Stunning Rock By Kevin on 5/11/2015

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!
This rock rocks! By Timothy on 4/18/2015

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!

Received some great pieces for my tank. Was pack well and had very little breakage if any. I was able to aqua-scape for small caves in my rock without any problems. I recommend this to anyone looking to get dry rock.
Great Rock...Poor Packaging By Barry on 4/13/2015

Pros: The rocks I received were awesome!
Cons: The single-walled box they were shipped in barely survived the journey. The UPS guy left a trail of packing peanuts behind him when he brought what was left of the box to my door.

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
epidemiolo would recommend this product to a friend
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.
