Default I give up...Help please

I have been checking out everyones tanks and have decided to try the fake stone look in my 90 gal.
Well, heres the problem....
Everyone seems to say that they had the computer insulation foam laying around. When i moved into my new house I thought there would be a huge pile laying around waiting for me, no such luck. :roll:
So I was wondering where this stuff can be bought and what is it called exactly? Thanks in advance...Sara

Not sure if they'd have any, but maybe you could go to a place like a Best Buy? I guess that's the first place I would ask.

You could try loading docks/dumpster areas of colleges or universities if there are any nearby. I find tons of it there. Craft stores also carry blocks and sheets of similar stuff; at least you could get styro there, which would also likely work.

On Page 7 of the thread link you gave, edwing206 and arielelf decided that it was the same or similar to the Polyethylene Foam on this web site http://www.closedcellfoams.com/ I believe they also mentioned it is similar to the foam that those pool noodle flotation toys are made from.

I have successfully used regular styrofoam to make a fake tree and rock work using grout. You can get styrofoam in sheets at the hardware store. It is the white foam that is made of millions of little white beads. Makes a real mess when you carve it :-D

Hope that helps :-)
