Where to buy aquascaping rocks?

Been out of the hobby for a while and it seems like almost all the fish stores are gone now.

Any ideas?

Check with a landscape supply depot for good selection and prices or as mentioned free from the river, just soak them in a bucket of water for a couple days to make sure they won't alter water chemistry.

RE Macdonald in Langley is excellent. I just picked up a pile of basalt and it was inexpensive. They moved all my pieces on a pallet and even helped me load it. 10/10 would do again.

Thanks for all the tips. For anyone else rock hunting that's looking to shell out $, I ended up buying seiryu stone from the states and shipping it to a PO box.
Came to 42$CAD for 17lbs vs locally 120$ for 20lbs

Any rocks or stones that came from riverbeds are ideal for aquariums. You can also use anything that came from a quarry. Aside from pet supply stores, you can also get rocks that you can use either for decorations or substrates from any gardening or landscaping supply store.
