Looking for limewood airstone supplier

Hi. I'm looking for a person or company that can supply good quality limewood airstones for the nano protein skimmers that I build. I would start buying lots of 200 limewood airstones per month and hopefully increasing gradually.

First where are you located?

If in the US then...
Not sure what pricing you are looking for but you can pick them up on ebay for a little over a dollar a piece..
akema aquatics seems to be one supplier of them in bulk..
But I believe thats CPR aquatics ebay store..

Being blunt and having fun

mcgyr is right, your location is a big consideration for this one, especially if you're looking for ones locally. Nevertheless, you could always rely on online sources such as eBay, amazon, and the like. Anyway, below is a site with reviews that appeared when I searched Limewood Airstone Supplier, check this one out yourself:

Hope this helps!

If you're already building skimmers, why not build the airstones? It's just a chunk of wood. Make it a proprietary size/shape that needs to be purchased from you. Then, wait for that sweet, sweet airstone money to roll in.

I get mine from a guy on ebay. He makes all different sizes and they are reasonably priced.
