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.

  • Phosphates and more Phosphates By Kai on 7/27/2015

    I bought this rock about two years ago I loved it at the time lots of hiding and caves and cool holes and pieces but after the first year my phosphates started climbing and climbing and I could not find the culprit, so one of my friends told me the dead organism decay well after curing the rock. So the next month o bought 120 LB of reef saver rock and switched it out after the first week my phosphates started diminishing and within 6 month I had absolutely no phosphates. so please avoid this rock!
  • Pukani rock. Amazing By will from ct on 7/27/2015

    The Pukani is the best highly recommended
    Easy to aquascape and lowest sizt to weight ratio
    Highly recommended .
  • VERY NICE!! By TONY Tank on 7/20/2015

    I am using a mix of rock for my new tank, but if I did it over I would have gone all PUKANI. Very light. Tons of surface area, nooks and crannies.
  • Interesting shapes, lightweight, easy to work with By Evan on 7/18/2015

    Over the course of several orders, I've gotten a wide variety of different and interesting shapes. If that's not enough, I've also found it incredibly easy to modify this rock to my liking. Hammer and chisel works well, as does as drill -- BRS has a good video on that.

    And for those extra big pieces, if I'm completely lost, I've had some good luck dropping this rock off my porch onto concrete. ;-)
  • Pukani dry live rock highly recomended By William on 6/27/2015

    The Punjabi rock from BRS is very impressive , I order 30 lbs and it is a lot of rock due to its light weight compared to other rock the nooks,holes , and radon shapes of the pukani is unlike any dry live or wet live to I I have ever seen ..I love it .
  • Gigantic Showpiece and many nice medium sized pieces. By Doug Ahern on 6/25/2015

    Received my Pukani order today and was thrilled about the 17" showpiece the came with my 50 pound order. The other accompanying are very nice also there are 6 Medium and 6 smaller pieces. All very good with little breakage. Very pleased.
  • Best Rock By JT on 6/23/2015

    This rock is very porous and come in some very interesting shapes. It was fairly easy to put together a number of aquascape options that looked great. Provided a drawing and list of sizes desired and got what was specified.
  • Amazing rock By Evelio on 6/16/2015

    I purchased this rock type for the first time a few months ago. I have to say that the pieces received were just spectacular.
  • Super light By Ray on 6/12/2015

    Received several large pieces. Arrived in great shape with very little breakage. Rock is very low density. One pound per gallon will stuff your aquarium.
  • Great rock By Ray on 6/12/2015

    Lots of large pieces. Very low density. One pound per gallon will stuff your aquarium.
  • great rock By Redick on 6/11/2015

    This is amazing looking rock. It is very light and porous. It arrived and is exactly as BRS described.
  • Great rock can't go wrong! By Kyle on 6/7/2015

    I order 65 pounds of this rock and was very please with the product that showed up. They shipped it in 2 boxes instead of one to make it easier to manage. Also the free shipping was a added plus. The one downside to pukani is you need to cure this rock probably especially if adding the rock to an already established tank. Due to the porous structure of the rock many critters and organics are still left behind from the drying process and need to be properly remove or you will leach nutrients into your tank. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase from BRS.
