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.
Great Rock By Nathan on 2/3/2015

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.

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.

So, at first when I ordered I did not know what it was I was going to get. When it first came in I was not all that excited that there was half of a clam stuck to one side and was freaking white. BUT after placing it in my tank, the clam is hidden and it makes a wonderful addition to my tank! Its been in my tank for three months now and is picking up a wonderful color and growing coraline on it. AMAZING addition to my tank!

I ordered the 20"+, Shelf and shelf with base and it was amazing looking. Created beautiful overhangs. I have never been happier with my Aquascape.
Good natural shelf rock. By Rock Tycoon on 11/7/2014
Rock Tycoon would recommend this product to a friend
This is pretty good rock. It is a coral skeleton that varies in porosity. They sent me some pretty interesting pieces of varying shapes and sizes. Some were nicer than others but that is how nature is. I was surprised at how large one piece was. Highly recommended.

Tonga Shelf Dry Rock is Fantastic! By Brad on 9/12/2014

I ordered 15 lbs and asked 2 of the pieces be within certain dimensions. I received 17 lbs of rock, got the 2 pieces I needed, and then some! Its really attractive in the aquarium.
Unique looking product By Keith on 9/4/2014

I added a piece of Tonga shelf rock with base to my recent tank build. I wouldn't go crazy with too many pieces, but they make great accents. Also, keep in mind that they do block light under them so try and keep them lower in the tank if you are building a reef tank. I would also suggest having a rod handy to support them as it is difficult to stand them on their own. I drilled mine into a heavier base rock using an acrylic rod.
horrible packing By tb5663 on 8/29/2014
tb5663 would recommend this product to a friend
With shipping this cost me about 4.00 per lbs so it's not too terrible price for dry rock? I ordered two shelfs preferable oblong. I got 6 pcs. All rock was put in one bag, placed at bottom of cardboard box and then peanuts were filled in on top. There was nothing between each rock and nothing between bottom of box and rocks. No writing on box like 'breakable or fragile or handle with care'. So don't complain if you got one solid large pc. that don't sit up like you want it. I may use two out of the 6 I got and toss the rest in the yard. So actually for what I would use this really costs more than 4.00 per lb. Never again.

I ordered a few small pieces to see what they're like since i'm planning to upgrade my tanks soon. One of the pieces of shelf rock was a really nice piece. Others were just blah and will have to be used in the sump. Still, the price is right for what I got. I just prefer to pick out rock myself.

We ordered the tonga shelf to make a few shelves in the rock work for the new tank. It is just what we wanted and pretty much the right sizes. I cant wait to get the rock cured and an aquascape designed for the tank. Thanks again bulk reef.

Guess if you do not see it don't buy it !!!! I left dimensions of my tank and got a rock that would never fit in my tank and had little to no base when I asked for taller smaller pieces. Very disappointed in the order 80 bucks to brake a huge rock is just not good
Nice pieces!! I described what I was looking for and BRS got it right! By MatraD on 4/8/2014

Nice flat shelf tonga, some had more texture than others - which is ok, it will eventually be covered. I put in a few specifics on what I was looking for - and they hit it perfect. Nice size pieces, and I almost feel like they threw an extra piece in there because it was easier than making exact weight, but could be wrong. You can also break these pieces to fit what you need. Great looking addition to any reef tank and blends in well with my Fiji rock.
Perfect piece By Paul on 4/1/2014

I had reservations about ordering online as I could not see the pieces. and was very particular about what I was looking for. My piece arrived today, and its perfect. It was a completely porous piece, of the requested thickness and minimal size. The piece they found was actually 1 lb less than what I ordered, but thats ok cause it was larger than I expected. Many thanks to ACA, who rummaged though all the available pieces and found this one to match my request.

I ordered 20lb of this and got 1 massive shelf. So big so it will definitely have to be altered in order to fit in my tank. Which is actually sad because by its an amazing piece, I thought I was going toget 2 shelves thats the only reason I didn't rate it higher. 1 drimel tool later and I have 3 much smaller shelves and a large base piece allIis right in the world.
