Excellent rock By Mark on 2/13/13

I have just finished two days of playing with the Pukani base rock that I ordered recently, and it is fantastic. The pictures shown are absolutely not "cherry pick" pieces of rock, as virtually all of my pieces are of very similar look and texture. It stacks very well and very sturdily, and has far more interesting shapes than the more common live rock found in my local fish stores.
The rock was packed very well, in two separate bags with liberal packing peanuts in a sturdy box. The rock is a bit rough, and tore through the bags in a few places as I was pulling it out, but no real issue there. I will say that there is a larger amount of dead biomass on the rock than I expected, and would not recommend this rock to be put directly into an established aquarium. I plan to cure the rock myself in unlit tubs for as long as necessary for this stuff to decompose and break down, and would highly recommend that anyone using it research the process of "cooking" rock and implement it with this Pukani rock.

Don’t have the tank established fully yet, currently cycling, so will take a year for my full opinion. Pleased with the size to weigh volume. I asked for some larger pieces and I got them, NICE. The rock does have a lot of old organics to marinate off. As I am starting new I wanted some to help cycle, cured for two weeks and blasted with city water pressure in the middle after one week. Seemed to give a good balance and remove the big chunks. If I need more rock this is what I will get. Rock arrived very well packaged with little to no breakage. They were pretty accurate on the weight got about 1 lb more than ordered.

If your looking for a nice porous rock for your system you can go wrong here. These days you have to be careful with live rock, so many of them carry so many hitchhikers that are not great for your tank.

Too many organics By Cody on 2/13/13
Cody wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
If you are trying to establish a tank this rock would be perfect. However, my tank has been up and running for a year and a half so I cant add any rock that has brown organics all over it into my tank. I understand you can cure it but personally I don't have the resources or the time for that. I'll plop in some reefsaver any day!
great rock for the price By mrbigshot on 2/13/13
mrbigshot would recommend this product to a friend
not nearly as porous as the pictured rock, i defiantly prefer this over the eco rock. the eco-rock felt solid as was impossible to break with a hammer, it was like iron. this rock was true old calcium carbonate rock and will break easy.i would suggest 100% of this vs the eco rock. great price and the second best rock iv'e ever gotten (marko Australasian spaghetti is my #1)
I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could! By Stephen on 2/13/13
Stephen would recommend this product to a friend
I searched and searched forums and suppliers for a dry rock source before deciding on BRS. Pukani was my choice because of what I read, the rock's porosity, and its looks. The description says its lighter than other rock so instead of ordering 1.5 # per gallon, I ordered 1#, which came to 30 pounds. True to what I've heard about BRS, I found 35# of PRIMO Pukani chunks in the box when I opened it. Nice shapes and there is even some dried corraline algae on it. Only thing is, I could only fit about 20# in my 29 gallon nano!. I can't recommend this rock enough for its looks and value.
Lots of rock for the $, easy to aquascape By holder45 on 2/13/13
holder45 would recommend this product to a friend
I ordered 50 lbs. to finish aquascaping my 120 G system. First off, it looks great. BRS was very kind to include the size pieces I requested. Next, this stuff is super porous and lightweight, which means you get a lot more rock than you would expect from the weight. Since it is so porous, it's also very easy to shape and scape not to mention there's so much more area for beneficial bacteria growth. I'll never setup another system without it!

Rock is exactly as advertised - very porous and lightweight. The pieces range from large to huge (I asked for some show pieces). Interlocks very well, allowing me to make some very interesting rockscapes.

I really recommend this rock above other dry rock. Here's why, the rock has tremendous surface area! There are TONS of nooks and crannies throughout this rock. Its is so porous. Also this rock is very light. It is priced a bit higher than the Fiji rock but you get almost 3 times the same weight Fiji rock because of its weight. I bought 25# of LR from my lfs and then picked this up during a group buy with my forum and litterially I got almost 3X the amount of rock with this buy. I really recommend this to everyone.

This is absolutely the best rock I've seen, live or dry. Huge pieces and lightweight. Asked for some larger pieces and the guys accommodated my request. I can't say enough about the excellent service and packaging was great too. minimal to no breakage. I definitely recommend BRS.

I orderd 35lbs and asked for large and x-large display pieces. I got 2 HUGE BEAUTIFUL pieces. this rock is absolutly georgous!!! for the money what you get is totally fantastic!! there is some dried up dead matter on the rock but since i'm starting a new tank it's a non issue for me. with all the nooks and crannies there is all most no end to the places that livestock can inhabit. the pictures of this rock are absolutly NOT cherrie picked pieces!!!!! what you see is the real deal. personally I think the pieces they sent look even better than the ones in the pictures. if you are still up in the air on which rock to buy look no further. I absolutly will be buying more!!!

I just recieved my 50 lbs of Pukani Rock. It is amazing. I wasn't expecting this much either. It had 6 beautiful pieces and they are HUGE! The largest was 17" accross, 14" tall and 13" wide. Two others were almost as big. I requested large pieces, and they delivered! Don't hesitate, this stuff is fantastic! Thanks BRS.

I have used several different types of rocks from several other highly recommended vendors and this stuff is the bomb. Much better in my opinion than reef cleaner rock. Very light and porous. 2 thumbs up also to Bulk Reef Supply and their shipping. Much more responsive than any other online vendor in getting products packaged nicely and shipped quickly.

Wow, this is amazing rock. I ordered 50 lbs for a 65 gallon RSM 250, and that was certainly plenty for the tank. I also requested some unique "show pieces," and it appears they selected a couple of pieces with that in mind. It was shipped and packaged well, with hardly any rubble.
Happy so far By Aaron on 2/13/13
Aaron would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this rock for a biocube 29. First of all, since it is dry and pukani is very sparse, don't follow the traditional 1 lb per gallon rule. I would recommend 0.25 lb per gallon.
I found the instructional video on aquascaping very helpful. I applied all of the techniques demonstrated and ended up converting some already interesting rocks to pieces of art.
I haven't put it in the tank yet, but am looking forward to it.

I'm new to the saltwater scene and after all my research I discovered that this rock was among the best to get if you want to use Dry Rock for your setup. I was really confused at first with all the different ways a person can go to setup their tank, but the videos BRS supplies with BRSTV really cleared things up for me. I decided on a mix of this rock and the "Reef Saver" rock. Just a side note, I've heard from any different sources that it's good to cook the rock before you use it. (Cooking means to keep it in a closed container with a heater and a pump for roughly a month).

I have a 150g tank and 45 pounds of the Pukani was all I needed! It's amazing rock! I've never even seen live rock at any LFS that looks half this nice. And they charge $8-$12/pound! It's so light, porous, and looks so awesome! If you're debating this or ANY other rock, choose this, I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!

This rock is amazing. Extremely porous and the pieces I received looked great. There were many different sizes ranging from small to large. The large pieces were perfect for shaping into exactly what I wanted using a hack saw and mason drill bit. I believe the total weight was just over 50lbs.
Why go anywhere else to purchase dry rock? This stuff rox!!!

The aesthetics of this rock are excellent. I wish I had known about it when setting up my first tank.
One word of caution since it is dry, it will take 4-8 weeks to fullly cure. Be sure that you have a test kit.

This rock was great. However, better than the rock, was the instructional video on how to aquascape with this rock. After creating to many piles in my tank to count that weren’t quite right, I watched the videos on shaping this rock, which was surprisingly easy and voila. I was able to create exactly the look I was imagining. Don’t be scared, just hack into it and you will be surprised how you can transform each piece.
