Well the big chain pet stores don't normally carry base rock of aquariums. (At least ones by me don't) However there are two "ma and pa" fish stores near me and they both carry almost any type of base rock and at any size you could ask for. If I were you I would see if you could find a "ma and pa" store. Goodluck :)

Buying rock is expensive, get rocks and give them the vinegar test, if they pass, scrub them with a pot scrubber and 70/30 hot water/vinegar. If your keeping cichlids your water hardness going up will only be a good thing.
