Help me pick chain for my anchor

I have recently posted requesting help in deciding if my ground tackle is suffiicient. One recommendation is more chain. i have 12 ft of (i think) 5/16 galvanized chain. i want to increase it. I have noticed there are different types of chain. What is recommended and where can i get it? Is Lowes or home depot an economical option for chain or should i be sticking to a west marine or something like that. Can i just add to what i have with a shackle or should i replace the whole chain? Jason
