- BRS Bulk Fiji Dry Live Rock - 50LB Box
Exceptionally well packaged and great selection By shane on 11/27/13shane would recommend this product to a friendI was completely surprised when I found the box on the steps. It is a heavy cardboard box packed full of foam peanuts around a plastic bag containing the rock. Almost no rubble in the bag means there was no damage and the rock selection was great.
Epic Buy By Kristopher on 11/25/13Kristopher would recommend this product to a friendThe rock at my lfs is well over $6 a pound, and its not even fully cured yet. Im still fighting an algal bloom caused by their supposed "Fully cured rock". I decided to take it upon myself and order this package and cure the rock myself, and its magnificent.
Three weeks in a 50 gallon rubbermaid container with water changed every two days and in five short weeks I had 0 phosphates in the water and another two weeks in once seeded, and the entire collection has coralline algae pock marking the entire surface. Coupled with the reef rubble (also cured and seeded) and I way more than enough to fill my newest 70 gallon reef tank and sump.
The rock itself came in various shapes and sizes with lots of caverns, holes and an overall nice porousity and hand weight. Good mix of shapes and sizes, with a few large pieces that would not fit into a smaller tank - though these can easily be broken with a hammer/chisel, or put into a bag and smashed on the concrete floor.
Either way, Epic buy all the way around. Thanks BRS!
Mostly good By Nick on 11/19/13Nick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendGot a lot of good looking pieces with great shapes, but then also got two almost round boulders that were about 10lbs each. Can't do much with those which take away somewhat from the quality of the other pieces.
I know it thats the deal with the bulk box and ordering online, but still a bit disappointed.
Nice pieces of coral By jerry on 11/2/13jerry would recommend this product to a friendNice assortment in box gives me a good palate to work with.
Shipping in a couple of days was great and free shipping was a great bonus.
Brought for my 125gal By Mack on 11/1/13Mack would recommend this product to a friendThis was an awesome product! I would recommend it to every reefer!
Great way to start By James on 10/3/13James would recommend this product to a friendI don't live close to a lfs that carries marine stock and couldn't really justify buying live rock with over priced shipping and only receive a couple useable rocks. So I tried this dry rock and received way more rock and better shape rock with no hitch hikers. I have waited a long while before this review just to make a honest evaluation cost vs. benefits. To say the least this was a good move. I was not in a hurry to get fish or corals just yet b/c I was new to reef tanks so I seeded my tank width coralline algae and let it cycle. Turned out better than I expected, now I have nice healthy live rock with no pests. I still have to mail order live stock but starting with good live rock I think is one of the keys to getting started right. I'm still learning and trying to decide where to get some of my live stock but so far I have done well with my first salt water tank. I also just reviewed the pink alive Fiji sand so both have worked great.
Very Nice! By Billy on 8/28/13Billy would recommend this product to a friendBought 2 boxes and I am very impressed. Beautiful rock. Will be ordering more soon!!
Bulk Rock OK nothing spectacular By Squid on 8/25/13Squid wouldn't recommend this product to a friendHalf of the pieces I received were ok, but the other half did not have much shape and or character. I would not order this again.
Very impressed!!! By All Fins Aquarium Maintenance on 5/24/13All Fins Aquarium Maintenance would recommend this product to a friendVery impressed with is product! It arrived very fast and I was amazed at the amount of rock that I received, infact it may be more than I need for the 54 gallon corner bowfront it will be going into. BRS you Rock!!
Awesome By Sneakyfire on 5/16/13Sneakyfire would recommend this product to a friendGreat company will do business again
good, but cure it before using By chee on 5/14/13chee would recommend this product to a friendhave heard some people make the mistake of putting this directly in the tank. that will cause a phosphate spike. be sure to cure it first.
some of the pieces were larger than i would have liked. i wish there was the ability to specify sizes. the description is confusing about this:
"We cannot take size requests. Please order BRS Bulk Fiji Dry Live Rock for specific sizes."
still, overall it was a good buy.
great Rock! By Tan on 5/12/13Tan would recommend this product to a friendI bought 100 lb. of this rock and I am very happy with it. It goes together almost seamlessly.

Does this rock need to be cured prior to being added to an existing aquarium?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Derek,
You would for sure want to cycle any rock (our dry rock or really any other rock out there) before adding it to an already established tank to prevent any risk to your current inhabitants.
Like all of our dry rock, our Fiji Rock is free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs and is guaranteed to be free of apitasia, bubble algae, parasitic isopods, mantis shrimp, acro eating flat worms, little red bugs, fire worms, predatory nudibranchs, pyramidellid snails and other common pests.
Using Dry Rock has the following advantages:
- Low initial cost on premium types of rock.
- Pound for pound a way better value - no water weight.
- Can be shipped standard UPS ground which saves a fortune on shipping.
- Absolutely pest free. This is the most important reason. This allows you to completely avoid all of the most common aquarium pests that plague most aquarists.
Dry live rock is not available for shipment to Canada due to high tariffs. Please consider Reef Saver rock as this is not subject to these fees and our favorite of the dry rocks available.
