- BRS Bulk Fiji Dry Live Rock - 50LB Box
Not what I expected By Ryan on 4/18/14Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought 100 lbs of this stuff and 90% of the rocks are the size of a softball. I probably got 1 piece the size of a football and the rest is small pieces. No way to make bridges or three islands across the tanks, basically a mound of rock in the back half of the tank. This is the first purchase from BRS that I have been disappointed with.
Great looking rock! By Greg on 4/12/14Greg would recommend this product to a friendStill curing it but looks really promising. Cool shapes and nice an porous!
Base rock By Paul on 4/1/14Paul would recommend this product to a friendPackage came well protected but there were a few small pieces that are useless. Most of the rock is ok and is only usable as base rock.

Nice selection of Rocks By Patrick on 1/25/14Patrick would recommend this product to a friendGetting ready to setup a second tank with Bulk Fiji rock. Always surprised by the nice selection of rocks that are included in the bulk box.
Exactly What Was Promised. By JJRaws on 1/13/14JJRaws would recommend this product to a friendThis product arrived exactly as I had hoped. There were roughly 10-12 pieces of smaller to medium size rock. There rock didn't have much dead/dried life to remove which saved me time for prepping the cure. I received a lot of unique pieces and some not so unique pieces for base rock. Overall, I would recommend and was happy with what arrived.
Well worth it! By Trub on 12/29/13Trub would recommend this product to a friendPicked up this rock to replace some smaller pieces in existing aquarium. Was received in excellent condition, with very little fragmentation. Very happy with purchase.
Great Rocks By Derek on 12/16/13Derek would recommend this product to a friendI ordered 150 pounds and for some amazing rocks. There were little to no breaks in the rock. I have it all curing now.
Great Looking, but 2 pieces = 50 lbs By Bert on 12/12/13Bert would recommend this product to a friendLove the look and complexity of this rock and appreciate the discount getting a "50 lb box", but I literally received 2 pieces -- one about 35 lbs that is so big I'm going to have to figure out how to create smaller pieces from it. The second piece is WONDERFULLY complex. I think the net is, if I were to do it again, I'd pay the little extra per pound and have it hand selected to more match usable sizes that I received from BRS with my Tonga Shelf, Single Branch and Complex Multi-Branch.
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.

how is this rock alive if it is dead how will it be seeded
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Michelle,
It isn't alive (which is the best part), it is live rock that has since been dried out to kill the rocks. The bacteria required to process waste, etc, in the tank will come entirely on there own and it isn't required to seed them at all (as is common with freshwater tanks) though you could use a product like Bio-Spira or the Red Sea Mature Pro kit to speed the process up if you so desired. That way you still get awseome looking and pourous rock but without the headaches and pests (aiptasia, flatworms, etc) of live rock.

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.
