They ship EXACTLY what you order By Vince on 10/22/2014Vince would recommend this product to a friendJust a warning that you will receive in weight exactly what you order. If that means they have to fill the bag with tiny useless pieces of Rock, they do. While I could never get my order to match the 50lbs I ordered, it was just shy I am happy with the rock I received. Here is what you get when you order 50lbs FYI:
Great Rock By Daniel on 10/16/2014Daniel would recommend this product to a friendThis is the first time I've ordered rock online, so I was a bit skeptical. BUT, the rock arrived in good condition, the pieces are decently sized (they look smaller in the picture, but they are pretty big pieces). Overall happy with the product.
Sweet By Bvaughn7 on 10/14/2014Bvaughn7 would recommend this product to a friendLove my Pukani! Light, porous and great for adding shelfs to 3-D background walls.
very happy with purchase By Jill on 10/5/2014Jill would recommend this product to a friendThis rock arrived in good shape with little/no damage during shipping. BRS staff was very helpful in providing larger sized chunks since they were out of the 20"+ pieces. The texture of the rock is very interesting. There was some phosphate leaching that was easily controlled during the cooking process.
shown here at all By nick on 9/25/2014nick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendgot one big piece that looked like a chuck of cement. Looked nothing close to advertised.
Awesome rock for an even better price By Nathan on 9/25/2014Nathan would recommend this product to a friend...What else can i say. i only ordered three pounds of this rock, but, man i sure got a lot! it looks awesome in my tank. and it fits very well with other pieces. plus, the texture is just awesome!
Great Rock By Travis on 9/22/2014Travis would recommend this product to a friendThe pukani rock is great you get more for the pound than I have ever seen. The greatest aspect of it is how porous it is. It is also the only draw back of it also. I would recommend this rock to anyone just handle it a bit easier than you normally would. Being so porous also makes it more breakable. That being said it is still the greatest rock Ive gotten to work with.
Very Nice By Orlando on 9/17/2014Orlando would recommend this product to a friendVery porous and light. Tons of little holes and caves for small fish to hide. Looks great.
Pukani rock By jrshew on 9/14/2014jrshew would recommend this product to a friendEverything I have purchased from BRS has been top notch. I was a little surprised at the pukani rock I received reading the reviews previously. Although I had one piece that I would consider a showpiece, the remaining 40 pounds was small (~6 inches) and will be difficult to build up to the size that I need. I guess I was expecting larger pieces. Disappointment.
Great Rock By Keith on 9/4/2014Keith would recommend this product to a friendI've started the aquascaping of my new tank build with this rock and it is very easy to work with. It's very easy to blend one piece with another making a fluid design. Make sure and watch the BRS instructional video on aquascaping if it's your first time. It really helps you get a natural looking tank in stead of a "stack of rocks".
Get Reef Saver By Mark on 8/28/2014Mark wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI had previously purchased the Reef Saver rock and loved it. Anxious to try out the other rock offering from BRS I ordered some Pukani. The rock came to me very dirty and unattractive. I only got a couple useable pieces. I still love BRS but I'll be sticking with Reef Saver.
Looks great! By Maxwell on 8/27/2014Maxwell would recommend this product to a friendThis rock looks great in my aquarium. All the holes make great hiding places for my crabs from my Triggerfish. I will continue to buy more and more of this rock!

How many pounds would I need for a reef tank with dimensions of 36x17x25 approx 65 gallons? Thanks, Eric.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Eric,
For a nice middle of the road aquascape, 1lb per gallon is a good ballpark value (so 65lbs). Never hurts to have some extra though, helps with aquascaping when you have more rocks to chose from and if you end up with extra's you can always throw them in the sump, break them up to use as frag plugs, etc.

Generally how many pieces of rock would come in a 15 lb shipment? I have a 45gal and don't necessarily want a 15lb rock but several smaller rocks.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Ryan,
As far as rock goes, pukani is one of the larger types so your typical 15lbs would usually be something like 3-5 rocks at their smallest sizes.

I am a complete newbie - how much rock and sand would i need for a 24 gallon reef tank?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Joe,
I would get right about 25lbs. That should give you plenty to work with!

Hello, if I was to buy dry rock and put in qty of 15 would I get 15 rocks or 15 pounds?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Jon,
All of the rock is sold by the pound. If you order a quantity of 15lbs you would receive 15lbs of rock.

I am setting up the Innovative marine mini 38, with a usable dimension of 14.72x23.62x19.02, and I am not sure which size and how much I should order. I was looking at ordering 30 to 40 pounds but I did not want to receive all small pieces, but I am afraid that the 20"+ will be far to large and I will end up having to cut it up anyways. What would your recommendation be for the order?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Mark,
For a tank that size I would get 30-40lbs of the normal pukani. Pukani is generally large by its nature and 20" + pieces are often even larger then that and almost for sure would be bigger than the tank :-)
by dana on November 23, 2013, @8:05 PM
The 20+" pukani. Are they all about 20+" or are some bigger. The rocks smaller than 20". Would I expect to get rocks as small as 5 inches. Or are they just under 20". Will I get a variation of sizes.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Dana,
The 20" + pukani is rocks that have a dimension that is 20" and bigger. They can get much larger then 20". Rocks that aren't 20" or bigger would all have dimensions that are smaller then 20".
by dana on September 8, 2013, @11:38 AM
question about the pukani rock. how many pounds is one rock
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Dana,
No two rocks are the same but a football size piece will generally be right in the ball park of 7-8lbs or so.
by Justin on April 6, 2014, @3:06 AM
I noticed the your rock says you pukani is free of nuisance algae and debris. Does it still have to be cured before going into a new tank for cycle process?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Justin,
You would absolutely want to cure/cycle this rock in a separate container. There is no live pests, algae, etc but there may still be organic matter that will break down on the rock and its just better to make sure that doesn't happen in an existing reef tank.
BRS Pukani Dry Aquarium Live Rock - our lightest and most porous and full of holes that become nice homes and passage ways for your tank's inhabitants. Like all of our dry rock, Pukani is free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs. It 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.
NOTE: This rock does come out of the ocean and may have some dead material on it such as sponges or other critters. We strongly suggest soaking or curing the rock before use in an active aquarium.
Dry live rock is not available for shipment to Canada due to high tariffs. Please consider Reef Saver rock as it is not subject to these fees and is our favorite of the dry rocks available.
