This rock does have some dead material on it which adds nutrients but after soaking it for a couple weeks all this came off and it works just like any other rock but looks 20 times as cool. The extra effort is well worth it.

This is the third tank I have used this on. Works great every time and looks incredible. It's what basically everyone in my reef club uses now. I do recommend curing to get the some of the organics off before use.
great rock, bit high in phosphates By Gary on 2/3/2013

Aged it in a separate container, and phosphates spiked, had to treat with lanthanum chloride. Looks great in the tank, but I'd advise against putting directly in an established tank...
A nice surprise By GoodFishie on 2/3/2013

Got this rock for a nano. I asked for and got smaller pieces. There are all sorts of shapes and sizes so I have a lot of options. This is light rock. I ordered 20 pounds at it filled nearly half of a 20 gallon high I'm using to cure it in. It looks like it will be easy to shape the rock if I need to trim a few corners. I'll put what I can't use in a different tank that has Fiji live rock and hope the rock fashion police don't come along and tell me in doing it wrong.
Hair algae magnet By Jack on 1/29/2013

This rock has great shapes and is very lightweight but my experience is that it leaches nutrients like crazy. I have struggled with hair algae for months and am just beginning to win the battle. I would not use it again
Very light, very porous and incredibly easy to shape By Mike on 1/17/2013

I have been keeping reef tanks for over 10 years in that time I've had many tanks and have ordered many types of live rock. This for the money is the best you can get. If you like to create your own caves or customize your rock with a chisel this is a great option. Also being so light you will be getting much more surface area than you would with many other types of lr.
Nice Rock, If you are looking for something specific order large and cut away By Sherri on 1/16/2013

Overall this is nice rock. I haven't put it in the tank yet though since I am making some adjustments to it. I ordered a piece that was 16-18 inches and got one that was 13 inches tall. I called in to talk to someone about weight prior to ordering and added on extra weight to make sure that I got one that was tall enough. I requested the order to be held until they had a piece of that size and any weight left over send me in rubble. What I got was a size smaller than requested and about 3 pounds of rubble. I would have rather waited until they had what I requested. It is a huge inconvenience to send back so I'll make due, but make sure if you are doing a project order way larger and cut down.
