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 :-)

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

the old Walmart is always a good alternative for decor. ;)

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... :|
