obviously selected with care By b-christopher on 10/5/2014

My order was very well packaged and the rock arrived on time, and in pristine condition.
My first thought was that this order was obviously selected with care. I received an excellent mix of shapes (from good, round base rock to flat and arched pieces) and sizes (from the ever popular "softball sized" to a 10+ lb flat shelf). The rock has a great variety of textures, and everything looks very porous.
I am extremely satisfied with my order. If you are on the fence, I suggest you trust the majority of reviews and strongly consider a purchase.
It's obvious to me that the person putting together my order choose the rock they would have picked for their own tank - that's the best I could have hoped for, and beyond what I expected.

I ordered this product on July 3rd and just got it today. With all the reviews being mixed I was eager to see what I was gonna be receiving. my order was packed very well and handled properly to my surprise I work for a shipping company very little damage maybe a handful of ruble the rock I received was better than I was expecting got a huge piece with a tunnel running through it the smallest piece was the size of a softball I can't wait to aqua scape my 150 tall dt do yourself a favor and order this you won't be disappointed
Only good for sump By Paul on 6/26/2014
Paul wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I wouldn't waste my money. I have 50 pounds of dry rock ruble. The largest piece is the size of a soft ball. I went off BRS's overview and it is totally incorrect. The only way possible to aquascape is to have a pile of rubble, so if you consider that aquascapeing then I guess it would be the easiest to aquascape with. This is the only purchase I've been disappointed with from BRS. I will continue to use Marco rock. You actually get pieces you can aquascape with.
A great deal By friartuck on 6/7/2014

Ordered this 50lb box. Got a little more than that (thanks BRS!) Got several huge pieces, some mid sized and a few smaller. Was exactly what I needed for my 50g tank set up. I've had a ton of issues with wet live rock- nudis, aiptasia, other assorted horrors. This rock appealed to me because I didn't have to worry about that stuff one bit. The rock came pretty clean too. I thought having to cure it would be a bummer- but as per BRS's recommendation- I put a little BioSpira in and the rocks cycled nicely.
Great value By Nicholas on 5/30/2014

This is a great value. Can't beat the price compared to LFS.
I was really happy with the purchase. After I ordered I was concerned about the pieces I would receive. The pieces came in unbroken and a nice mix of different shapes and sizes. There was even some coloring on the rocks that looks like it will come back to life in my tank.
Only thing I would have liked to see is some longer, flatter pieces to make more overhangs.

Not what I expected By Ryan on 4/18/2014
Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I bought 100 lbs of this stuff and 90% of the rocks are the size of a softball. I probably got 1 piece the size of a football and the rest is small pieces. No way to make bridges or three islands across the tanks, basically a mound of rock in the back half of the tank. This is the first purchase from BRS that I have been disappointed with.

Base rock By Paul on 4/1/2014

Package came well protected but there were a few small pieces that are useless. Most of the rock is ok and is only usable as base rock.

Getting ready to setup a second tank with Bulk Fiji rock. Always surprised by the nice selection of rocks that are included in the bulk box.
Exactly What Was Promised. By JJRaws on 1/13/2014
JJRaws would recommend this product to a friend
This product arrived exactly as I had hoped. There were roughly 10-12 pieces of smaller to medium size rock. There rock didn't have much dead/dried life to remove which saved me time for prepping the cure. I received a lot of unique pieces and some not so unique pieces for base rock. Overall, I would recommend and was happy with what arrived.

I ordered 150 pounds and for some amazing rocks. There were little to no breaks in the rock. I have it all curing now.
Great Looking, but 2 pieces = 50 lbs By Bert on 12/12/2013
Bert would recommend this product to a friend
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
Kristopher would recommend this product to a friend
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.

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.
