Phosphates and more Phosphates By Kai on 7/27/2015
Kai wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I bought this rock about two years ago I loved it at the time lots of hiding and caves and cool holes and pieces but after the first year my phosphates started climbing and climbing and I could not find the culprit, so one of my friends told me the dead organism decay well after curing the rock. So the next month o bought 120 LB of reef saver rock and switched it out after the first week my phosphates started diminishing and within 6 month I had absolutely no phosphates. so please avoid this rock!

I am using a mix of rock for my new tank, but if I did it over I would have gone all PUKANI. Very light. Tons of surface area, nooks and crannies.
Interesting shapes, lightweight, easy to work with By Evan on 7/18/2015

Over the course of several orders, I've gotten a wide variety of different and interesting shapes. If that's not enough, I've also found it incredibly easy to modify this rock to my liking. Hammer and chisel works well, as does as drill -- BRS has a good video on that.
And for those extra big pieces, if I'm completely lost, I've had some good luck dropping this rock off my porch onto concrete. ;-)

The Punjabi rock from BRS is very impressive , I order 30 lbs and it is a lot of rock due to its light weight compared to other rock the nooks,holes , and radon shapes of the pukani is unlike any dry live or wet live to I I have ever seen ..I love it .

This rock is very porous and come in some very interesting shapes. It was fairly easy to put together a number of aquascape options that looked great. Provided a drawing and list of sizes desired and got what was specified.

Received several large pieces. Arrived in great shape with very little breakage. Rock is very low density. One pound per gallon will stuff your aquarium.

Great rock can't go wrong! By Kyle on 6/7/2015

I order 65 pounds of this rock and was very please with the product that showed up. They shipped it in 2 boxes instead of one to make it easier to manage. Also the free shipping was a added plus. The one downside to pukani is you need to cure this rock probably especially if adding the rock to an already established tank. Due to the porous structure of the rock many critters and organics are still left behind from the drying process and need to be properly remove or you will leach nutrients into your tank. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase from BRS.

I am never disappointed in the rock I am sent from BRS. I asked for large rock for my 310. I got four pieces the size of a large cantaloupe, and one the size of a basketball.
Best bang for your $ By Biocube8 on 6/4/2015

Less weight, more surface area, and tons of openings and caves within the rocks make for easy aqua scapping.
Outstanding Rock By Jgann on 5/27/2015
Jgann would recommend this product to a friend
Setting up a 60g Cube and it was time to decide on rock, everyone I talked to pointed me the same direction: BRS Pukani rock. I wasn't sure I wanted to wait the amount of time it would take to "cure" it but I finally decided that I was willing to wait a while longer for a better looking end result. When the rock came in I knew that I had made the right choice, it's amazing and beautiful. Last week I spent several hours deciding how I wanted to aquascape the tank and then did some cutting and chiseling to get it just right. It was super easy to cut (personally I would recommend a power reciprocating saw instead of a hacksaw - but that's just me) and I was able to notch multiple passages / holes where I wanted them. Super excited I went with this rock.

Best rock I've ever used By Andrew on 5/18/2015
Andrew would recommend this product to a friend
This was out of stock when I was ready to place an order, but I am VERY glad that I decided to wait rather than just order a different kind of rock. The pukani is every bit as good as the other reviews say. Lightweight, fascinating shapes, very porous. This is the best rock I've ever used and the ONLY rock I will ever use again. BRS sent me an awesome rock that looks like a Star Destroyer, which appeals to the nerd in me. Nice.
I literally have a boulder, that I can pick up, sitting in my garage right now! By Jeff on 5/16/2015

I'm hoping to take it a few steps beyond "dumped wheelbarrow pile of rocks" and come up with some really neat aquascaping for my new FOWLR tank I'm setting up.
I figure I need about 50# and since I heard the pukani runs really light I ordered 75# to have a few choices among the smaller rocks I thought I'd receive.
It just came in today and it came in one piece!

Looking forward to cleaning up my work bench so that I can break this bad boy up and channel my inner sculptor. Thanks BRS! (I'll bet a LOT of ups guys hate you...;-)
Stunning Rock By Kevin on 5/11/2015
Kevin would recommend this product to a friend
BRS is incredible. I'm setting up my first tank, a 24" cube seahorse tank, and chatted several times with customer service via the Live Chat button (they were offline, but I left a message and rec'd an email the next morning, and then prompt replies to my questions). I ended up ordering 35 lbs at the recommendation of BRS, and I put a detailed note in with the order letting them know I was looking for one very large centerpiece rock for a minimalist scape that would look great and also create a bit of a flow blocker for the horses.
They called me about a half hour later asking for clarification - they wanted to make sure I wasn't looking for a piece of Pukani 24x24x24 (which they said they could find if I needed it!!). They helped me clarify exactly what I was looking for and promised they could find something really cool - I told them to send smaller rocks for the corners with any leftover weight.
The package arrived today, padded with an insane amount of peanuts. Inside were 3 pristine pieces with less than a palmful of rubble. The smallest piece is about 8" wide, the middle piece is about 12", and the largest piece is a stunning 18" wide, 12" tall, and 8" deep.
The big piece alone is so striking and aesthetic that I'm using it completely by itself in the tank - I wish I could post a picture because it is the most perfect fit I could have asked for - someone definitely hand picked this for me.
Can't thank you guys enough, and absolutely recommend this rock (along with a detailed description of what you're looking for). BRS rocks! (lol)
I've probably got about 15lbs left over - the main rock is probably 25, and the package was 40 (5 extra lbs!).

I just received my order today in the mail of 50lbs of pukani. I was a little disappointed with the selection I got. Some nice size ones, but some of the medium size ones looked like they were broken off from another larger piece and put in the box. Not what I thought or seen from videos or pics.

Best thing I can say is " I should have ordered MORE and just rinse off in water and place in tank. Lots of nice holes for frag plugs !!
Don't buy anything else! By Alex on 4/22/2015

I have bought other types of rock, even from BRS, and every time I kick myself for not waiting for the Pukani to come back in stock. This time I didn't make that mistake... I ordered 75 lbs and recieved some huge, gorgeous rocks. I had some friends who aren't even reefers see them and say "wow, those rocks are beautiful". On top of that they are so light and porous.
I soak them in lanthanum chloride a couple times to make sure there are no phosphates that will leech out and that makes them perfect for my reef!
The best part is how big and beautiful the rocks are. My 75lbs came in 7-8 rocks... 5 were massive, basketball to beachball size, the others football size.
Don't hesitate to buy these, you will thank yourself (and BRS) for years to come!

I ordered 10lbs. and it came as one large piece. So light and porous you get a much larger portion by weight than you would think. After watching the how to video I had no problem chiseling an intricate cave network into the piece I ordered to give it a custom look. I'll definitely be ordering more!
