- BRS Pukani Dry Aquarium Live Rock
Very porous and light By Mike on 8/17/2014Mike would recommend this product to a friendThe best rock ever
SUPER NICE! By Brad on 8/15/2014Brad would recommend this product to a friendI was expecting the picture to be their best sample and the shipped product to be somewhat less attractive. I was wrong! I bought 40 lbs of Pukani and specified the size I wanted. I got a great selection of some really special pieces.
The How To videos on aquascaping and Pukani dry rock are super helpful. I followed instructions and was able to chisel and Dremel several pieces into great caves/shapes.
Very disappointed in this product. By Chris on 8/7/2014Chris wouldn't recommend this product to a friendOrdering 57 lbs of pukani dry rock yielded 2 rocks I can use in my aquarium and a lot and I mean a lot of rubble over half a 5 gallon bucket full. The 2 usable rocks are very nice slightly larger than footballs. The rest was of the pukani was no bigger than 3-4 inchs across. I also recieved 1 or 2 that where not pukani rock 4-5 inchs in size with a smooth surface these rocks had no holes or pores and are very dense. It seems like I got the bottom of the bin sweeping in this shipment.
Unhappy with size and quality of the rock. By cwood on 8/7/2014cwood wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI just received my 57lbs of pukani rock from BRS. I got 2 rocks that where excellent one football sized and one twice the size of a football. About 20-25 lbs for the two rocks. The rest of my order came the size of a softball or smaller. A few of these smaller rocks are not pukani. They are very dense and smooth no holes. As well as half a five gallon bucket of rubble. In this order I recieved 2 very nice usable rocks and a lot of trash rocks mayb usable for going into the refugium. I don't feel what I recieved was worth the price.
Great Deal By jmar on 8/1/2014jmar would recommend this product to a friendI shopped around. This is the best deal out there. Pukani rock is very porous and make for interesting pieces! I asked for large rocks and ending up ordering too much for my tank since I was going for a more modern aesthetic. I ended up breaking the large rocks into smaller pieces. In my case I should have started with ½ lb per gallon. Great service from BRS!
Very impressed ! By danny on 7/31/2014danny would recommend this product to a friendPUKANI dry rock, ROCKS !! ! I have order both 20" & 20+" & it is the best rock I have every seen. I found it was pretty easy to make a few caves in some of the larger pieces, and make the rock structure very stable by cutting off a portion of the bottom following the BRS video. Some of the larger pieces look to be show quality. I am very impressed with the PUKANI dry rock. Thank you BRS !
cheaper than you think By William of Everett Wa on 7/29/2014William of Everett Wa would recommend this product to a friendI ordered 15lb for my nano and got 18.7lb which is over $13 worth free. Don't skimp and buy the cheaper rock because BRS will always hook you up and round up when packing your order. After the rock cycled I added a few frags and now have tons of purple and pink goodness all over using Purple Up and NO PEST! I will always check out BRS first for any of my reefer needs. Oh yeah, my RBTA loves this rock.
BRS Rocks By Adam on 7/23/2014Adam would recommend this product to a friendJust got my Pukani rock today and I have to this is the best rock I have ever seen. It is very porious and very light. Well worth the price.
WOW By John on 7/11/2014John would recommend this product to a friendI just bought 50 pounds of Pukani as part of a 100 pound rock order. I got more rock than I thought I would. I got some HUGE pieces. I am very pleased with it and I can't wait to put it in a tank
Great Rock By swseipel on 7/6/2014swseipel would recommend this product to a friendIt is a great porous rock that fits together nicely
Just Awesome! By Richard on 6/27/2014Richard would recommend this product to a friendI ordered both normal and the large Pukani rock for my 90 gallon reef. Knowing that itweighs less than other types of rock equal in size, I ordered 60 lbs. The large Pukani was massive! The piece they sent was like a giant pyramid, and I was able to punch a hole through the center as Jason did in the video. It makes for an amazing center piece in the rock work. There was plenty left over, which I placed in the sump. Worth every penny!
This is the Rock you Want By Devin on 6/21/2014Devin would recommend this product to a friendDebated on getting this or the fiji and now I feel silly for even considering the latter. This stuff is beauty in rock form and you dont even need to chisel naked ladies out of it. Ordered far less than I thought I was going to need and was still impressed. I cannot fit all 30lbs I ordered into a 45 gallon cube. I do not think the 1lb per gallon rule applies here. I would go with 1/2 to 3/4 per gallon.

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 :-)

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.
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 Jon on March 7, 2014, @3:11 PM
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.
