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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

Nice rock and packaged extremely well. Had a good mix of sizes and even a large shelf piece in my two boxes. Fortunately I have a large tank so I could handle the monster 25 pound piece that came in one box. Rock is pretty clean, needs a little rinsing but nothing major, has a nice color as well. Will be buying more.

Very little rubble in the box (some expected from shipping regardless) with a couple very nice large rocks to use as foundations and as an archway! Would definitely recommend!

Todd would recommend this product to a friend
I am new to reefing, and this is the first reef I have set up. This rock made aqua-scaping effortless! I was able to stack and re-stack until I found a set-up I liked. Then I glued them in place a few pieces at a time, before rearranging them in the tank and adding saltwater. I was provided with rock of various shapes and sizes which made setting them up in formation easy. Rock are porous and create lots of hiding places for creatures and fish. I would definitely use this product again on future reefs.
Great Addition for Your Tank By Jason on 1/7/2013

This is my first purchase of dry rock, and I have to say I am very pleased with the product. I ordered 50lbs, and it exceeded my expectations, both in quantity and diversity of the rock. It was very well packaged with hardly and breakage. Not sure if it was necessary or not, but as a precaution I did give it a bleach and acid bath prior to adding it, so can't speak to what effects it may have had just puttingit directly into the tank. Great product though, would buy again.

50# Dry rock By Gavin on 11/26/2012
Gavin would recommend this product to a friend
For the newbies like me.... I purchased one 50# box of dry rock and two 10# bags of rock rubble for my new 55 gal setup. I also have a 30 gal sump with a fug. Between the two bags and the box this was the perfect amount to make an interesting rocks-scape and have enough left over for the fuge. The rock was in excellent shape with lots of variation. One or two pieces were not as interesting but made for good base rock... the majority of them look fantastic. this made for a nice mix of base rock and display rock.
