Great Alternative By Chris on 1/20/2012

I got several pounds of these to add to existing Fiji Live Rock already in my tank when I upgraded from a 50g to 90g tank. I currently have them soaking to clean them up, but already I can see that these will go into my aquascape very easily, and add some great diversity to it. Came a little dusty, but great shapes, lots of small holes, which my fish will love. Definitely recommend and you can't beat the price.

I received 51 lbs of this product. I was very pleased when it arrived. It was packed really well. There weren't hardly any pieces broken off. All the pieces were of good size and looked great. It is going to make an excellant addtion to my take. I highly recommend it.

I ordered 30 pounds and it is definitely 30 pounds, if not more. The rock is easy to work with in aquascaping. I followed instructions on the video to shape some of the rock and it worked well. Very happy with this product.
Good Stuff By AG on 1/9/2012

Rock pieces were large and interesting.
Packaging was high quality.
Easy to aquascape.
Of course, this rock doesn't really look as good a real live rock and it doesn't contain all the interesting life and surprises that come with real live rock.

This rock looks natural and stacks good. It is white and porous to help with stacking. Great product, bought 60 pounds and I will buy more.
Reef Saver Rock By Will on 1/1/2012

First, BRS rocks! Literally. The reef saver rocks arrived in great shape. Only one rock was chipped. The packaging was 5 stars. Also, the price was the best that I could find on-line. Now my review.
1) Good price/value.
2) The rocks fit together well. With a little epoxy, these rocks can be stacked together like Legos.
3) Fairly strong but not as strong as real rock.
4) Over time, these rocks will "resemble" real rock and coralline algae does grow on them.
5) Eco-friendly. Does not come from the ocean.
1) Brittle. These "rocks" crack/chip easily.
2) Powdery. Rocks need to be rinsed thoroughly. Your water will be cloudy for a few days even after numerous rinses.
3) Not real rock. If you want a tank that looks like the ocean then I would stay with real rock. Nothing can replace mother nature.
4) This rock may increase your phosphate levels. So, monitor your levels for a few days.
5) These rocks are very white and bleached looking.
So, if you want a real, natural looking reef tank then stay with live rock but help save the environment and use this rock as base rock. For example, if you needed 150 pounds of live rock. You could use 50 pounds of reef rock as your base. This would definitely help the environment and your wallet. I hope this review was helpful.

Still working on my 120G. Ordered 120lbs and got 133 of Reef Saver. Nice sizes in boxes. Packaged better than i would have thought. out of 133lbs i got maybe 4lbs of Rubble, That i will thank UPS for as it looked like they dropped the one box. Lots of caves and passage ways for the future fish to swim in, Thanks BRS

first off ordered 50lb and received 55lb which is great. after unpacking the peanuts saw the 2 bags of rocks, they were packed so well that there was less then 1lb of breakage. gave them a quick washing to get them rinsed then into tank.they fit together with a test fit so well at they looked like on big continuous rock

I decided to go wih dry rock over live rock this time around because of the horrible experiences I have had with pests and algae. Wouldn't look back one bit. Very nice rocks, very porous and full of crags and caves. Would recommend this to anyone.
Amazing By TheBull on 12/25/2011
TheBull would recommend this product to a friend
This rock is light, porous and full of hiding places. Stacks seamlessly. I had 1/2 a pound of rubble in a 50 pound box. Packing was great.
I ordered 50 pounds for my 34 gal Solana because it's cheap and i wanted some aquascaping options. I might be able to fit 30-35 pounds of it in the tank and it will be full of rock. I couldn't fit all 50 pounds if i tried.
Don't hesitate. This is the best rock at the best price with no impact on wild reefs. It's a no brainer
