Good but By David on 9/14/2014David would recommend this product to a friendGood quality rock, just make sure you say if the rock is for a nano tank. Im assuming they will give you smaller pieces. I made the mistake and didnt say anything, ended up getting x2 massive boulders for a 38 gallon tank.
Great rock By Devin on 9/10/2014Devin would recommend this product to a friendEasy to aquascape! looks great!
good quality By Chris in KC on 8/28/2014Chris in KC would recommend this product to a friendthis rock looks just like it came out of the ocean ... all i had to do was hose it down for a minute ... will buy more when i start my bigger tank i am planning.
You don't really get what you pay for... By Jordan R on 8/23/2014Jordan R would recommend this product to a friendYou get something with MUCH more quality than you expect for the price it's listed at.
First the rock comes packaged VERY well. It was in a thick plastic bag with a really strong twist tie to keep everything secure. I only found a centimeter-long tear along a seam and that was extremely surprising considering the porous and unique structure of this rock. It arrived in a sturdy shipping box FILLED with peanuts which protected the rocks from becoming rubble. Out of ten pounds I MAYBE had half of a cups worth of rubble/dust.
It has holes and ‘hide-aways’ all over every single piece. I actually took a screw driver and made more holes by just poking through the thin walls of the existing holes/ caves and it looks even better which is hard to believe! It was dusty, which is to be expected from dry rock, but washed away in a few light rinses of RODI water. The pieces I ordered for my 10G AIO were a little bigger than I had expected but that same fact proved to work in my favor. I needed baseball sized pieces to make archways/’cliffs’ and I received 2 pieces slightly larger than a softball and smaller baseball size pieces. When I went to break up the softball sized pieces they came apart in the perfect arches/unique shapes I was envisioning.
I did not have any BRS customer service issues with this order whatsoever. The ordering process was a breeze, the packaging was tip-top for ‘a box of rocks’, they gave me more than I had ordered (10lbs but package said 12.1lbs), and finally the quality to price ratio is out of this world with this product. I can’t WAIT to give BRS my money next time I’m in need. Thanks y’all!
Did I get your attention? By Gotcha on 8/17/2014Gotcha would recommend this product to a friendGood! Because this rock is epic!
Best Dry Rock Around By Kelly on 8/11/2014Kelly would recommend this product to a friendWhen I picked up my order of rock, I was surprised that there were little rubble pieces. The rock was VERY pourus and light. Plus it is very easy to work with if you want to be creative with sculpting. Well worth it for the price.
Perfect Rock By Greg on 8/11/2014Greg would recommend this product to a friendSure you can get shelf rock or Tonga branch or whatever. But you'll still need a base. This rock fits the mold for both base and a full out aquascape. Cycling the rock was fast and I haven't seen any PO4 leaching. If I have any complaint it's the amount of rubble that was in the box. But I saw the warning and knew to expect some so I ordered 5lbs extra for insurance.
Great Value By Felix on 8/1/2014Felix would recommend this product to a friendUsed this to start a 65g last october. It comes in great large sizes which can be broken down and shaped to your liking. Stacks great and kind of interlocks with each other.
Nice Base Rock By Chris on 7/22/2014Chris would recommend this product to a friendMake sure you cure this before adding to your system if it's going into an established one. I would recommend curing for about 2 weeks longer than you think you should. I cooked this rock in heated salt water for about a month and it wasn't quite enough when i added it to my system.
Easy to aquascape.... very porous.... lots of hiding places for critters.
Good rock. By A on 7/15/2014A would recommend this product to a friendIt is a good way to reduce pests. I am not sure why people fight with live rock so much.
awesome rock By John on 7/11/2014John would recommend this product to a friendI just bought 30 pounds of Reef Saver and I can't wait to put it in a tank. I got more rock than I thought I would. I am very pleased with it.
Excellent Rock, but Rubble order not needed By Neil on 6/26/2014Neil would recommend this product to a friendI received 75 lbs of Reef Saver for my 75 gal tank. I also received the 10 lbs of rubble that I thought that I would need after watching a video on the Reef Saver and talking to a Customer Rep. Well, as it turns out, there must have been enough pieces broken off during shipping (note inside of shipment stated this may happen) that I didn't need the rubble. I had enough pieces in the main shipment to fill in any areas that I thought needed it. So, you may not want to waste your money on the rubble as I did. I really like the Reef Save rock as it fits together nicely. The recommended 1 lb/gal was just right for me.

I'm setting up a 35 gallon 20inX20in cube, out of the three pukani, reef saver or Fiji which offers the smaller pieces my tank requires for me to get the best results aquascaping? Thanks!
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Kyle,
Fiji and Reef Saver offer the smallest size pieces. Personally I prefer reefsaver in these types of situations as it is really easy to stack and create your aquascape.
by john on September 1, 2013, @3:53 AM
do you need to cure reef saver rock the same as you would live rock or is it fairly free of organics?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey John,
We would advise cycling any type rock from any source because it just isn't worth the risk of your live stock not too. As far as the rock goes though, the reef saver is by far the cleanest of any of the rocks right off the bat.
by Steve on September 5, 2013, @6:11 PM
Is the price shown here the price per pound? Thanks.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Steve,
Yes the rock is sold by the pound, so the quantity you enter in the quantity field is the number of pounds you are ordering.

Howdy y'all, I've seen the video of Ryan chiseling and cutting the Pukani rock. Is the Reef Saver rock as easy to manipulate and cut? Thank you!
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Blake,
The Reef Saver rock is much harder and not nearly as easy to manipulate. If you want to chisel out caves and the like I would highly recommend going with the pukani :-)
by Diana on October 3, 2013, @10:52 AM
if I order 50 does that mean 50bls?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Diana,
Yes this product is sold by the pound, so the quantity that you order is the number of pounds that you are ordering.

What is the recommended amount of rock per gallon? I'm aquascaping a JBJ 28 LED tank. thanks!
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Chris,
We recommend a pound per gallon as a good ballpark place to start. It will give a nice middle of the road aqua-scape and is what most folks are looking for!
by Calvin on April 23, 2014, @3:37 AM
I am starting a new tank with the Reef Saver Dry Live Rock and Caribsea Arag-Alive Fiji pink sand. Should I start the cycle with the sand first while I cure the rock and add the rock later? Or can I start the cycle with both the sand and rock? What is your recommendation?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Calvin,
If your going to cycle the rock in the tank, I would just do your aquascape, add the sand, add the water, and then let the whole system cycle together.

Do you ship reef saver rocks to Canada? Your website says no tonga, pukari etc.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Leo,
Yes the reef saver rock can be shipped to Canada.
BRS Reef Saver Dry Aquarium Live Rock can be shipped to Canada.
BRS Reef Saver Dry Aquarium Live Rock, our environmentally friendly rock, works great for aquascaping. This rock is 100% free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs and 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. BRS Reef Saver rock comes in unique shapes that fit well together to make interesting and unique structures. BRS Reef Saver Rock arrives at our warehouse pre-soaked and rinsed. This is by far our cleanest rock.
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.
Deal of the Day!
