Hi,

I am a complete newbie - how much rock and sand would i need for a 24 gallon reef tank?

Thanks again,

Joe
Question by: joe on Apr 4, 2014 4:54:00 PM
Hey Joe,
I would get right about 25lbs. That should give you plenty to work with!
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 4, 2014 4:54:00 PM
How many pounds would I need for a reef tank with dimensions of 36x17x25 approx 65 gallons? Thanks, Eric.
Question by: Eric on Oct 27, 2013 12:10:00 PM
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.

question about the pukani rock. how many pounds is one rock
Question by: dana on Sep 8, 2013 11:38:00 AM
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.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 8, 2013 11:38:00 AM
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.

Thanks

Ryan
Question by: Ryan on Mar 24, 2014 5:58:00 AM
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.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 24, 2014 5:58:00 AM
Can you help me estimate how many pounds of dry rock I will need? I'm starting a 120 gallon 4ft reef tank with refugium. I plan to build a rounded top mound that sits in the center of the tank with interesting holes and recesses.
Question by: John on Apr 26, 2014 8:55:00 AM
Hey John,
I would go with something right in the ball park of 110-120lbs. Having a bit extra in your situation might not hurt either as its sounds like you have something pretty specialized in mind. Having those extra pieces will help make sure you have enough to work with as your design your aquascape. If there is any left over when your done you can always throw it in the sump as filtration, break it up and use it as frag plugs, etc.

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?
Question by: Mark on Jun 18, 2014 1:26:00 PM
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 :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jun 18, 2014 1:26:00 PM
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?
Question by: Justin on Apr 6, 2014 3:06:00 AM
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.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 6, 2014 3:06:00 AM
Hello, if I was to buy dry rock and put in qty of 15 would I get 15 rocks or 15 pounds?
Question by: Jon on Mar 7, 2014 3:11:00 PM
Hi Jon,
All of the rock is sold by the pound. If you order a quantity of 15lbs you would receive 15lbs of rock.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 7, 2014 3:11:00 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.
Question by: dana on Nov 23, 2013 8:05:00 PM
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".

Full Details

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.

  • Best rock I've ever used By Andrew on 5/18/2015

    This was out of stock when I was ready to place an order, but I am VERY glad that I decided to wait rather than just order a different kind of rock. The pukani is every bit as good as the other reviews say. Lightweight, fascinating shapes, very porous. This is the best rock I've ever used and the ONLY rock I will ever use again. BRS sent me an awesome rock that looks like a Star Destroyer, which appeals to the nerd in me. Nice.
  • I literally have a boulder, that I can pick up, sitting in my garage right now! By Jeff on 5/16/2015

    I'm hoping to take it a few steps beyond "dumped wheelbarrow pile of rocks" and come up with some really neat aquascaping for my new FOWLR tank I'm setting up.

    I figure I need about 50# and since I heard the pukani runs really light I ordered 75# to have a few choices among the smaller rocks I thought I'd receive.
    It just came in today and it came in one piece!

    I literally have a boulder, that I can pick up, sitting in my garage right now!

    Looking forward to cleaning up my work bench so that I can break this bad boy up and channel my inner sculptor. Thanks BRS! (I'll bet a LOT of ups guys hate you...;-)
  • Stunning Rock By Kevin on 5/11/2015

    BRS is incredible. I'm setting up my first tank, a 24" cube seahorse tank, and chatted several times with customer service via the Live Chat button (they were offline, but I left a message and rec'd an email the next morning, and then prompt replies to my questions). I ended up ordering 35 lbs at the recommendation of BRS, and I put a detailed note in with the order letting them know I was looking for one very large centerpiece rock for a minimalist scape that would look great and also create a bit of a flow blocker for the horses.
    They called me about a half hour later asking for clarification - they wanted to make sure I wasn't looking for a piece of Pukani 24x24x24 (which they said they could find if I needed it!!). They helped me clarify exactly what I was looking for and promised they could find something really cool - I told them to send smaller rocks for the corners with any leftover weight.
    The package arrived today, padded with an insane amount of peanuts. Inside were 3 pristine pieces with less than a palmful of rubble. The smallest piece is about 8" wide, the middle piece is about 12", and the largest piece is a stunning 18" wide, 12" tall, and 8" deep.
    The big piece alone is so striking and aesthetic that I'm using it completely by itself in the tank - I wish I could post a picture because it is the most perfect fit I could have asked for - someone definitely hand picked this for me.
    Can't thank you guys enough, and absolutely recommend this rock (along with a detailed description of what you're looking for). BRS rocks! (lol)
    I've probably got about 15lbs left over - the main rock is probably 25, and the package was 40 (5 extra lbs!).
  • Not as advertised By Mike on 5/5/2015

    I just received my order today in the mail of 50lbs of pukani. I was a little disappointed with the selection I got. Some nice size ones, but some of the medium size ones looked like they were broken off from another larger piece and put in the box. Not what I thought or seen from videos or pics.
  • Pukani rock By Vetteguy on 4/28/2015

    Best thing I can say is " I should have ordered MORE and just rinse off in water and place in tank. Lots of nice holes for frag plugs !!
  • Don't buy anything else! By Alex on 4/22/2015

    I have bought other types of rock, even from BRS, and every time I kick myself for not waiting for the Pukani to come back in stock. This time I didn't make that mistake... I ordered 75 lbs and recieved some huge, gorgeous rocks. I had some friends who aren't even reefers see them and say "wow, those rocks are beautiful". On top of that they are so light and porous.

    I soak them in lanthanum chloride a couple times to make sure there are no phosphates that will leech out and that makes them perfect for my reef!

    The best part is how big and beautiful the rocks are. My 75lbs came in 7-8 rocks... 5 were massive, basketball to beachball size, the others football size.

    Don't hesitate to buy these, you will thank yourself (and BRS) for years to come!

  • This rock rocks! By Timothy on 4/18/2015

    I ordered 10lbs. and it came as one large piece. So light and porous you get a much larger portion by weight than you would think. After watching the how to video I had no problem chiseling an intricate cave network into the piece I ordered to give it a custom look. I'll definitely be ordering more!
  • Good stuff By Cody on 4/17/2015

    Seems as advertised.
  • Monster Rock By MrJoshua on 4/13/2015

    50lbs ordered - Giant chunks of rock love received. Really porous, light, large boulders with minimal rubble/breakage from shipping. I'll never order anything else for a display tank again.
  • GREAT ROCK FOR THE PRICE! By Los on 4/13/2015

    Received some great pieces for my tank. Was pack well and had very little breakage if any. I was able to aqua-scape for small caves in my rock without any problems. I recommend this to anyone looking to get dry rock.
  • Great Rock...Poor Packaging By Barry on 4/13/2015

    Pros: The rocks I received were awesome!

    Cons: The single-walled box they were shipped in barely survived the journey. The UPS guy left a trail of packing peanuts behind him when he brought what was left of the box to my door.
  • Awesome Rock! By PukaniMonster on 4/12/2015

    This rock is fabulous..I ordered 30 lbs and got 3 really nice pieces..I was very happy with the sizing. Very little dead matter to remove. Looks gorgeous in my display tank! Thanks BRS!
