Quick Overview

Sold by the pound

Why does BRS recommend this?

BRS Pukani Rock is by far our customer’s favorite rock. It fills the most volume per pound compared to other styles of rock, with tons of nooks and crannies for corals to be placed and small critters to hide out.  BRS Pukani Rock is pest and algae free to give the best start for any new tank.  It also has the ability to be shaped, drilled, or cut depending on the aquascape it will be used with.

Unable to ship to Canada

Pukani is available in a wide variety of sizes.

  • BRS Pukani Dry Live Rock is generally less than 20" in diameter. Sold by the pound with no minimum order.


BRS recommends curing all rock before being used in an established system

Product Questions

I noticed the jumbo pieces are out of stock. What is the biggest size in inches do these come in? I am aquascaping a 440 gallon tank and really want jumbo large pieces. Can I request bigger pieces here or should I wait till the jumbo Pukani rock is in stock?
Question by: melvin yip on Nov 7, 2016 12:25:00 PM
Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us! Our larger 20"+ sized pieces vary quite often, depending on the shipments we get. We typically recommend adding requirements for the sizes you are looking for in the comments section of your order. Sizes that are larger than 20"-25" are fairly far and few between. :-)

How much Pukani dry rock will I need for 215 Gallon aquarium?
Question by: Roger on Jul 11, 2016 7:59:00 PM
Hi Roger,
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.

Full Details

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.

  • Great rock, huge pieces By James on 11/28/2016

    I 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.
  • Perfect Rock By David on 11/27/2016

    Perfect rock, nicely packaged, and great shape to work with.
  • Highest quality rock By John M on 11/22/2016

    Highest quality rock I have ever bought. I received my shipment and it was packed very carefully. The pieces range from large to medium size. My order exceeded my expectations. Great job BRS.
  • Best Dry Rock By Nick on 11/18/2016

    BRS 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 11/14/2016

    Ordered 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.
  • great By Anthony on 11/12/2016

    Okay, so i got 200lbs of pukani, I asked for large pieces and got exactly what I wanted. I had to buy another 50 of small stuff to make my reefscape beter.
  • Great stuff very porous. By Mal on 10/31/2016

    This is great stuff very porous. The Pukani is way more porous than the reef saver(I got some of both) It's pretty dirty but just make sure to cure really well and it's perfect!
  • Great value By Hambone on 10/7/2016

    Great stuff
  • Awesome By Fomoco on 9/16/2016

    First 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 9/16/2016

    Been 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 9/13/2016

    I 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 9/8/2016

    I 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.
