This weekend, I want to add some stone to my 80 gallon African cichlid tank. I've done river rock and granite in the past, I'd really like to do holey rock this time, but honestly can't justify dropping hundreds of dollars.

What's currently the best landscape supply company to buy larger pieces of lava rock? I've seen holey rock piled up at landscape supply lots by the dumptruck load, but not in Canada (unfortunately).

Where do you folks recommend?

I have 120lbs of mexican bowl rock in my tank. I love it. It gets nice colours. 1 down fall. The rough edges xan scratch the fishs eyes when they chase each other. Ive had it for over 4 year in my tank. Make sure you wash it with a hose its fairly dirty. Theybhave a huge selection at NW Landscape

Look at that selection. Amazing. Bowl rock is great as it forms so many caves. If only they also had holey rock when I was working with Tropheus.
