Depending on the amount of rock you want in your tank, for the average aquascape we normally recommend anywhere from ¾ - 1 pound per gallon of the display tank. For your 215 gallon we would recommend to purchase right around 160 – 200 pounds of Pukani Dry Live Rock.
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.
Awesome By Fomoco on 9/16/2016Fomoco would recommend this product to a friendFirst time ordering from brs I ordered the rock monday and on my door step by friday in California! It was very well packaged put in a bag and then in a box full of peanut foam. Quality is great, I ordered 50 pounds and got 1 big piece that will be fun to work with and several medium to small pieces great selection. As far as size and coverage 50 pounds of pukani fills up a lot more room in the tank prepared to 50 pounds of a different rock, more bang for the buck. Great job BRS, you got another long term customer!
Best Rock Ever! By Mio on 9/16/2016Mio would recommend this product to a friendBeen doing this a while and I can honestly say that this is by far the best rock I've ever used. You do have to clean it and give it a good acid bath before you put it in your tank.
Great for aquascaping By James on 9/13/2016James would recommend this product to a friendI used a small chisel and hammer to create exactly the look i wanted for my 120 gallon reef tank. Very easy to work with and the rock is light weight so you get your money's worth. I only wish i had bought more.
40#'s of Pukani Rock By Greg on 9/8/2016Greg would recommend this product to a friendI recently purchased 40 pounds of Pukani for my very first reef tank. I was not sure what to order or even how much to order so I spent quite a bit of time on the phone with their staff. They helped me order the right amount as well as the sizes of rock I would need. When it arrived, there were no broken pieces and it was exactly as how they described it to me. Since that time, I have bleached it and am about to start the tank cycle. I could not be more pleased.
purchase of Pukani Rock By Henry on 9/7/2016Henry would recommend this product to a friendreceived my 55 lbs of Pukani Rock, They are were unbroken large and smaller rocks. They will make a nice display
Best value By John on 9/5/2016John would recommend this product to a friendThis is the best rock for the money and takes up 2-3 times more space than the fiji per pound. BRS also took consideration in sending me four different shaped rocks to fill my small order, which made aquascaping much easier. Stunning rock!
Great Buy So Far By John on 8/28/2016John would recommend this product to a friendI received about 4 large pieces and a few small ones. They came well packaged and looked great. They are curing now and I'm excited to see them in my tank.
Good Size By Jonathan on 8/17/2016Jonathan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI got this order and they came in good sizes. Really good for just starting off in the hobby.
Excellent Shipping and Product By Steelsoul on 8/15/2016Steelsoul wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered 25lbs, it came in a box and inside the box was Styrofoam lined and inside that was a heavy duty clear bag with the rock inside that. Shipping was very fast and all the rock arrived whole. You can use a hammer and a chisel to easily aquascape it and the rubble left after aquascaping works great for refugium substrate. Even tho this is labeled as Dry Live Rock, the key word is Live. There are sponges and other small debris in the tiny crevisis, you DO NEED to cure this rock or acid wash it and remove the sponges so they don't break down in your new tank set up. I will buy this again when doing a new tank and I highly recommend BRS for your live rock needs as their shipping/packaging tops all others!
IMO the BEST dry rock out there By SnowManSnow on 8/10/2016SnowManSnow wouldn't recommend this product to a friendwhat I love about this rock is the EASE with which you can shape it. This isn't rock you just pile into a giant stack against the back! Get some big chunks and sculpt whatever shape you want to make your reef awesome and open with great flow. HIGHLY recommended. I've used it on 3 tanks so far and will for the foreseeable future. ONE side note is that I ALWAYS acid wash it. It does ship with a lot of dead organics, and its just not stuff I want in my system.
NICE Rocks By Mark Steffen on 8/8/2016Mark Steffen wouldn't recommend this product to a friendOrdered 50 pounds of these and BRS packaged and sent some beautiful large and medium peices for my Reef Tank. They needed a good rinse as opposed to the Reef Saver Rocks, but they look great in my 180 gl tank.
Pukani Rock By Pat on 7/27/2016Pat would recommend this product to a friendI bought 50 lbs and it is outstandingly beautiful. One of the pieces is about 10 inches in diameter and will make a natural shelf. Thanks BRS.
