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.
Great Rock for the Money By Randolph on 2/13/13

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.

I really like this rock. It's very light and has many odd shapes that i really like. I like it so much that i am probably going to order more.
Too many organics By Cody on 2/13/13

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

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

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

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.
Great product By Alfred on 2/13/13

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.
