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.
That Needed Touch By nokiaec11 on 1/8/2017nokiaec11 would recommend this product to a friendI ordered 30lbs, and asked that it be 1pc. when I received it it was much bigger than I thought would be; loved the rock at first glance. Since the rock is so porous it made it very easy to work with. I sawed a section to create the perfect base so the rock could stand on it's on as I wanted it to. I also chiseled a tunnel through a section that my fish love, and fight over it from time to time. The shape of the rock gave me the perfect overhang.

Beautiful Rock By Eskimo on 12/17/2016Eskimo would recommend this product to a friendBRS pukani never disappoints!
Great rock By RobertP on 12/15/2016RobertP would recommend this product to a friendOrdered 60 lbs because it is not as dense as other rocks. Got about 6 large rocks that are about 10 lbs each and worked perfectly.
Great rock, huge pieces By James on 11/28/2016James would recommend this product to a friendI ordered 100 pounds of this rock, it came in 2 roughly 50 pound boxes. Packed well. In each box was a single huge piece(18" x maybe 14"), a couple medium pieces, and several small pieces(large softball size-ish).
Great texture. I needed to chisel down one of the huge pieces so it could work with my 120, but I also had some other live rock from a local vendor. 100 pounds of this would have aquascaped my 120 quite well. I have several of the smaller pieces left over. Sounds like an excuse to start another tank if you ask me.
Great rock, very happy with it.

Best Dry Rock By Nick on 11/18/2016Nick would recommend this product to a friendBRS you guys are great! filled my order with my description of rocks perfectly, like you read my mind. This Rock is great because it is super easy to shape it the way you want and you get more rock because it is so light weight. Also I ordered this with standard free shipping and it arrived in 3 days, This is the best Hobbyist Fish Store to Order from!
Great product, just clean it first By obct537 on 11/14/2016obct537 would recommend this product to a friendOrdered 50 lbs of this recently. The shape and size of the pieces I received were great. It was a nice variety of pieces, none of them too small. The only problem I encountered (which was about 98% my fault) was that I didn't realize just how much dead/dry organic material was on the rock. So, in my brilliance I put the pieces straight into my tank, which proceeded to turn green, and stink for about a week.
