Dry live rock By Serene on 2/9/2015

The rock itself is very unique and has a beautiful structure that can allow you have it as a standalone rock as a design within your reef aqua escape.
The downside is the size that won’t allow you playing much with alone rock, if possible it will be in a very limited shapes. But to me I really loved the look of it and I’m looking forward to start adding it to my tank and play a bit to get my final look.

I was undecided on which rock to purchase for my new 65 gallon tank (looking to move from FOWLR to Reef in the near future). I purchased this rock because of the price per pound. When it arrived I have 3 different aquascapes within 20 minutes. It was easy to work with and my final aquascape looks great (imho). I would buy this again for any future tank.

This rock is easy to aquascape. They really fit together in almost any combination. First order came and some of the rocks were broken into small pcs and a lot of dust, would have been great it they packed it in the foam they use for Ro Di system. Second order came much better. Overall the product is great.
Great rock, but leaches phosphates By Reefer on 2/2/2015
Reefer would recommend this product to a friend
I used this rock to cycle a 200 gallon system. Was tired of dealing with hitchhiker pests in my old tank so wanted to start my new build using 100% dry rock. I have been very satisfied with this rock. It looks great and it's so nice to not have to deal with any pests anymore. This rock stacked very good and the look is pretty much seamless.The only problem I found with it is the rock did leach phosphates and I had a hair algae outbreak because of this. So even though its the cleanest rock BRS offers it will still leach phosphates. So I would recommend running GFO the first few months after you cycle this rock. That being said I would use this rock again in a heartbeat. Very pleased with this rock.

I purchased this rock (150 pounds) to supplement some cultured live rock I already had for my two 90 gallon tanks. Delivery was fast. The rock had excellent packaging which resulted in very little rubble. BRS did a great job of selecting sizes... be sure to inform them of the size tanks you are setting up so they can best select piece size for you. I am glad to purchase a quality product that is not making an impact on current, active reefs in our oceans.
Loving the Dry Rock By RNMike on 1/21/2015
RNMike would recommend this product to a friend
This was my first endeavor using dry rock. I wanted to try something different with this tank. I was tired of the pests that come with live rock, and the typical scape that looks like a pile of rocks. The Reef Saver stacks together so well, it's almost like it locks together. I used no glue, and my scape is solid, and looks amazing. If you are thinking of trying this rock, do it!!!

Great Rock and Great Packaging By Nate on 1/13/2015
Nate would recommend this product to a friend
The first thing that I noticed when I opened my packages of rock today was the quality packing job. The rock was in a large plastic bag tied with a zip tie and surrounded with an ample amount of packing peanuts. I have recently purchased some rock from another online supplier and the rock did not fare quite as well in shipment.
The rock itself is really nice. It is a bit denser than I expected when I first picked some up, but the external textures and features are really nice looking and it is really easy to arrange into a good looking display.

I ordered 100LBS of this rock and it came in about 13-15 pieces. All pieces were very clean and perfect sized. The interlocked together easily. I soaked them in RODI water for over a week and tested and PO4 came up as 0.00. Awesome rock!

Absolutely love the stuff. Great buy! first box of two was packaged great, however when i opened the second box the rocks were sub par (which i understand happens) but At least would've liked them to put the opening of the bag on the top instead of on the side of box like they did with the first box. But i would defiantly buy again and again

20 pound order was packaged well in tough plastic bags and boxed with foam packing peanuts. There was only a handful of rubble and no substantial breakage. The rock is slightly heavy but it has excellent form, is great looking and easily aquascaped. I feel especially good about using this rock since it's collection doesn't adversely impact natural reef environments.

Ordered 50 lbs which was perfect to fill a 40 gal corner tank 24 on sides 24" deep, in fact had some left over.
I was amazed as how well it shipped. The rock is absolutely natural looking if you take your time to fill in the gaps.
Used some pvc pipe as base, zip ties, and the BRS gel glue to form before placing in your tank. Take your time, look at it and live it before you add water.

Bought #100 and put in a new 90 mixed tank and fuge about 8 months ago. Found it is very easy to shape or trim with a chisel or just a #3 hammer. It's a little rough on the hands when you work with it so wear gloves. Love that it has all kinds of holes for the critters and fish to duck into. Also works well for sticking corals into. easy to drill if there isn't a place for a coral plug where you want it....and hey...any body who's got any passion for this "hobby" knows that any thing we can do to save the reefs is a must do, and this product does that!

Decided to go with dry rock on my rebuild after moving. Bought about 70lbs for my 90 gallon. Was surprised at how good the mixture of rock sizes were. Some big some medium a few small, hardly no breakage or rubble. Easy to aquascape and break if needed. I broke a few pieces to make them fit my scape better. Would recommend to anyone!

I bought 50 lbs of this and it is worth the price, unlimited possibilities of what you can do with these. Watch the video.

BRS is great, and this product is no exception.
I contacted BRS through their online chat, and received a recommendation for quantity in my new 110g reef tank. In the comments, I gave the size and dimensions of the tank, and BRS chose a great selection of rock for my tank. Not too small, not too large.
Be aware that due to the weight of the boxes, UPS may beat the dickens out of the box. BRS packs the rock really well. The first box arrived in great shape - only about 1 cup of dust/crumbs. The second box was handled by UPS guerrillas. I had a full 10 pounds of dust/crumbs/shards (nothing larder than a nickel) in a 50 lb box.

I wasn't sure about getting this at first after reading some reviews. This is my first time buying Dry Rock, but since the majority of the reviews were positive I took the plunge. I purchased 80lbs of rock and when I received it, the package was damaged. I took pictures and video before opening anything just incase, but once it was opened, everything was still perfect. They package the crap out of everything which helped it survive. I got amazing rock. Several Large pieces and of course smaller ones. I hardly had any rubble which was good and bad. Now I need to actually order some so I can put some in my Sump.
I would definitely recommend this product!!!

Ordered this for a shallow mangrove tank (24x24x12) Made comments regarding the tank size and its use and got some killer looking rock! I ordered about 28 pounds of it and got way more than I could use, but really enjoyed the options and I can break up some bigger pieces to scape into others. Pretty happy with the order, was packed very securely as well.

I used a combo of dry rock and live rock to cycle my 55g. My LFS doesn't carry dry rock so I thought I would give the BRS reef saver rock a try. I like that it's taken from a quarry inland so it has no impact on the natural reef systems. It is very porous and light and completely natural looking. Easy to aquascape and fits securely with other rock in the tank. My only complaint would be the amount of rubble and dust in the bag and on the rock, but the description says this is to be expected. I definitely got what I paid for even with the rubble. This rock was clean enough that I could add it to my tank without curing, but be sure to rinse it well with fresh water prior to adding it to the tank as it will be covered with a fair amount of dust from shipping.

You don't really get what you pay for... By Jordan R on 8/23/2014
Jordan R would recommend this product to a friend
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!

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.
