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

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.

Great Rock - Beware! By Paul on 12/8/2014
Paul would recommend this product to a friend
Ordered this rock as part of Black Friday deal, and it came quick. Lots of rock for my 120 (75lbs).
Rock definitely needs to soak for a while. After 2 days the stench...dear god. Smell is gone, but phosphates in 1 tub are well over 1.00 ppm at the moment. Patience is a virtue, and with this rock it'll pay off.
Love it By Paul on 12/4/2014

I ordered 120 pounds for my new tank. I started curing my rock in a large trash can and let the cycle complete before I moved this into my tank. You will really want to pick off the dead sponges because there are a few. This is great rock that is very porous and makes excellent hiding spots for my green clown goby and resting spots for placing corals. Looks great in my tank.

This is my favorite dry rock. The porous structure, great for the critters. You really get your moneys worth with this rock.

I ordered 40 pounds of this rock and for the most part, received on 40 pound rock. This would not be so bad except that I was expecting more of what I saw in the video which, I guess, I will now have to attempt to create with a hammer and chisel. I was expecting to do some of this to customize the look but, not to have to create 5-7 pieces from one big piece.
Bubbles bubbles bubbles By Cole on 12/1/2014
Cole would recommend this product to a friend
When I first got this stuff holly cow there was way more then what I thought I was getting. When I was soaking it before putting it in my tank it bubbled for ever. So many small holes and place for water to get into. For me it has actually turned into a copepod heavan for breeding. Even my mandarin gobie can't seem to eat it all. Totally love this rock and well worth every penny!
Best rock there is By Robert on 11/20/2014

This is my second time ordering this. I ordered a smaller quantity this time of only 30 pounds, so I wasn't sure what I would get. They sent me about 4 huge pieces and a small one (by small I mean volley ball sized). Very pleased, the rock is very light so you get a lot more for your money. If you wanted smaller pieces and you were sent a few large ones, this stuff isn't too hard to break and manipulate how you want. You can even easily drill holes to insert pvc or acrylic rods to support your structure. BRS recently did a porosity test to compare different rocks structure and its possible filtration ability. The only thing that came close to pukani was a product that was specifically engineered for that purpose, and cost quite a bit more.

Reviewed previously under Hasty nickname. Nothing to add except you should be aware that, at least with my rock, that it will be loaded with dead material. It took me about 3 days of soaking in salt water to get rid of this material. My water looked like pea soup. I soaked them in a 20 gal tank and added sand and crushed coral to mix after water cleared and frequent water changes. Tank cycling for 2 weeks now. I eventually will take the rock out of this tank and put in my 40 gal reef tank, transferring the damsels in the reef tank to my 20 gal. Rock is looking pretty good as it cures.
Best you can get By Jason on 11/18/2014

I bought 150 lbs of this and 50 lbs of the reef saver and this is worth the price, unlimited possibilities of what you can do with these. Watch the video and enjoy. With it being dry you can really spend the time to create an amazing aquarium habitat. Reef or fish only, this rock is the best you can get. Call BRS and let them know what you are doing and what sizes you are looking for.
When I think dry rock from the ocean, I think BRS. By FirstContact on 11/10/2014
FirstContact would recommend this product to a friend
Really like the pukani, Fiji, and Tonga rock that BRS sells. Honestly, not even sure where I would purchase these rocks dry if not at BRS. I feel these are great products to use to make my tank, well, look like a reef. Nothing compares to what nature produces. The man made alternatives are just not the same. I use diamond coated drill bits from Hong Kong to create rock structures with fiberglass rodding as connectors and supports. Water means weight and weight costs money, and so does overnight shipping. I'd rather my rock become live in my aquarium seeded from another tank by a few small pieces and a cup of sand, and use the savings towards other purchases.

I ordered 15lbs and asked for larger pieces if possible and I was pleasantly surprised on opening the carton which was well packed and arrived in excellent shape. I got 2 large pieces and 4 medium pieces and no rubble. All looked great. I wished that I had originally ordered from BRS instead of buying from my LFS when I first started my 40gal reef tank 3 months ago. I am new to this so I did not know what to buy from LFS and got what amounted to rock. I have already chucked some of the rock out and probably will get rid of the rest. Am really pleased with my shipment and BRS service.

Quality low weight rock By jeremy on 11/1/2014

Please do not let the higher phosphate reviews scare you from purchasing this rock. They were just uneducated reefers that thought they could stick the rock in their tank as so as they got it or rinsed it off. Treat this rock as though it actual live rock. It needs to be cured. Soak rock in container with a pump for water movement. Check nitrates and phosphates weekly. And change the water weekly as well. When you read zero or close enough for your liking then it's ready to be cut, chiseled or molded into you aquascape masterpiece and placed into your aquarium.

This rock is awesome! Ordered 39lbs, BRS gave me one rock perfect for the pillar like shown in their DIY video and one large 23 pound monster of a rock I was able to break and chisel into some great pieces! I'm so proud of my aquascape, thanks to BRS!

Just a warning that you will receive in weight exactly what you order. If that means they have to fill the bag with tiny useless pieces of Rock, they do. While I could never get my order to match the 50lbs I ordered, it was just shy I am happy with the rock I received. Here is what you get when you order 50lbs FYI:

This is the first time I've ordered rock online, so I was a bit skeptical. BUT, the rock arrived in good condition, the pieces are decently sized (they look smaller in the picture, but they are pretty big pieces). Overall happy with the product.

This rock arrived in good shape with little/no damage during shipping. BRS staff was very helpful in providing larger sized chunks since they were out of the 20"+ pieces. The texture of the rock is very interesting. There was some phosphate leaching that was easily controlled during the cooking process.
