You don't really get what you pay for... By Jordan R on 8/23/2014

You get something with MUCH more quality than you expect for the price it's listed at.
First the rock comes packaged VERY well. It was in a thick plastic bag with a really strong twist tie to keep everything secure. I only found a centimeter-long tear along a seam and that was extremely surprising considering the porous and unique structure of this rock. It arrived in a sturdy shipping box FILLED with peanuts which protected the rocks from becoming rubble. Out of ten pounds I MAYBE had half of a cups worth of rubble/dust.
It has holes and ‘hide-aways’ all over every single piece. I actually took a screw driver and made more holes by just poking through the thin walls of the existing holes/ caves and it looks even better which is hard to believe! It was dusty, which is to be expected from dry rock, but washed away in a few light rinses of RODI water. The pieces I ordered for my 10G AIO were a little bigger than I had expected but that same fact proved to work in my favor. I needed baseball sized pieces to make archways/’cliffs’ and I received 2 pieces slightly larger than a softball and smaller baseball size pieces. When I went to break up the softball sized pieces they came apart in the perfect arches/unique shapes I was envisioning.
I did not have any BRS customer service issues with this order whatsoever. The ordering process was a breeze, the packaging was tip-top for ‘a box of rocks’, they gave me more than I had ordered (10lbs but package said 12.1lbs), and finally the quality to price ratio is out of this world with this product. I can’t WAIT to give BRS my money next time I’m in need. Thanks y’all!

When I picked up my order of rock, I was surprised that there were little rubble pieces. The rock was VERY pourus and light. Plus it is very easy to work with if you want to be creative with sculpting. Well worth it for the price.
Perfect Rock By Greg on 8/11/2014

Sure you can get shelf rock or Tonga branch or whatever. But you'll still need a base. This rock fits the mold for both base and a full out aquascape. Cycling the rock was fast and I haven't seen any PO4 leaching. If I have any complaint it's the amount of rubble that was in the box. But I saw the warning and knew to expect some so I ordered 5lbs extra for insurance.

Used this to start a 65g last october. It comes in great large sizes which can be broken down and shaped to your liking. Stacks great and kind of interlocks with each other.
Nice Base Rock By Chris on 7/22/2014

Make sure you cure this before adding to your system if it's going into an established one. I would recommend curing for about 2 weeks longer than you think you should. I cooked this rock in heated salt water for about a month and it wasn't quite enough when i added it to my system.
Easy to aquascape.... very porous.... lots of hiding places for critters.

It is a good way to reduce pests. I am not sure why people fight with live rock so much.

I just bought 30 pounds of Reef Saver and I can't wait to put it in a tank. I got more rock than I thought I would. I am very pleased with it.
Excellent Rock, but Rubble order not needed By Neil on 6/26/2014
Neil would recommend this product to a friend
I received 75 lbs of Reef Saver for my 75 gal tank. I also received the 10 lbs of rubble that I thought that I would need after watching a video on the Reef Saver and talking to a Customer Rep. Well, as it turns out, there must have been enough pieces broken off during shipping (note inside of shipment stated this may happen) that I didn't need the rubble. I had enough pieces in the main shipment to fill in any areas that I thought needed it. So, you may not want to waste your money on the rubble as I did. I really like the Reef Save rock as it fits together nicely. The recommended 1 lb/gal was just right for me.

I set up my current tank back in March of 2014. This was the first time I have used dry rock. I've always heard great things about the rock at BRS and let me say, it is absolutely true. I got great pieces, multiple sizes, and very holey rock! I did not see any problems regarding PO4 as some have claimed with dry rock. Plus the added benefit of knowing I didn't take rock from the ocean is appealing as well. You cannot go wrong with this purchase.
Great Purchase and Great Rock By Matt on 6/14/2014

With stores selling live rock at $7-$10 a pound, this is a great option to save some cash. I have a new 180 gallon tank and elected to buy half live rock locally and half dry rock from BRS. Saved $500 and more pleased with looks and sizes of the dry rock. The live rock will seed the dry rock and over time is will all become Excellent live rock. Pieces were large and some rubble in bottom to make frag plugs. A+++

Just received my order to day and I am very impressed with the rock. Very good quality and well packaged....very little breakage. What little breakage there was I will be able to use to attach frags and still have some left to use as rubble in my filtration system.
I would highly recommend this rock to anyone who is in the saltwater hobby.

I've used other dry rock before, but chose the BRS Reef Saver based on all the photos showing very good internal structure and openings in each and every rock. With the exception of 2-3 rocks out of a 50lb shipment, this is what I received.

A great price for the peace of mind of not getting any non desirable critters. Easy to place frags or build your favorite aquascape features.
Another great thing is you are not buying water weight your getting all you can get for the buck. This is the second order of rock from BRS!

Ordered 50 pounds for my 75 gallon tank and man does it stack up and flow nicely together! Even comes with a little bit of rubble in the box to fill in those little gaps to make it look even more natural! Should have ordered a few more pounds though haha.

this rock is so easy to work with. very easy to shape and cut. I bought 50lbs for my 54g tank and broke it all up to get the look I wanted. Nice that it came pest free. No bristle works, majanos or aptasias!
