I ordered about 20lbs and the rock arrived in great shape. I got some large and interesting structures with multiple braches. The rock is extremely porous so should work great for filtration. It is a little heavy but not excessively. Overall, this is a great product for branch rock lovers.

I ordered some of all three types as well as one large piece. The pictures here are fairly accurate. They didn't look exactly like the photos but the general concept is there. Most people are certainly going to want the muti and complex branch, I don't know what I am going to do with the singles. Stuff is pretty heavy and dense so consider that when ordering. I am not really sure how I am going to use these pieces but they are really interesting. The large one i am going to use in my fish only system, this will add some structure while leaving a maximum amount of swimming area. They were packaged really well but you could tell some of the arms had broken off prior to shipping (there were no broken fragments in the box) . My guess is this is inevitable during transport from tonga to the states and why they sell the single branches. Only reason I gave it four stars is I think most people who are using rock like this have a really good idea of what they want and without seeing it in person it is hard to know what you are going to get like you can at a store. Guess I would still prefer the mystery rather than pay $10 a pound at the fish store. Paying $100 for a 10 pound rock is pretty hard. While I have a store around here that does have a few pieces on hand it isn't like they have a large selection anyways.

I was skeptical ordering online because of not being able to see it first. I ordered a little to give it a try but I was dissappointed. Pieces arrived with most braches broke off, not what I was hoping for.
