Nice shapes, large pieces but takes some work By cee on 1/29/2014

The rock is fairly clean but expect some dead matter. It does leach phosphate so it needs some preparation before adding it to a tank. I acid washed and then used lanthanum chloride to precipitate out the phosphate but it does take a few weeks. It is large for its weight and comes in nice "inverted pyramid" shapes.
Very light By garrett on 1/23/2014

The rock was a lot bigger than I imagined, it came in two large chunks and a few smaller pieces. The rock was pretty clean for the most part, overall I'm very happy with the rock, I wish I would have bought this rock from the beginning I would have saved a ton!

Great rock for the price. Light, porous. It was a lot larger rock than I expected. I asked for certain sizes and brs delivered. This rock has allowed for my pods to flourish because of its porousness and hard to get to places. Easy to manipulate and create custom aquascapes.
Pukani By Bluethunder on 1/14/2014

Just received my rocks, ordered 50lbs for a 45 gallon tank. My guess 10-15 lbs too much, but nice to have extra rock for the future. I highly recommend. If you buy this rock watch BRS video on aquascaping with Pukani, I did and was real pleased with the outcome and how the tank looks (not a pile of rock, if you know what I mean..). Also plenty of interesting and strategic surface area to add coral.
Product was very well packaged, considering how fragile the rock appears very surprised all pieces arrived intact.
Great stuff guys and thank you for your support and knowledge base!!!
Dissatisfied selection By Rob on 1/13/2014

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.

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.

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!

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.

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...

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

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.

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.
