Best Place for Fish Decor?

Where have you guys gotten your decor (driftwood, castles, etc.) for your fish tanks? As these can get expensive, was wondering where the best place to get them was. Thanks.

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

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.
