You can also try craigslist. That's where I found my tank, and later some huge chunks of Malaysian driftwood. I only paid $60.00 for what I recall was about seven large pieces. I love www.craigslist.com

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I thought about that but also the fact that they may carry diseases, is that possible?

Yes, this is true, which is why I boiled the heck out of it. It was a pain in the butt as the chunks were huge, and I had to use a lobster pot. Boiling kills most anything. I boiled it, let it dry out, and boiled it again. I'm not sure I needed to go that far with it but what can I say? I'm a geek...

you cooked it without eating it?
