    Just to share some info about the rock distributor that was mentioned a while back by yangqian in his tank journals... the address of the place is 40 Jalan Lekar, near Qian Hu.

    I was in the area a few weeks back getting some landscaping supplies and managed to check out their selection of rocks, they mainly stock rocks for outdoor landscaping purposes, but there are also rocks that could be used in aquariums too.

    Here are some photos that i took at the place:

    Entrance from Jalan Lekar...



    Assorted gravel, soil and small rocks (some sample tubs have small lava rocks too).



    Some larger lava rocks with hollowed out cavities to put soil and plants.



    Entrance to the rock storage area.



    Giant boulders available... asked the staff about the weight of one of those that are lying on the ground and he mentioned they should be around 1 ton each! Abit too large to put in aquarium.



    Came across the pile of rocks that look suitable for use in aquascapes, they are the common greyish rocks with white veins.



    Many of the rocks are quite large, probably around 20-30kg each.



    You'll have to smash them into smaller pieces with this classic sledge hammer, get a good workout.



    Not enough strength to break rocks? No worries, they also have pre-smashed rocks already packed in bags too.



    Happy rock shopping!

    I was quoted 70 cents per kg at the rock distributor... not sure if they meant all the rocks in general or different rocks have different prices. I guess once a type of rocks are selected, have to get a more specific quote.

    This place is good for you to hunt for the shape you want .. the boss will just tell you go and have fun rock hunting.
