I'm looking to buy some rocks for my cichlid tanks, and was hoping someone here would be able to point me in the right direction to a good local place. Ideally, something with the aesthetic of lava rock or Texas holey rock would be best, but I'm open to other rocks as well. Bonus points if it won't break the bank!

Thanks!

Thanks for the help, guys! Went to Northwest Landscape and picked up 100 LBS of Feather Rock. Can't wait to see how it looks in my tanks!

I can't seem to find golfball sized (and also flatter shaped) black lava rock east of Coquitlam. I've checked almost every landscape place between Coquitlam and Chilliwack. All other alternative variations pebble sized, larger red rocks, etc seem to be available at some of these places though. Anybody seen where black golfball sized lava rock can be purchased?

You may have better luck buying larger chunks and cutting/breaking it into smaller pieces

I get mine outside, I have good access to rocks being in chilliwack. Of course it's not the greatest rocks, but paying money for rocks is something I won't do.

Edit: because I'm cheap, no other reason lol
