Is there any problem curing the rock in a new tank setup that has nothing it is as of yet? Should I just soak them first before they enter the tank?
Have a great day!

How much rock do I need?
Knowing exactly how much Dry Live Rock you will need can be one of the hardest questions to answer since every tank and rock will be slightly different. A general guideline for Pukani Dry Live Rock, we suggest 2/3 pounds of rock per gallon of display tank volume and may vary depending on your overall goal for the aquascape. We always recommend purchasing a little extra dry rock to ensure that you will have enough to complete the aquascape you are looking for, any extra rock can always be broken up and placed in your refugium, overflows, and sump for added filtration.
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.
Huge Rocks By Andrea on 6/25/2017Andrea would recommend this product to a friendLike others I ordered 30lbs and recieved one 42lb rock, it is massive! Just ordered 30 more lbs. the large chunks will help fill up my new 300gal :D
Great value By Wes on 6/19/2017Wes would recommend this product to a friendOrdered 30 pounds and received a single rock that measured 18x16x11" inches and weighed 42 pounds. Smaller than expected while heavier than expected but a good value for larger tanks. It will work well in my system, thanks BRS!
Large size By Omegared on 4/29/2017Omegared would recommend this product to a friendI recently purchased 30 lbs. of large pukani. I received one large rock of pukani. I have to say I wasn't expecting that. But after working on it with a hammer and chisel I have to say if you don't mind taking time to shape it. It's well worth the price.
