Great Looking, but 2 pieces = 50 lbs By Bert on 12/12/2013

Love the look and complexity of this rock and appreciate the discount getting a "50 lb box", but I literally received 2 pieces -- one about 35 lbs that is so big I'm going to have to figure out how to create smaller pieces from it. The second piece is WONDERFULLY complex. I think the net is, if I were to do it again, I'd pay the little extra per pound and have it hand selected to more match usable sizes that I received from BRS with my Tonga Shelf, Single Branch and Complex Multi-Branch.
Exceptionally well packaged and great selection By shane on 11/27/2013

I was completely surprised when I found the box on the steps. It is a heavy cardboard box packed full of foam peanuts around a plastic bag containing the rock. Almost no rubble in the bag means there was no damage and the rock selection was great.
Epic Buy By Kristopher on 11/25/2013

The rock at my lfs is well over $6 a pound, and its not even fully cured yet. Im still fighting an algal bloom caused by their supposed "Fully cured rock". I decided to take it upon myself and order this package and cure the rock myself, and its magnificent.
Three weeks in a 50 gallon rubbermaid container with water changed every two days and in five short weeks I had 0 phosphates in the water and another two weeks in once seeded, and the entire collection has coralline algae pock marking the entire surface. Coupled with the reef rubble (also cured and seeded) and I way more than enough to fill my newest 70 gallon reef tank and sump.
The rock itself came in various shapes and sizes with lots of caverns, holes and an overall nice porousity and hand weight. Good mix of shapes and sizes, with a few large pieces that would not fit into a smaller tank - though these can easily be broken with a hammer/chisel, or put into a bag and smashed on the concrete floor.
Either way, Epic buy all the way around. Thanks BRS!
Mostly good By Nick on 11/19/2013

Got a lot of good looking pieces with great shapes, but then also got two almost round boulders that were about 10lbs each. Can't do much with those which take away somewhat from the quality of the other pieces.
I know it thats the deal with the bulk box and ordering online, but still a bit disappointed.

Nice assortment in box gives me a good palate to work with.
Shipping in a couple of days was great and free shipping was a great bonus.

I don't live close to a lfs that carries marine stock and couldn't really justify buying live rock with over priced shipping and only receive a couple useable rocks. So I tried this dry rock and received way more rock and better shape rock with no hitch hikers. I have waited a long while before this review just to make a honest evaluation cost vs. benefits. To say the least this was a good move. I was not in a hurry to get fish or corals just yet b/c I was new to reef tanks so I seeded my tank width coralline algae and let it cycle. Turned out better than I expected, now I have nice healthy live rock with no pests. I still have to mail order live stock but starting with good live rock I think is one of the keys to getting started right. I'm still learning and trying to decide where to get some of my live stock but so far I have done well with my first salt water tank. I also just reviewed the pink alive Fiji sand so both have worked great.

good, but cure it before using By chee on 5/14/2013
chee would recommend this product to a friend
have heard some people make the mistake of putting this directly in the tank. that will cause a phosphate spike. be sure to cure it first.
some of the pieces were larger than i would have liked. i wish there was the ability to specify sizes. the description is confusing about this:
"We cannot take size requests. Please order BRS Bulk Fiji Dry Live Rock for specific sizes."
still, overall it was a good buy.

Everybody nailed it with their reviews! By Randy on 4/23/2013

The reviews were the selling point for me. Nothing like ordering 150lb of rock to be delivered to your doorstep and not like any of it, right? GREAT stuff! Great variety of sizes and shapes that made scaping easy! For some reason this was the hardest thing for me to pull the trigger on setting up a new tank (you're essentially stuck with it, I felt)... So happy with it!
Best dry rock By Awais on 4/18/2013

I bough this for my new 120g. The are strong and still so porous with so many holes, the volume it covers is like 80 lbs of other rock. Seriously.
I love this rock. And if you tell them what size you need, they will happily pack it for you

Bulk Fiji Live rock Rocks! By Christian on 3/21/2013

I bought 100lbs of this rock -- 50lbs for myself, and 50lbs for my father for his birthday.
I must say, this love rock is awesome. I had very little rubble/dust, and alot of unique size and shapes to work with. The BRS tutorials on Aqua Scaping are also invaluable, they were great at helping me setup my tank.

I loved the quality of this product, and when you spend enough, the shipping is free. I was very happy about that. There is some corraline algae as well which surprised me! The pieces are huge! Looking back, I definitely wish I would've cut some of them up before I put them in the tank.

I bought this 50lb. box for my 40 gallon acrylic tank with a 17 gallon sump. This rock looks amazing in my tank and I even had extra to put in the sump in the refuge. The rock looks amazing and the shapes were awesome! Great product definetly buy, rock is pretty dense so 1lb per gallon would be perfect for any tank.
