Anyways good luck!

The problem with ordering stones on line is you never really know what you get. I have ordered some Yamaya stones from the AFA and got some decent pieces. However, my last on-line order of Ryoh stones from them was not at all useful.

Nothing beats picking what you want at the store at AFA (I was there end of Oct) or a rock yard (and pay a fraction of a price).

Thanks for the replies! I sent AFA the same questions. I have asked them for photos but I can understand for an order that is about $20.00 that it may not be worth their time... I may have my brother stop by and pick some stones for me.. he is in Silicon Valley..
