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

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

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

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.
Pukani rock By Vetteguy on 4/28/2015

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
Alex would recommend this product to a friend
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.

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
Chief would recommend this product to a friend
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
