I used to buy "natura;" aquarium gravel form the original (Danfirth)
Aquarium Toronto store, cheaper than anywhere else. When they stopped
getting it I called around to building/agregate places. I ended up
finding a place that was so cheap the store wanted ot buy some from me.

Unfortuneatley I forgotten the name of the place or where it was, it
might have been Hamilton, but it's out there somewhere; I just used the
phone books.
