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!
They ship EXACTLY what you order By Vince on 10/22/2014

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.

Love my Pukani! Light, porous and great for adding shelfs to 3-D background walls.

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.

The pukani rock is great you get more for the pound than I have ever seen. The greatest aspect of it is how porous it is. It is also the only draw back of it also. I would recommend this rock to anyone just handle it a bit easier than you normally would. Being so porous also makes it more breakable. That being said it is still the greatest rock Ive gotten to work with.

Very porous and light. Tons of little holes and caves for small fish to hide. Looks great.
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
Mark wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
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.

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
Chris wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
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.

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 !

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.
