I ordered some of the single branch and got the bottom of the barrel and was very unhappy, BRS replaced the branch at no charge and it was some amazing, beautiful branch. Very happy and satisfied! will do more business in the future again for sure! thank you very much!

Ordered only a few pounds of tonga to accent pukani and was surprised by the large size as I was expecting thin brittle pieces. Lfs had tonga for 4 x the cost and didn't look nearly as good.

this stuff is heavy, but it gives the aquarium a unique look. I ordered 15 pounds and got 4 nice pieces. I probably should have gotten more. I used this as a supplement to my dry rock. Fast and very reasonable shipping.

I am setting up a new tank and ordered 10lbs of this to suppliment my initial layout of fiji... This was my first order from BRS, and I am very impressed. Packed extremely well, no broken peices. They gave me 2 large pieces with beautiful porous branches. It goes well against a fiji base. Will order more of this later.

I ordered the simple multi branching and got some great looking rock. It's a great mix of overall smooth and a couple pieces of twisted, gnarly looking rock. I'm not 100% sure how I'm going to incorporate it into my aquascape yet, but it should make it a lot more interesting!
Awesome By Andrew on 12/11/12

I ordered the simple multi branch rock and it is far from simple. I love the encrusted shells and great shape. It is a great piece to the aquascape.
Loved this Rock By Christine on 11/20/12

The pieces we got were awesome. I ordered all the rock for my tank from BRS and was able to make a great build. With the tonga, there were a few pieces that broke off, but I easily put them back together with some epoxy. The piece was so exquisite and intricate though that I do not think it could have been shipped any other way. They bubble wrap it and everything. I was a little nervous since this is the first time I was ordering rock from BRS, but I have no regrets and was 100% satisfied. I don't think I could have ever found pieces like this anywhere else and I am very picky. It was a great selection.

I ordered a large 20+" large BRS Tonga live rock and boy, was it beautiful! So beautiful that my local LFS wanted to come by and help me aquas-cape for free. I also ordered a large 20"+ shelf which was beautiful but so big that I had to take a hammer and break it. The complex multi branch is kinda misfit in the sense its still almost like a tree branch with a few divisive branches. As someone said in the reviews above, if your intention is to make a wall, these are not the best pieces to do it. These pieces look more like tree branch(es) that set your aquas-cape apart from every other aquarium out there. Very nice, clean, white, heavy but porous rock with no pests in it. I say no pests because the rock was so clean I put it directly into my tank with other live rock in it. I don't suggest you do that but its telling about how sparkling and good quality the rock comes in. I wish there was a way I could upload pictures or at least link to the pictures in here to show what a great buy this is.
I have one peeve though. Thank you BRS guys for packing the rock so well, it could have survived an earthquake! Nothing was broken but there were so many packing peanuts I had to use two weeks worth of recycle collection schedules for disposing them off. I don't really know if I should blame you guys for protecting my precious rock or blame California for their stupid recycling limits. :) But seriously, so much protection for a piece of dry rock? :)
Overall, this is a great product for those who want to introduce arches, tree like branches or just somethign different than plain simple stacking. would definitely recommend if you're into open aqua-scaping rather than croud-scaping.
Awesome! By loyalhero90 on 10/12/12

I have bought tonga from BRS twice and every time the rock was beautiful and just what I ordered. The rock was heavy but porous and was perfect to aquascape hills, caves or just really cool structures.
large heavy yet unique By Kengaroo131 on 10/4/12

i had ordered 10 pounds of the complex muti branch and i must say, it wasnt very complex, it looks alot more like the simple multi branch which isnt exactly what i was going for, i was expecting more of a few small branches with a unique pattern and received more or less a log of tonga. overall i made it work, not to crazy about it but it doesnt look terrible. this would be a great addition to a large aquarium with a decent amount of space in it, keep in mind it is near impossible to aquascape around it and make it look realistic. tonga is a great addition by itself for a unique look.
