    Aqua Scaping Materials --

    One of my wholesalers has picked up a line of rock and wood. I am doing a ONE TIME order of this stuff for the local clubs. If there's demand, we might do another one in 6-12 months, but no way I'm going to regularly deal with rock. :) With the exception of some of the wood that's listed per piece, price is per pound. Rock and wood should be delivered by the November meeting, or you can pick up at Silver Spring. Absolutely no shipping! :)

    You can try to specify sizes of peices, and I'll ask, but I make no promises. I've provided some descriptions of the material below, but please use google images. Try "whatever rock aquarium" for your best results.

    Cost below is an estimate, and final cost may vary slightly based upon final weight. For example, if you order 6 pounds or rock, and they only have two four pound chunks, you will get eight pounds and will owe me a couple bucks. Similarly, if you order 8 pounds, and they have two three pound chunks, I owe you a couple of bucks! (Just like ordering apples from an online grocer -- you know there is no way you're going to get exactly 3 pounds of apples, so you accept that you'll get 3.28 pounds and have to pay for that excess). All orders should be pretty darn close to the requested weight.

    Picks will go to first orders received -- so if two people order five pounds of that gorgeous, awesome glass rock, the first person gets to pick their five pounds and the second gets whatevers left! I'll likely be ordering /more/ than what you guys do, so you should all get some pick (except glass rock. I'm not ordering glass rock. As a matter of fact, please no one order glass rock).

    This is an introductory price on it. IF I somehow go crazy and do another order in six months, expect the prices to be significantly higher. For any ROCK ORDER over 10 pounds of one type, subtract 10%. For any ROCK ORDER over 25 pounds of one type, subtract 20%. This applies regardless of whether one person or ten people order it.

    Orders must be received by the 27th, and payment by PayPal to BatfishAquatics@gmail.com must be received by the 30th. I will post whenever we hit one of the discount levels on ROCK with the updated price.

    Descriptions:
    Please note that all descriptions are mine, and I did the best I can. I haven't seen all of these, and I can only give you my best! When all else fails, google images is your friend.

    Wood
    Jungle Wood -- Medium coloured wood, not particularly branchy.
    Malaysian Wood -- Usually dark on one side, light on the other, curvy, with lots of detail
    Mopani Wood -- Fairly dark coloured, very heavy wood. Usually sinks immediately.
    Jungle Wood -- Medium / Dark lightweight wood.
    Malaysian Wood -- Standard aquarium driftwood. Medium colour, medium weight.
    Vuka Wood -- Very light weight, hollow wood typically used for terrestrial stuff (hermit crabs).
    Western Driftwood -- Light coloured, medium weight wood.

    River Wood -- Dark coloured, basic driftwood. Almost black.
    Talawa Wood -- Medium coloured, super branchy wood.


    Rocks
    Glass Rock, Assorted Colours -- This is literally chunks of glass, and comes in bright colours. Perfect for winning GWAPA aquascaping contest.
    Black Island Lava Rock -- This doesn't look like lava rock. It is black, porous, and has melty sections
    Black River Rock-- Smooth, black stones, fairly similar to the stuff you see used in homes (but somewhat larger)
    Black Snailstone-- Dark grey, fairly smooth stones
    Blue Petrified Wood-- Dark grey to blue coloured petrified wood
    Blue Sodalite-- A reltaively light coloured rock with blue streaks
    Dark Hill Stone-- Dark black, angular rock
    Dragon Stone-- Dark brown rock with many nooks and crannies in it.
    Exotic Green Slate-- Really cool slate, green in colour, sometimes with streaks of yellow.
    Faryland Stone-- Dark grey with some brown or darker streaks, forms interesting shapes, like castle walls.
    Freak Stone (Red Creek Jasper)-- A greenish to grey rock with lots of red and orange streaks, like a toddler with a crayon.

    Green African Tumbled Stone-- Smoothed, dark green stones.
    Green Slate-- Basic off green slate pieces.
    Lace Rock-- Light grey coloured, extremely porous, lightweight stone. Will raise pH.

    Light Maple Leaf Rock-- Light brownish stone, lots of interesting pattern with green and white.
    Maple Leaf Rock-- Dark brown stone, web pattern throughout.
    Moon Stone-- Grey, porous stone in interesting shapes. Looks like chunks of moon rock.
    Ocean Flower Rock-- Beautiful smooth stone, polished finish. Typically dark brown with white and lighter patterns.
    Pagoda Stone-- Medium brown stone in interesting shapes that lends well to building and stacking.

    Yangste Stone-- Dark brown, roundish rocks with lots of texture.

    That glass rock sounds intriguing. And I want to win a gwapa contest. I might have to get some. :p

    Just so you know, anyone ordering glass rock...
    I reserve the right to throw it at you. LOL. :)

    Seriously, it is really kind of pretty in like a kid's tank or something. I'd be careful with fish choices, as it is chunks of glass, and it does sometimes have edges.

    I would like .87 pounds of the glass rock, blue, with bubbles frozen in time within. If this has any relation to Dragon Stone, and can kill white walkers, I'll take two pieces.

    Then 1.16 pounds of the Exotic Green Slate with the yellow lines going horizontal. The horizontal direction is key. Non negotiable.

    Please and thank you.

    (Meant to be funny...)
