I ordered 40lbs of Pukani and 20lbs of tonga complex multi branch. To start with this was my Customer Note"I will be combining these two rock in attempt to make a bonsai style feature. This is going into a 300g tank so it is just the beginning of rock. Please do your best to make the Pukani larger pieces. I am sure you guys can pick it better than I can. Cant wait to see your choices, Thanks!
The Pukani came is with with ten pieces 4"-6" and five pieces 7"-10". Not what I was expecting. But the rock is very lite.
The 20lbs of Tonga is one piece. Extremely dense.
The packing and shipping time is second to none, as always. Very little breakage with the Pukani, and zero breakage with the Tonga.

Great shape and huge... bought 20 lbs received 22 lbs. Little rubble that broke in shipping. This rock did have some dried sponges and a few dried stars. Curing now.

I have been reefing for a very.... long time and the quality of this dry rock is well...... Impressive! Very light and porus and also pretty light weight given its size. You defifnily get alot of bang for your buck with the Pukani Rock.
Very Clean and Porous Live Rock By Roman on 1/3/2014
Roman would recommend this product to a friend
Received live rock with almost no rubble, a little bigger pieces than I expected. Also lighter than I anticipated, so I ended up used only half of live rock that I ordered.
The rock was extremely clean and had very little detritus, after rinsing it for couple minutes I put it in the tank with a few pieces of real live rock from LFS to seed. To my surprise I didn't observe any ammonia/nitrite spikes and was able to add livestock to my tank just after one week of adding the rock.

I was very curious about this rock when I first heard about it. So after a few months of doing whatever the woman that sleeps next to me at night "wife" i finally talked her into letting me get 15 more pounds of rock. She doesn't understand "rock". So then I received the few pieces that actually weighed a little more than 15 pounds after I cleaned roughly 3-4 of decaying material I was impressed. So I've got to figure out how to buy abojt 30 more pounds. At least. Haha. Wonderful buy. Again

I received my rock about a week ago. It's now soaking in salt water to removeany debri that may have come along with the rock. I ordered 65lbs and it filled a 40 gallon tank. To fill a40 gallon tank with locally purchased rock.Would have likely cost me apx 5 times as much. So far I'm very happy with the selection they sent me. I may fallow up after putting it in my display if I find it necessary.

I recently purchased 59 lbs of rock from you guys. After the U.P.S guy struggled with the box up my stairs! I weighed the box and had just under 67 lbs. Three big pieces and the rest were nice mini basketball sized pieces. No rubble, found it a breeze to work with. I was able to cut it, aquascape just how I wanted it! I was even able to carve a piece into an Easter island head!! You truly knocked it out of the park BRS!!!

Bought this for a 50g cube & the pieces that BRS were perfect!!! My diamond goby & golden head goby enjoy hiding in the many hiding places. Coral is easy to place without the use of coral glue, in most instances.
Great looking solo pieces By Sabina on 11/21/2013
Sabina wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
The individual pieces look great but it's hard to make them flow together. I tried chiseling and sculpting but it's WAY harder than I though. It is very large for its weight. Next time I will use reefsaver. So not perfect but it's ok.
Pukani Dry Rock Rocks By Laz on 11/19/2013

Very satisfied with the purchase of Pukani rock. It is very porous and light for its size. There are lots of nooks and crannies for fish to hide and place coral. Great looking as well. Now onto the curing process!
20"+ Rock By Jason on 11/16/2013

As part of a aquarium redesign, I ordered 3 20"+ of this select rock. The pieces I received were great looking. They were well packed and had very little break off pieces. The fish also have tons of hiding spaces in these rocks.

Richard would recommend this product to a friend
I ordered 140lb of PUKANI... It arrived in 3 large boxes, well packed with little breakage... Some of the largest hunks of rock I have ever seen - they are HUGE, and I didn't really make any special requests. - Phosphate levels are high, but acceptable... Don't forget to cure the rock...
Nice rock By Bill on 11/2/2013

I went with reef saver for my larger display tank. Wanted to try something different for a cube I'm building so I went with the pukani. I think it has a more natural look than reef saver, but I still prefer reef saver in larger applications because it so easy to aquascape with.

Great rock. Very porous By Philip on 10/17/2013
Philip would recommend this product to a friend
Very porous, light, and full of crevices and openings for good bacteria to culture. Only downside I had was that it started to leach phosphates. Not bad though and I got it under control very easily.
Amazing Assortment of Rock! By Scott on 10/15/2013

I just got my order in of this rock yesterday and I will say that I am very happy with my purchase! This rock is very porous and has tons of spots for small inverts and pods to hide in. I got lots of very nice pieces of all shapes and sizes and I can not wait to break out the dremel and see what I can do with it. The best part is that I ordered 90 lbs and received about 106 lbs.

I ordered 35lbs and boy did I get my money's worth. The rock looks great and came in big pieces to give you the opportunity to shape them how you like. Very little rubble. Maybe a half a cup.
Great Rock By Blindrage on 10/3/2013
Blindrage would recommend this product to a friend
It is amazing how light and porous this rock is. I ordered 25 lbs, and it came as three very large chunks with some smaller pieces to make up the weight.
I was able to use one of the pieces directly, but I had to break up the bigger pieces to get everything into my tank.
I would highly recommend this rock to anyone for unique aquascaping and the ability to chisel the rock into the shapes you want in the tank.
This is the way to go By Cameron on 9/29/2013
Cameron would recommend this product to a friend
Dry rock is definitely the way to go. I have not bought any of the other types offered here just the Pukani so cannot compare but I definitely like the Pukani. As mentioned by BRS it is cheap, easy to aquascape, and very porous. This rock is so much more porous than any of the live rock I have seen in any stores. It is great I have two peppermint shrimp and most of the time cannot find them because they are inside the rocks and my rocks and tank are not that big. There is definitely an initial nutrient leaching but you can cycle the rock or just make sure you have a good clean up crew (sea hares are probably the best at that). My rock is already covered in coralline algae and I have only had it for a few months. I used a small piece of live rock from the fish store to seed my tank, as well as whatever came in with the coral frags I have added (which i think added more than the live rock piece really). No complaints at all; I bought 20 more lbs. for when I upgrade to a 40 gallon.

I purchased 30lb of Pukani Rock and was 100% satisfied when I opened the box. I have always purchased LR from my local fish store and this was my first experience trying this. I'm starting a new 90 gallon build and this was a much more cost efficient way to go about it. Wish I would have bought more. Very happy I found BRS online and couldn't be happier with the quikness of the shipment and service. Thank you.
mega Phosphates By Join the Revolution on 9/2/2013
Join the Revolution would recommend this product to a friend
Love the rock, hate the untold P04 it leaches. I set up an existing 25 gallon cube with BRS dry rock, and after a few weeks hair algae started to sprout up everywhere. I tested a control sample and found that the dry rock was leaching P04. According to other online forums, this is a well documented cons in using this rock. So if you use it, prepare for an algae bloom. Run Phosban or other P04 reduction methods.
I would still recommend the headache of this product, in the end Im being hopeful its just temporary. I will report back in 6 months.
