It's easy to look at the pictures of shelf rock with base and have and great a fantast box that you will most certainly receive, but I think the images are extremes to give the customer an idea of the basic structure. Usually the base isn't as well established or as long as what you see in the images. However, the shelves have some wonderful structures. Just remember that the box won't aquascape your tank for you. It's rock in the mail, folks. Take your time to think it through and you'll be happy with what you get in the end. :)

I ordered the 20+ plate and received a 26X20" plate. It worked out great in my tanks and was packed well and did not break.

These things are perfect! I ordered five pounds and received two nice size pieces. We love the shells that are in them and can't wait to get them in the tank.
Nice huge rock By StarFishMan on 3/30/2015

This was a large nice piece of rock. Got confused at first about you have to order qty 20 or more. Thought I might get 20 pieces. Even BETTER. One huge honkin heavy piece that will star to make a dent in my 180 tank. Now still need plenty more! Wonder what 50 qty would get me!

Ask and ye shall receive! Ordered 25lbs of tonga shelf with base, and 30lbs flat shelf. Asked for larger pieces...got larger pieces. Shelf with base got a couple prob 15" long, flat shelf got a few 12-15" in diameter. Pretty clean rock, few things to pick off with pliers. Very satisfied overall, thanks!

I purchased one large 20" + Shelf Rock and it arrived as a single super large shelf piece. It was packaged with great care which helped it survive the transport. I received exactly what I ordered and it was in perfect condition. It was so large that I decided to make several smaller pieces of shelf, but having the large piece to start from enabled me to chisel out smaller shelf pieces exactly to fit my needs. Extremely satisfied and happy with this purchase!
Great rock, but small in size By jent on 2/10/2015

I got 15lb's of the plates at $2.99. Sadly it was a bunch of small pieces of plate...The two largest pieces were only about 4in x 8in. Then I had TONS of small pieces that were closer to 2in x 4in. I am a bit disapointed because I was hoping to make a shelf around 12in, and I just don't see how I will be able to do that given the many, but small, pieces I got.
Ultimately I will probably use the two largest pieces, a couple of the small pieces, and the rest will go into the sump or trash. I sadly don't think I will be able to use most of it.

I can't believe how many more options this shelf rock gives me. I have made two separate orders. Both orders they were really generous with the rock and gave me what I asked for in the comments. I did notice some breakage when it got to me but that is easy to fix with putty and even allowed me greater options.
Exactly what I had in mind By bl95 on 2/1/2015

Didn't know what to expect and wasn't sure how much I needed. Left a comment with a request for 2 equal sized pieces for the tank (RSM C130) I was putting them in. Got just what I asked for and they look great in the tank with the Fiji Live Rock! Very Nice.
Great Quality By MKaplan on 1/20/2015

This is some seriously nifty rock, but I'll caution you. The pieces are big! For most people that's not an issue, but in my 60gal bow, the 2 plates I got will *just* barely fit.
Still I'm amazingly happy. Great to find some nice shelf with bases.
Might Be Better to Go Local To Pick Your Own Pieces By Andrew on 1/12/2015

The two jumbo pieces I received were very large and had very little damage from shipping.
One piece was extremely thick, so it weighed a lot and didn't really end up being a good value. That same piece also smelled pretty bad. It was pretty clear that this piece was still in the process of rotting and wasn't clean like the thinner piece.
The other piece was thinner and was more decorative.
In retrospect, I might had a better experience picking live pieces locally than ordering these dead pieces online. The locally available shelf pieces are much, much thinner and are alive, so they are already purple and have a lot of interesting life.
