Best rock for reef aquarium By Mike on 3/29/2015

The only rock I would ever use and any of my aquariums extremely easy to Aqua scape also very lite so you get more bang for your buck. Very porous so critters have room to crawl in and out as well as great placement for corals
Love this rock!! By epidemiolo on 3/26/2015

I was amazed by how much rock I got. I ordered 15 lbs but it looks more like 25. This is great rock for a number of reasons. 1. Because of the ratio of the volume to weight you get more bang for your buck. (2) The rock has lots of nice places for your live stock to call home. Great rock for us newbies on a tight budget. The rock is a dirty but I expected that based on other reviews I read before purchasing. Planning on either a muriatic acid or vinegar wash and a few weeks soaking in saltwater before throwing it in my new tank. All in all I am very happy with this purchase.
Quality and Processing Pukani By Chief on 3/23/2015

I received my one 10 pound piece of Pukani. The way it was cut was great and it fits super in one corner of my 65 gallon. I would recommend this type rock over any other. As we know, saltwater tanks are work. Cleaning this rock is work but the result of its view is outstanding. I spoaked it in Vinigar watere for five hours. Used a tooth brush and cleaned it off as well at the dead critters within the rock. Rinsed and flushed it in RO and it is white. Take time to clean this rock and the benefits are outstanding. This is the ocean. My rock was delivered at my home within four days. Who ever packed the rock picked a very nice form. This is the only rock I will ever use.

Great rock at a great price, it is for sure bigger than what I expected , that turned out not to be a problem for me. I do think you should talk to someone to manage expectations on size and weight before you buy. BRS staff is helpful and I will buy again if I needed to. overall it is clean not much dead matter. I am happy

The Perfect Natural Rock By Palmetto Reefer on 3/11/2015

I ordered only 20 lbs. of Pukani Dry Rock to add to my other rock as I was in the process of upgrading from a 90 gal. to a 135 gal. I requested large pieces and received exactly that. I received one piece that was approximately 20" x 8" x 8". I level up one end and now I have this awesome natural tower that has tons of natural small caves for fish to hide in. I received another fairly large rock that was very light weight and extremely porous which is exactly what I wanted. Could not be happier with my purchase...Received exactly what I was looking for, Awesome!

The rock delivered was fantastic! We are trying to build a tank not dominated by one specific rock, and ordered 16 lbs pukani for an accent and base. We will definitely order more. The size and varied shapes were fantastic. Kudos to BRS for the way they sort and pick what is sent out, they obviously care about what we as their customer get. Very impressed by their standards and have gained my respect and future business.
Super Duper A+ Rock By Bryan on 3/3/2015
Bryan would recommend this product to a friend
This was my first experience with dry Pukani rock. I am setting up a 200g deep dimension reef so I ordered 120 pounds to start with. The pieces are awesome. Excellent shapes, and I cannot believe how light the rock is. I think my heaviest piece is maybe 15 pounds, and its easily 24". This rock is also super easy to work with. Need a flat base? Sawzall or hacksaw. There isn't any 'best' side and the rocks aquascape incredibly easy. Wish I had used this in the past. I have Tonga branch and shelf in another tank, and aquascaping with that was always a challenge.
Beautiful Large Pieces By Shawn on 2/26/2015
Shawn would recommend this product to a friend
I ordered 120 pounds of the standard size and received 6 pieces that were between 15" and 20" in diameter each. So really nice big pieces even with the standard size. I encourage you to watch the videos the Ryan made regarding aquascaping with this rock. I found it very easy to cut with a hack saw and very easy to chisel holes in.

I had ordered 90 lbs of pukani dry live rock for my new aquarium build. The pieces of rock were huge and easy to manipulate. i couldn't fit t all in my aquarium but that gave me extra for my refugium. The way the rock was shipped was also great as i didn't have a bunch of broken pieces at the bottom of the bag. Once again i am satisfied with my order from BRS.com

awesome rock, best looking rock by far. no problems with phos or nitrates but would defiantly recommend curing rock for a few weeks - acid bath if you're really concerned but defiantly not necessary
Great product By Doug on 1/3/2015

I ordered 50 pounds for my new tank. needed to curing this rock in a separate container for some time and let the cycle complete before using this in my new tank. Pick off the dead sponges that are visible.
This rock that is very porous and makes excellent locations for placing frags
Great Dry Rock By Frank P on 12/30/2014
Frank P would recommend this product to a friend
This stuff is awesome. Exactly as it looked in the videos. Easy to work with and makes for a great base in the tank. Definitely heed the advice on the amount. Much less dense than the live rock you're used to so you won't need as much as you think. We're not a fan of the "giant rock wall" look and found that 1 lb per gallon was more than enough. Even have some left over for the next tank (assuming I get permission of course ;-) ).
Pukani Rock - Looks Great - 35lbs By William on 12/29/2014
William would recommend this product to a friend
Purchased to save money vs. buying live rock at 3X the cost. Takes a little effort to make ready but worth the cost savings. Looks great, pieced together really well, was able to make the aquascape I had envisioned very easily. Would recommend to anyone looking to start a new tank and wants to save a lot of money.

Excellent rock, the problem with the box that I received is it was 80% pieces of 3 1\2" and smaller. Think it will be salvageable with a lot of glue and work.

Received my shipment of Pukani dry rock last week. I was very specific about what I needed, but thought it might be a difficult request. Well BRS sent exactly what I wanted. The rock looks amazing. No broken pieces in shipping. I highlyy recommend the Pukani and BRS.

Las figuras de esta piedra son las mejores es muy porosa y no pesa tanto como la fiji, tiene un olor muy feo pero al curarse queda muy bien, compre 100 libras y me mandaron 130 libras con eso casi lleno un tanque de 180 galones es la cantidad que necesitas para este tanque con 2 overflows en cada orilla.

Looks great and no bad stuff! By DivingTheWorld on 12/19/2014
DivingTheWorld would recommend this product to a friend
The only negative I can say about this rock is that you must "cook" the phosphates out of it before using in your tank. This process took me about 2 months.
That said, once I added the rock to my display, it looks fantastic. My wife and I do a lot of diving in Micronesia and this rock looks just like those areas.
Also it's very light so less weight goes a long ways.

So I ordered 75 pounds of this rock and asked for the biggest pieces they could give me. I figured that I would get 1 or 2 large pieces and many smaller ones, however I was shocked to see nothing smaller than a football and a couple of pieces that were nearly 20" in length!
Not to mention that they sent me an extra 10 pounds worth of rock in the order.
I've already laid it out and it is going to look gorgeous. It's sitting in a 32g trash barrel right now cooking and I can't wait to get it in my tank.
