Have you called any landscaping places locally?

Shipping it to yourself will never be cheap... Better to find a local wholesaler as they have better prices than we could ever get online...

Call these guys Northwest landscaping see if they can help/// They have most everything there!

I checked with them a few years ago and they didn't have those rocks at that time. They did have lots of Lava Rock though.

But you never know, they might have some now. Post your findings here Mike :)

J&L Aquatics used to have it. When I was buying Reef Rock for my tank they had Texas Holey Rock right beside them. This was March 2010.

I can no longer find it on their site so maybe they stopped carrying them?

They don't have it at Northwest Landscape for sure. I checked with them about 2 yrs ago and I was just there last weekends as well.

The only store carry anything similar are at Island Pets Unlimited but it's not cheap per pound...

Best chance of scoring something reasonably priced is ebay. There's also a couple of etailers in the states that sell it in bulk. But as most people have mentioned, it ain't cheap. Locally, you might find it occasionally but its not quite the same quality. Some of the stuff I had before was super nice and huge. With lots of holes for fish like Tropheus.

mine was just taken by a member..but i can get more..but id have to know for sure you want it..it comes in a box . im willing to get it for not much over wholesale price..just a handling charge..for my achey breaky back..lifting and picking up at the whoelsaler. dont remember how much it was per box.
but if your only wanting a couple small pieces..then not worth me getting another box.
