Pukani rock By jrshew on 9/14/2014
jrshew would recommend this product to a friend
Everything I have purchased from BRS has been top notch. I was a little surprised at the pukani rock I received reading the reviews previously. Although I had one piece that I would consider a showpiece, the remaining 40 pounds was small (~6 inches) and will be difficult to build up to the size that I need. I guess I was expecting larger pieces. Disappointment.

I've started the aquascaping of my new tank build with this rock and it is very easy to work with. It's very easy to blend one piece with another making a fluid design. Make sure and watch the BRS instructional video on aquascaping if it's your first time. It really helps you get a natural looking tank in stead of a "stack of rocks".
Get Reef Saver By Mark on 8/28/2014

I had previously purchased the Reef Saver rock and loved it. Anxious to try out the other rock offering from BRS I ordered some Pukani. The rock came to me very dirty and unattractive. I only got a couple useable pieces. I still love BRS but I'll be sticking with Reef Saver.

This rock looks great in my aquarium. All the holes make great hiding places for my crabs from my Triggerfish. I will continue to buy more and more of this rock!

Just as advertised, this rock is very easy to work with. Without any difficulty, my son chiseled a nice cave through it on his first try. Love that it is so light.

Just like the BRS videos. First order of 50 lbs was awesome with a huge 30 lb piece and several cool looking smaller pieces. Second order of 60 lbs ... the UPS guy dropped the box from waist height onto the sidewalk. I could hear the rocks inside shattering. Great job by BRS, as usual. Maybe get several smaller orders so UPS guy doesn't have to strain and drop your rocks.

SUPER NICE! By Brad on 8/15/2014

I was expecting the picture to be their best sample and the shipped product to be somewhat less attractive. I was wrong! I bought 40 lbs of Pukani and specified the size I wanted. I got a great selection of some really special pieces.
The How To videos on aquascaping and Pukani dry rock are super helpful. I followed instructions and was able to chisel and Dremel several pieces into great caves/shapes.
Very disappointed in this product. By Chris on 8/7/2014

Ordering 57 lbs of pukani dry rock yielded 2 rocks I can use in my aquarium and a lot and I mean a lot of rubble over half a 5 gallon bucket full. The 2 usable rocks are very nice slightly larger than footballs. The rest was of the pukani was no bigger than 3-4 inchs across. I also recieved 1 or 2 that where not pukani rock 4-5 inchs in size with a smooth surface these rocks had no holes or pores and are very dense. It seems like I got the bottom of the bin sweeping in this shipment.
Unhappy with size and quality of the rock. By cwood on 8/7/2014

I just received my 57lbs of pukani rock from BRS. I got 2 rocks that where excellent one football sized and one twice the size of a football. About 20-25 lbs for the two rocks. The rest of my order came the size of a softball or smaller. A few of these smaller rocks are not pukani. They are very dense and smooth no holes. As well as half a five gallon bucket of rubble. In this order I recieved 2 very nice usable rocks and a lot of trash rocks mayb usable for going into the refugium. I don't feel what I recieved was worth the price.
Great Deal By jmar on 8/1/2014

I shopped around. This is the best deal out there. Pukani rock is very porous and make for interesting pieces! I asked for large rocks and ending up ordering too much for my tank since I was going for a more modern aesthetic. I ended up breaking the large rocks into smaller pieces. In my case I should have started with ½ lb per gallon. Great service from BRS!

PUKANI dry rock, ROCKS !! ! I have order both 20" & 20+" & it is the best rock I have every seen. I found it was pretty easy to make a few caves in some of the larger pieces, and make the rock structure very stable by cutting off a portion of the bottom following the BRS video. Some of the larger pieces look to be show quality. I am very impressed with the PUKANI dry rock. Thank you BRS !
cheaper than you think By William of Everett Wa on 7/29/2014

I ordered 15lb for my nano and got 18.7lb which is over $13 worth free. Don't skimp and buy the cheaper rock because BRS will always hook you up and round up when packing your order. After the rock cycled I added a few frags and now have tons of purple and pink goodness all over using Purple Up and NO PEST! I will always check out BRS first for any of my reefer needs. Oh yeah, my RBTA loves this rock.

I ordered both normal and the large Pukani rock for my 90 gallon reef. Knowing that itweighs less than other types of rock equal in size, I ordered 60 lbs. The large Pukani was massive! The piece they sent was like a giant pyramid, and I was able to punch a hole through the center as Jason did in the video. It makes for an amazing center piece in the rock work. There was plenty left over, which I placed in the sump. Worth every penny!

Debated on getting this or the fiji and now I feel silly for even considering the latter. This stuff is beauty in rock form and you dont even need to chisel naked ladies out of it. Ordered far less than I thought I was going to need and was still impressed. I cannot fit all 30lbs I ordered into a 45 gallon cube. I do not think the 1lb per gallon rule applies here. I would go with 1/2 to 3/4 per gallon.

I like Pukani on a whole. I wasn't thrilled with the mix of rocks though. It looks like they do a mixture of good and very mediocre rocks. 10 rocks for an eight pound purchase was also a tad too many.

Outstanding rock. Super easy to aquascape with. Just make sure you let it cure for a good long time to get the phosphate levels down. I used jurassic gel to glue several base pieces together for extra support.

I was shipped two HUGE pieces of pukani. Also they sent me a few more pounds than I paid for! Super easy to make a cave out of these pieces, and I know my fish are going to love it!

I was a little daunted by the higher price of this rock- so went for the bulk 50lb box of Fiji and ordered just a few pieces of Pukani just to check it out. BOY do I wish I had ordered more Pukani. This rock is GORGEOUS. And the thing is- it's super light. Easy to sculpt. I would hazard to say that next time I need some rock I'll use almost if not all Pukani. If you like some drama and dimension to your aquascape- get some of this immediately. MORE than worth the money.
