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.

Got 55 lbs for my 60gal cube and it was more than enough. This rock is so light that you really get more for your money. They delivered when it came to giving me the pieces I asked for and I was able to sculpt the rock following their video on Youtube. Very satisfied and will be shopping here more in the future.

It is amazing how light weight this stuff is!! When you are paying by weight this stuff can't be beat. There may be rock with a lower per pound price, but with this stuff the weight is spread over more pieces.

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.

The rock was huge compared to the sizes I could find locally. The color and shapes with the amount of open space in this is like a fun maze. Will be ordering more for sure.

Great looking rock, very light, not to difficult to Aquascape with, when the box came in I was surprised at how much rock I got for 12 pounds, but it is the most expensive dry rock available, In my opinion it's well worth it. Great stuff, Don't hesitate to get it!

i used the BRS video and sculpted my rock. my order came with a variation of piece sizes. i found a piece that was perfect to make a really big cave in and my fish love it. i made tunnels with the other pieces. the pieces sit together really well and are really light. my fish find all kinds of places to zip in and out. best rock purchase i ever made!

This was used to setup my first SW tank after having FW for many years. I looked everywhere for rock and debated on what to get and who to order from, look at the other reviews for this rock you will NOT be disappointed! I ordered 40lbs for my 46gallon bowfront and had some very specific instructions as for what I was looking for. I did not exactly get the pieces I asked for but I think I may have been to specific with my request. Even so, after watching the aquascaping video I used my hacksaw and chisel and made an amazing aquascape with a little effort and some epoxy that looks better then most pictures you will find. This rock is far superior than any liverock you will find in a lfs for way less do not hesitate you will not regret using this rock!

I echo the reviews of everyone else on this rock. It is so much lighter than I expected. I aske for a few specific sizes and they matched them perfectly. It was extremely easy to handle and shape with a chisel. I would recommend this rock absolutely!

What wowed me about the order of pukani I placed was how it was delivered. HUGE PIECES that were heavily encased in foam. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE there. The one downside with the pukani is the phosphate that will leach from it. Definitely worth the effort of cooking for a month though, great product!

I spent a lot of time researching rock and decided to get base rock so I would not introduce anything into my tank. Honestly LFS rock looks like picked over garbage compared to this. The quality far exceeds LFS stock.

My wife bought me 15lbs of this and 15lbs of eco rock for my birthday. I'm sure it looked funny seeing a grown man being so happy to get a box of rocks for his birthday! These things had great shape and size and were super porous. I was able to make several different configurations and then I broke out the hacksaw to see what crazy scape I could come up with. these rocks are just as easy to cut as shown in the BRS tv episode. Highly recommend these, but be sure to give them a good pressure washing and also a good idea to "cook" them. If you don't want to bother with some diy work on your rocks, opt for the eco rock.

The stuff looks great, and ends up being the best. It LEECHES phosphate, eventually you will get it under control, but search for curing it with lanthium, it takes a couple days, but FIXES all the issues that are knocks against this rock.

This is my favorite dry rock because it looks the most natural underwater. Also take a look at the videos on aquascaping, they are really helpful in designing a natural environment. One quick word of advice...these rocks can leach phosphates.

Pukani rock looks great and allows you to aquascape outside the tank. My aquascape outside the tank never works out once I start placing the rock in the tank, you quickly realize the great $$ savings over live rock when you pull out a Pukani rock that has been in the tank for a while...way heavier!
So easy and looks wonderful By Frank on 2/12/2013
Frank would recommend this product to a friend
This was a great value and much more cost effective than buying from a LFS and I saved nearly $3 per pound vs buying live rock. Since I was starting a tank, I purchased this rock weeks before I needed it and had it cured by the time I needed it. This rock is so easy to shape and interlocks well that I have no concerns about rocks falling. Finally, it looks beautiful...truly, my neighbors are astounded and think that I had a professional setup the reef...it was my first time...if I can do it, trust me...you can as I have no artistic skills at all, until now.
Pukani rock is a great buy but takes some effort! By Stephanie on 2/12/2013
Stephanie would recommend this product to a friend
Ordered 60 lbs of this rock and have 40 more lbs on the way. Very porous, very beautiful but also has decaying life, like sponges but that is to be expected as this is from the ocean and is very porous. I did an acid bath and powerwashed most sponges off. Rock is very easy to chisel into amazing pieces. I was able to make tunnels, caves, and bridges using hammer, chisels, and a small rotary tool. Absolutely worth the work as this rock is so beautiful. Definitely won't be buying any other rock after this one. I will be testing for phosphates and adding lanthanum chloride if needed, do your research.

