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 Tonga Shelf Dry Live Rock, we suggest 1 pound 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.
Picking: When ordering rock any notes for size, shape, or concerns can be left in the "Order Comments" field during check-out step #3. Our picking department will do the best to follow the notes on the order.
Shipping: Tonga Shelf can be fragile. BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Tonga Shelf. However, we have no control how UPS handles it and it may break during shipping. Unfortunately, this is not covered by insurance so we are unable to replace broken pieces.
Dry live rock is not available for shipment to Canada due to high tariffs. Please consider Reef Saver rock as this is not subject to these fees and our favorite of the dry rocks available.

Not as I had hoped By Dennis on 2/22/2017Dennis would recommend this product to a friendFirst the good news.. the packing was spot on and very nicely boxed. I had asked for the longest base possible and I guess one to one and a half inches was long to them and I was disappointed in that regard but overall a 3 out of 5 is about right for the rest of the rock features. I was expecting a much different look after viewing the pictures on this site.
Very happy with my purchase By Carlo on 2/6/2017Carlo would recommend this product to a friendHuge piece for the money. Very impressive packaging and weighed more than what I paid for. Thanks BRS!
Thanks BRS By ZN on 12/26/2016ZN would recommend this product to a friendOrdered this item and I expected to get several small pieces and I was ready to just pick out the one I liked the best for my scape. When I opened the box I could tell right away that they cared about their packing. The way it was boxed there was no way anything could break. I also noticed that instead of getting several smaller pieces it came as one AMAZING piece. I will be redoing my scape with this piece as the focus. I know I got exactly what I wanted but if you are wanting smaller rocks I suggest you let them know. The rock was also about 5 more lbs than what I ordered. If I picked out this rock myself I would of been willing to pay more money than what I paid.
