I ordered 100lbs for a new 100 gallon I am upgrading to from a 50 gallon I have had for a while. I am currently starting the curing process using muradic acid. After research I feel this will be the best way to get off the dead stuff. The product was well packed and some holes in the boxes, but it is 50lbs coming from MN to the west coast. ;-) I received it in the 3 business days as well.
A good selection of rocks By Erik on 9/27/2016

I ordered 100 pounds of this rock to add to my already existing 400 gallon system. I had some nice large pieces and only 1 "rubble" size piece. The reason I am giving this 4 stars is there is a lot of dead sea creatures on this rock, I pressure washed the rock to knock off as many dead creatures as possible and pulled out some surprising large sponges.
I put all the rock in a container with saltwater and about another 20 pounds of live rock from my sump turned on the pump.
I hope that it will be for ready to add to the display tank in about a month.

This rock was better than I expected. I know a lot of dry live rock is just picked over smaller pieces, this was not the case for this rock. This rock was all very large in size with some small pieces also. Great product highly suggest to everyone!

I bought 2 50 pound boxes for my 120 Gallon Reef tank. I was expecting small and medium pieces, but I got a really nice assortment of sizes. Everything from huge to around softball size, no rubble. The rock arrived in great shape, and far exceeded my expectations. The 100 pounds that I got would have probably been 150+ pounds had it been live rock, but with the cheaper price, not paying for the water soaked into the rock, and the fact that you get no bad hitchhikers this is absolutely the way to go.
Like BRS shows in their BRS TV Videos, you need to cure this rock. It was taken out of the ocean and the things living in it died. So when you get it make sure you cure it in saltwater with a pump and heater. That will allow all of the dead organic material break down into ammonia and phosphate. Then move it to your display tank, and you have some amazing live rock for less than 1/2 the price.
Semi-dead rock; 3.5 stars By Philip on 6/17/2016
Philip would recommend this product to a friend
The dead rock is not completely dead and will have very strong dead ocean smell. You will need to cure by removing decaying material. I chose to cure rocks and cycle new tank together; regret because dead rock came with tons of ammonia, for 3.5 months ammonia, nitrite and nitrate were all too high to measure. Once ammonia & nitrite hit zero, nitrate was beyond sky high. On plus side feel it came with good selection of small and large pieces. Cure this rock well!
Good for the price By Tom on 5/3/2016

It's mainly large chunks if you're looking for small or medium pieces this might not be the best choice
Great Rock at a Great Price By Salty on 4/13/2016

At first I was skeptical about the condition the rock would be after being shipped. Once I opened the box my worries were gone. The rocks were packaged in a large plastic bag and then surrounded by tons of packing peanuts. I had a great variety of large, medium and small rocks. For 50lbs of rock shipped, I had less than a handful of rubble in the bag. I would definitely recommend this product.
Very Nice By Kirk on 3/17/2016

I am new to the hobby. My wife bought me a 55 gal. tank and said here's your saltwater tank enjoy. Little did she know what it was going to cost. I looked for reasonably priced rock that I could use to aquascape my tank with and decided on 50 lbs. of fiji and 10 lbs of pukani live dry rock. I did a 10 day cure using bio-spira and after the tank cycled I started adding rock 3 pieces at a time. I'm not a very patient man, but with the 5 live rocks and 40 lbs. of live sand already established it worked out well as I have not lost any of my livestock in the tank. The rock was very nice, stacks well and the colors are already awe inspiring not only to my wife but to my grandchildren. I originally had T5 lighting but the wife bought me 2 prime lights for better lighting. The pukani rock needed to cure a little longer and be cleaned off 3 times before it was ready but it was worth it. I would highly recommend BRS for any and all your reef and rock needs. Shipping was on time, rock was well packaged with very little shed or breakage. I now have natural looking bridges and caves. The Wife is pushing me to start a 250 gal. tank as a divider between our living room and bedroom. With shipping it worked out to be about $2.78 a pound. Great value!
