    I don't think you're gonna find anywhere that sells Redmoor wood that cheaply. The only places I know of are our sponsors, Aqua Essentials and The Green Machine. Both sell individual bits and by size. You can get some bits that are cheap, but others are overpriced. You've just got to keep an eye out.

    My LFS sells it, but it's not that cheap either. They sell it by weight, but I think it's comparable to AE/TGM to be honest. Obviously theres no shipping involved though...

    Have a search on ebay for "red moor". I just found the seller Last-trading-post selling some reasonable sized bits for a reasonable price :)

    The thing with redmoor is that it's usually pretty light, comparable to the size of the piece, so the price per kilo is hiked up.
    You see two pieces, same sort of size, but one is about £17 and the other about £45.
    I can pretty much guarantee that the £17 one is going to float.

    I thought if i got the right piece for my tank i would tie it to a bit of slate and cover the slate with gravel and that would keep it in place,maybe it would work maybe not but i will wait and see what sort of piece i come across and try that, their must be a way of keeping the lighter bits down :?

    Soaking them for some weeks does work. With redmoor the soaking takes longer as it's such a dense wood. I have some smaller pieces which stay put after being soaked for some time :)
