Wonderful way to start your tank. Rock comes carefully shipped and was surprisingly intact with minimal rubble.

I can't believe this stuff. I upgraded from a smaller tank to a 180 and had 104 pounds of tonga kealini rock that I really liked and didnt think I would find a rock I was happier with. I wanted to double the amount of rock I had in the tank to fill it in well. My budget only allowed 50 pounds of this rock right now. (building this slowly). But its a good thing. I have no idea what I would have done with 100 pounds of this. The 50 pounds of pukani equaled the size of my 103 pounds of kealini. Not at all exaggerating, it may even be more volume wise. Great looking rock, big light pieces. Super happy.
BRS ROCKS!! By Bryce on 2/12/2013

I have ordered Pukani twice now and this last order I went with one rock which was 12 pounds and I asked that BRS send me a show piece to fulfill my order that would be the center piece of my 65 gallon and I was ecstatic about the rock I got. The rock is 17" tall 13" wide and shaped like an upside down triangle and it stands on its own after I cut 1/2 inch off the bottom and it is how it naturally grew when it was in the ocean. It will be the perfect platform for the sps corals I want up high. Thanks BRS for allowing us too add comments to our orders and for actually fulfilling customers requests!! I do recommend curing this rock for 3-4 weeks in saltwater, I just use the water from my other tanks water changes.
I wish live rock from LFS was like this By Subodh on 2/12/2013

I got fed up of the hitch hikers and pests that come in local fish store purchased pukani live rock. If you already have any piece of pukani you already know its real great for stacking up, for fitting those coral plugs as if they are a natural fit and the ease of poking holes and making natural looking caves is un-surpassable. To make things even better, any amount of pukani stacked up lookes like a natural coral reef on its own, it doesn't look like its made of individual pieces.
The pukani rock from BRS arrived in well packaged (overly packgaed I should say) large shipping boxes and boy are they beautiful. Almost every piece comes in a triangualr shape with a near perfect base on the narrow side, plenty of holes and crevices in which I could fit the corals or argonite plugs and they are prstine/clean. The rock weighs so little that I was surprised to see just 20 lbs of rock was more than 4 times what I had from the LFS (live pukani rock) and many times more beautiful and configurable. Now I just need to wait until this rock gets the live-ness from the others so I can throw the LFS rocks away. No pests or hitchhikers of any sort although I cured these rocks for 2 weeks in a separate tank before adding them to the main tank.
Good stuff By Nuno on 2/12/2013

I ordered some of this pukani rock and the 50lb box fiji rock out of the two I would say I like the fiji rock better because the coraline algea (neon green, pink purple) started growing on it faster. After about a month and a half to two months and now some pink/purple coraline algea is starting to grow on the pukani rock, but still great light rock.
Good base rock By wholland on 2/12/2013

This is really good base rock for your reef. I was pleased with the very large pieces, in fact, many were so large that they had to be broken into smaller components.
The rock was quite clean, although I noticed a small spike in both nitrate and phosphate for a few days following the installation of the rock in my aquarium.
Good quality, very porous By Trevor on 2/12/2013

I received some very large pieces of rock, which I used to make caves like BRS shows in their instructional video. Very easy to make numerous caves and flat pieces with just a chisel and hand saw. I will be using this as my base rock to support live rock pieces which I don't want to cut.
The rock was packaged well and there were almost no broken pieces. This rock is very light and porous, so you get a lot of rock for a little weight.
Got what i asked for By jeff on 2/12/2013

I asked for watermelon sized rock and thats exactly what they sent. Very light and porous. This rock is harder to aquascape than the reef saver stuff but for me it was worth the extra time.

Amazing Rock By Reefm@ster on 2/12/2013

I was very concerned about using "live rock" as I had many challenges with nuisance organisms in previous tanks.
I decided to go with dry rock this time and I cannot be more satisfied. The rock is amazing and it is very easy to chisel and cut into any desired shape. My aquarium has been running for about 4 months now and the rock is about 50% covered with coralline algae.

Excellent Rock! By Wayne on 2/12/2013

I purchased 55lbs of this rock for my 90 gallon reef tank (to replace all my old very heavy rock that was hard to keep stacked and place corals upon. This shipment was well packed and had only a few pounds of rubble. Also there was very little organic matter on it to remove. I specified that I needed two show pieces so that the remaining rock would allow me to aquascape around the two large pieces. To my surprise, although at first I was disappointed, I got three large pieces which ranged from 13-17 lbs each! These are large pieces that go from half way to 2/3 of the way up the tank. In the end I'm very happy with what I received because I have three large towers and nothing else on the bottom to stack or balance and it has left me with a lot of exposed bottom in the tank to place corals. This is the most impressive aquascaping I have ever seen with the three towers! There are plenty holes and crevices on each piece to place corals on so I'm totally happy. I this is the best rock to work with IMO and it's well worth the price. I'll never have any other type of rock and my only regret is that I wasted money on my original rock instead of going right to the Pukani rock. Thank you BRS!
