My rocks are from beaches ( a field guide helps for finding inert rocks). My wood is local hardwood.

I get my wood mostly online but some comes from other fishkeepers. A couple of months back I invested in some giant pieces, most of which can be used both upright (in very deep ptanks) or on their side. Some will go into my pleco breeding tanks and others I will sell as I do not need them all.

Since Covid finding wood has not been easy. I got the big stuff from another hobbyist. He posted it on Monsterfishkeepers forum. I drove 2 hours each way to get it. But I am a bit nuts sometimes.

I think that COVID has also had an impact on finding fish, especially wild caught. May seem off the wall but many wild caught cichlids are from areas that would be considered third world. I wonder how many gatherers were knocked out by COVID.

It definitely has in my local fish stores dwarf Chain loaches where once 3 for £15 now it's 3 for £107 and they keep going up and up.

I always buy wood and stone at my local store. I like to personally pick out the size and shape which is near impossible online.
