Reef Saver Rock By Will on 1/1/2012
Will would recommend this product to a friend
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
Very nice dry rock. By Brian on 12/28/2011
Brian would recommend this product to a friend
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

This rock is awsome! I orderd 39-40lbs and got around 45lbs. I would suggest this rock to any one new-old to the hobby. Looks good in tank and joins together perfectly.

Not much can be said that hasn't already been said! This rock truly is amazing. All the pieces fit together perfect just like in the videos. I wish I would have known about this sooner so I could have used reefsaver for all my rock! All my pieces were as white as can be, so I didn't have to cure anything, just a quick rinse and plopped em right end.
If your torn between this and the pukani...double up on this. The pukani can't even compare

It is fantastic looking with the purple coraline. Stacks nice and the fish love it. Great price, order enough to get the free shipping and save more! I split some with a friend and he loves it as well.
Very Nice Rock By Loren on 12/2/2011

I ordered 46 pounds of this rock and was very pleased when it arrived. There was about 2 pounds worth of broken rubble but they shipped 49 pounds anticipating that. This rubble will be great in the fuge or as natural looking reef "plugs". The rock itself looks great, can't wait to start aquascaping with it! Be careful when you take the rocks out of the box. be sure to shake the rubble off before you place it outside the box or you will have tiny rubble pieces everywhere.

Well, the five starts and 125+ reviews says it all. Narly, interesting, light, clean rock- and no-impact on the reef. Doesn't get any better. I plan to "cook" it in a tank with some aqua-cultured critter kits and a few coralline pieces to kick-start things, for a zero-impact reef tank. Bravo to BRS for carrying it.

You can stack this rock easily and it fits together well. Also I ordered 50 pounds of rock from bulkreefsupply.com and received more rock than I ordered, around 55-60 pounds, which is always a plus.

i have had many types of rock and by far this is the best rock for the money. you get big pieces of rock, they set well together, and the best thing is they look very natural

I personally perfer this rock over all the other live rock, as i personally like the white look. Beware though, it leaks phosphates like crazy, so remeber to rinse very well before thorwing it into you tank
really nice rok for the price By Cory on 11/11/2011

Really nice clean rock. I ordered 10# of this rock not knowing what to expect. I got three good sized pieces, much more than i expected. it was very clean vs. the pukani I got. i dont think you would even have to cure this rock, just rinse really good. very pleased with it.
Unmatched... By George on 11/11/2011
George would recommend this product to a friend
Just received 70lbs of the reef saver, and it is absolutely fantastic. I simply ask BRS to put together pieces appropriate for a 145 gal reef tank and they did a phenomenal job.
The shipping and packaging was great. Very little rubble, much less then expected. In fact barely any, so I guess I need to order some rubble for the sump. The pieces are a variety of shapes with endless aqua-scaping possibilities.
I could not be happier and in fact I am ordering more since it is so much nicer then the rock I already had. There is no reason to look any further for rock, this is what everyone would want the first time they see it.

always purchased the pukani in the past and went with the reef saver the last time. definately would never get it again. you get much more bank for the buck with the pukani which i highly reccomend.
disappointed, with the reef saver : (

Just OK, brittle pieces, good price By Chris on 10/20/2011
Chris wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
This product had a really good price. The rock did fit nicely with other pieces of "Reef Saver" rock. The only problem was that it was really brittle. Pieces broke off easily, so I was a little disappointed. There was also a lot of rubble in the package. However, BRS packed extra rock for this reason. They also gave me the sizes that I wanted. I was happy with my purchase.