I recently ordered 20 pounds of Pukani rock and had requested one large rock. BRS did deliver on the size but the rock was quite dense and dull nothing like what they show on the videos. As this was a request from a client who has been watching the BRS videos he was not happy with the look and density of the rock and I spent the rest of the day driving across town to hand pick one large live rock from a local dealer. As this is a custom 360' view aquarium sitting in the center of his lobby he was set on using one large rock with minimal manipulation. I would recommend the Reef Saver Rock over the Pukani any day. I will most likely break the rock down into smaller more interesting shapes for another project. I did learned a valuable lesson. Clients don't know what they want until they see it. And don't count on getting the awesome example of Pukani rock they show on the video to be anything like what will be shipped to you.

Before I ordered this I thought I would spend alot of time stacking etc. I originally ordered 100 pounds for two 72x24x18 tanks. I temporarly placed all of the rock in one of them. If were trying to fill the complete tank this amount pretty well filled the tank and it looked great without the water. Most of the rocks for my order (large tank) were 14" wide by a 10" high. I didn't have to stack anything.

Just got my order of 20lbs of Pukani and all I can say is I wish I started with this 2 years ago. 20 lbs was enough to fill about 30 gallons of tank space in my can for cycling process. I'm sure as porous as this rock is the bacteria growth will be awesome.
Love the Pukani - not the other thing By dtawahn on 2/12/2013
dtawahn would recommend this product to a friend
We received the pukani rock after much research on the web. We enjoyed the videos and look of the rock and were excited when the 100lbs came in. I unloaded all the rocks and cured them for a month. However, there was one massive rock that didn't look anything like the rest. After moving them around and "aqua-scaping" I discovered it was a totally different rock from the rest. It was sharp and after some looking around at other fish stores, it seemed to be a 20lb lava rock. We now have a saltwater reef tank and cannot afford to have sharp rocks hurting our fish. The rest of the rock looks great and we are happy with it.

Vincent would recommend this product to a friend
I wish I started out with this rock years ago. I had to restart my tank because the initial Live Rock contained coral eating nudibranchs that I could never full get rid of. This stuff not only looks 10x better than Fiji rock, it is lighter and much more porous. I only had to use 25 lbs in my 34 gallon nano, and I could have gotten away with much less! You save so much money going the Dry Rock route, and its free of pests.
I'll have to check on Phosphates over time, but so far so good. Both the Reef Saver and Pukani Rock are excellent choices.

I ordered 100 pounds of this rock the other day and recieved the following day without having to pay for additional overnight shipping (awesome). packaged well in 2 boxes with foam peanuts galore protecting the rock...took me forever to unpack the foam peanuts...lol. the foam peanuts were a good thing though as i had very minimal breakage during shipping. excellent specimens to use in my new 120 gallon reef....very porous so i imagine it will work well as a part of my biological filtration. i am seeding it now with 20 pounds of live rock that i got from a friend.

I ordered 52 lbs of this rock, to aquascape my 75 gallon reef. It's beautiful and very easy to cut and chisel, if needed. I would have given 5 stars for all but, I received 3 bigger pieces, that really didn't match the look of the other Pukani in the box. No worries though, I used those as fillers in the scape. By the way, 52 lbs was MORE than enough and I used some in my fuge.
I still have a few pieces left over!

This is a very porous rock which means you get more rock for less money. The shipment I received did have 1 12lb piece that was not Pukani however I liked the look of it and so used it anyway. You need to pay attention to make sure you remove all the dead sponge off this rock. My shipment had a couple pieces with quite a bit of dead sponge still attached.
