Unlike the previous time, This time I asked for what I wanted and they did give me (100 lbs of 20+).
omg one rock was 27" high single piece standing like a natural piece of mountain cut from the ocean. awesome rock.
I will not buy from anywhere but from BRS.

I wanted a rock easy to work work and easy to aquascape and this is it. Comes with its own rubble from within when cleaning and with a hacksaw, chisel, and a considerable amount of patience you can get this rock to sculpt and lock into itself well enough. I used not a single drop of reef adhesive and sits flat against the bottom no shifting or worry that the flow or earthquake will topple the rock formation. I couldn't be more pleased if your starting the hobby take your time and buy BRS they save you and inform you.... cheers BRS Crew........ Thanks for everything
One was awesome and the other was just ok By TRUEOPINION on 5/23/2014

I Ordered 100 lbs of 20". I received 103 Lbs(not as lucky as others). I asked for two large ones with crevices and that are less dense, but what I got was a (medium to large) dense one and a small one with crevices and that is less dense. one rock weighed 80 lbs and the other weighed 23 lbs. Love love the small one (not because of the size but because it is less dense). I specifically asked for two rocks, so I think they added that (medium to large) dense one to add weight. well, I will keep it. So be careful what you ask for. lol. If you ask only two rocks for 100 lbs then they will give you the dense one. lol.
So guess what? just ordered another hundred lbs today asking for the ones with crevices and that are less dense. we will see. Hope they don't disappoint me this time.

This rock is really nice as a free standing pieces. I ordered 25 pounds for my 38 NUVO mini and I had plenty left over. The only thing is that the pukani rock greatly differs from piece to piece so when trying to stack the rocks or build one large piece u can tell the pieces are different. Overall great rock.

I am in the process of curing my pukani rock now and I am very impressed. The rock is so porous and light compared to other types of rock and it is super easy to shape into your own liking. I suggest watching the videos BRS has on this product, they really helped me in aquascaping my rock and creating some nice caverns in the rock. It is really easy to make caves by using just a chisel and a rubber mallet. I think the phosphate issues that some people talk about are easily avoidable if you take the time to cure this rock properly.

I bought 50 lbs of Pukani dry live rock from BRS. They arrived today for my SR-80 80g tank.
These rocks are fantastic! Every piece are very well selected by BRS, mixed from huge size to small size blocks. Some are very light and some are very dense.
These rocks are very nice looking. I am speechless.

Morse would recommend this product to a friend
The rock came in 2 big pieces then two medium pieces. There actually was a real nice red/orange coral on one piece? Probably dead but looks great and will watch the thing. The two medium piece's might have been one that broke but still large enough for my 180 reef. 20lbs plus shipping was just short of 100.00. It was well worth it to me. The original rock I have that is 15+ years old is super heavy and would not want to add that much weight when those are a lot smaller than the two big pieces shipped.
May place another order soon...A+++ Deal

We ordered this rock for my new 45 gal reef tank. It is really what i need for pods to grow in for the gobys that i want to get. The rock is an awesome size and already has a little cave going through it. I cant wait to get it cured and in the tank. Thanks guys :)

Mine arrived in a couple days. I'm so pleased with this rock. The size was perfect and the shape looks great, easy to stack. I'm starting a new tank but think I will soak it for a couple weeks any way. If I would have been chosing the rock myself I probably would came away with the same pieces BRS did a wonderful job! Thanks guys

More than you would expect By Paul on 4/23/2014
Paul would recommend this product to a friend
I purchased 3lbs of this rock for my 6gal Nano at the office. I was going to mix it in with some Tonga shelf rock I purchased earlier. When it came in, I was surprised at how much rock I got. All 3lbs would probably fill the tank by itself. It kind of defeats the rule of 1-2lbs per gallon. Even though the price per pound looks to be a bit higher than other dry rock, in terms of size, you would get more rock for less money with this rock than other dry rocks. Cant wait to finish remodeling my house and put in a large tank there, I plan to get more of this Pukani for that one.

I ordered forty pounds of rock and am very happy with the rock received. End up 9 pieces of rock ranging from 6 to 10 inches in diameter roughly. The pukani I rock has nice structure and is much more interesting to look at than some other rocks. I would definitely buy more for future builds.

Great By Jason on 3/27/2014
Jason would recommend this product to a friend
I received a 50 LB order and I couldn't be happier. I got one stand alone piece that after cutting the bottom flat sits at ~17' inches tall / 8-12' around and weighs in at only 25 lbs dry. At first I was a bit disappointed with it but after a one day vinegar bath and a few days of freshwater curing some dried organics started sloughing off and it is a lot more open now. the remainder of the order went to building two additional large structures and I only have a gallon bag of rubble remaining.
Everything went together well and the organics are coming off quickly by blasting through the rock with the hose off of my 900 GPH return pump. It would take a long time for everything to dissolve with just regular powerhead circulation.

I have been in the hobby for over 7 years and I have build three tanks. I can honestly say that buying this rock it has been the best decision I haver ever made while building my aquascaping. Is light (so you get more for your money) very easy to work with, and fit together like legos... Just perfect!!!

Super light and porous which means more product for your money AND an all around better product. My pseudochromis has made one large piece of pukani into his home, weaving in and out of the gaps. This stuff goes from base rock to live in no time, also making way for some quick coralline.

I wish I knew about these rocks before. They are excellent rocks in terms of look, with many gaps and crevices and porosity. This was the easiest rock to cut. I cut couple of rocks to make them stand on their base with a power saw, it cuts so easily. The rocks came in great condition with hardly any dirt or dead material. Some rocks looked just as shown in pictures. I wish my whole tank was full of these rocks. I would buy these if I were to start a new tank.

As I stated in an earlier review I just ordered 100lbs of this rock, and it arrived on time and undamaged! This is my second time ordering the pukani and I am not the least bit disappointed. Nice varying sizes and shapes from small to large, which i had requested, and these boxes most definitely weighed over 100lbs! I knew I wouldn't be disappointed the guys at BRS really came through again.

I bought a big 30lb pukani rock a year ago and hollowed out the center to make a cave! This rock is really unique, I just ordered 100 more pounds of it for a new build I am starting. Don't be fooled, a little goes a long way with this stuff, it's not as dense as some of the other rock you can buy.

I ordered 15 lbs of pukani rock and one large beautiful piece that weighed 16 lbs came and it is an awesome piece. Looks just like the photo and has lot of crevices and Looks so natural and beautiful. I also bought Tonga complex Multibranch from BRS and they sent me terrible single cylinder ones. AIso I bought 20 lbs 20" tonga and they sent me 4 cylinder pieces. Really? I really would like to return them but the disadvantage of buying online is that it may be difficult to return. I'm not putting that tonga in my tank for sure. So don't buy tonga or any other rock since it may be a hit or miss, but buy pukani

This rock is so light and porous! I wish I had bought it when I first started reefkeeping. The pieces were very well packed, I didnt have but a couple of small fragments that broke off of corners during transit. I was happy to find several of the pieces to be quite large, and it looks great in my display. I will probably order more soon!
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.

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.

Bluethunder would recommend this product to a friend
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!!!

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.

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!!!
