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.

Hello,

I have a glass aquarium that is 72 inches long, 26 inches tall and 18 inches deep with corner (both) drains. How much Pukani Dry Live Rock should I get? I understand that this type of rock is easy to work with for aquascaping at least according to BRS videos. I have read that it is recommenced to get one pound of rock per gallon and I have a 150 gallon tank. Does this recommendation still apply with Pukani since it is lighter? This is my first saltwater tank.

Thank you
Question by: David on Jan 19, 2016 9:48:00 AM
Great question!
You will typically want a little less than 1 lb per gallon with Pukani because of how porous it is. on a 150 gallon we typically recommend starting with around 100 lbs of Pukani. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Hello,

I am getting ready to upsize from 90 gal to 125 gal and want to do some new aquascaping. If I build the structure while the rock is dry (make some flat bottoms and/or dowel or epoxy pieces together) and then cure it in a separate container, would I still be able to epoxy/glue it into the new tank after being cured? If so, what would be the best epoxy or glue to adhere this to the glass bottom?
Thanks,
Tom
Question by: Tom on Jan 20, 2016 3:05:00 PM
Great question!
You can certainly use epoxy and super glue on the cured rock just fine. the super glue and reef epoxy will cure while wet and can work well. If you are looking to glue to the bottom of a glass tank it can be tough and many people would recommend using egg crate and mounting with epoxy. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

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 :-)

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.

BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Rock.  However, the UPS automation is not always gentle on heavy products like this and they do not consider this product insurable. Because of this, there is some inherent risk with shipping rock like this across the country and it is impossible to replace or refund broken pieces. If this happens most pieces can be repaired with epoxy.

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.

  • Looks awesome By Tony on 2/12/2016

    I ordered 75lbs of this and asked for bigger rocks for my tank size and they did not disappoint I got 5 good size rocks and a couple of them look just like the YouTube videos brs has on them so that was awesome also
    Been cooking them for almost two weeks and po4 level has been 0.0ppm for the last week
  • Beware By Crow on 2/11/2016

    First let me get one thing straight, I love BRS and have ordered $,$$$ from them, but as a fellow hobbiest I could not let others know about the hell that is the pukani dry rock!

    O placed my order OCTOBER 21, 2014, and since this was a new tank build once I got the rock it was placed right away in the tank off to cycle/cook/cure whatever you want to call it.

    It sat in my tank and as of this post is STILL in my tank leeching phosphate, but Crow, how can that be? To be honest I've been in this hobby over 20 years now and I have never seen this happen....

    But how do you know it's from the rock and not from fish food, water supply, water storage container?

    Even using 3x the amount of BRS GFO, changed monthly, the phos levels have never gotten below 0.08! I've been fighting brown/green and every other color of algae and it's been such a disaster, I was about to call it quotes in a hobby I've loved for over two decades, I've never used dry rock before now, I went with it this build cause I didn't want my hobby to have an impact on the real reef, so the dry was a good fit, NEVER again, I won't buy it, I won't ever recommend this stuff to my worst enemy.

    So my order from "RealReef" is being sent out today!
  • Nice By Vincent on 2/11/2016

    I received 30 lbs in one whole piece. I love it.
  • Rocks on rocks on rocks By Aaron on 2/10/2016

    Awesome stuff looks great no round peices. I asked for nothing bigger than a football and no round peices and wow! BRS did it again! 70 pounds looks more like 100 and will fill my 90 up just nice. Thanks!
  • Great Service and Product Selection By Dan on 2/5/2016

    Team did a great job getting this item out quickly and in the size requested. There was a bit of organic material on the product and as BRS suggested requires a cure period. I recommend this product to anyone looking.
  • Received my order today! :) By Jeff on 2/4/2016

    I just received my order of 10 pounds of this Pukani rock and the videos are spot on as well as the description. I only ordered 10 pounds because like everything always a little hesitant to drop $50 on something that you haven't seen in person before but man this stuff is awesome. I got 4 pieces in my 10 pound order of which 2 are med/large and the other 2 are sm/medium size which is perfect for my tank. Will definitely be ordering more in the next couple days. Now I am even more excited to get this tank up and running!!
  • Likes and Dislikes By Kirby on 2/4/2016

    Firstly I love this rock really awesome with gaps in between, it creates a cave like atmosphare really cool....only dislike is that it didn't look as clean as image it had many black spots and alot of mildew buildup.
  • Great Rock, Great Price By dmolavi on 2/2/2016

    This rock is fantastic. Lots of nooks and crannies, and can be aquascaped into some pretty amazing formations. My fish, corals and CUC love darting in, out and through all the little crevices.
  • LOVE IT! By Jason on 1/29/2016

    Probably the best looking rock I have in my reef. Love all the caves and crevices for fish and inverts to hide in.
  • Amazing would absolutely buy again By Devin on 1/22/2016

    Got the rock a day or two ahead of schedule and i wasnt sure what to expect since it was my first time ordering a 20+ pukani rock i ordered 30 pounds and got 44 and boy i was blown away with the size of the rock and how beautiful it was. 10/10 would buy again
  • Big, Beautiful, and Lightweight. By razv on 1/19/2016

    I’ve purchased this rock before and just needed a big piece. I ordered 30lbs and requested that it only be one piece of rock and boy did BRS deliver. I received this huge rock which would easily weigh over 50lbs were it some other type of rock. I addition to getting an awesome piece, this new batch is MUCH cleaner than previous pieces I have received. I only had to manually remove very small pieces of algae prior to initiating the curing process, this will certainly speed things up. Overall, very happy.
  • Nice!!! By Samuel on 1/6/2016

    I think it's awesome and the fish seem too also!
