Ive purchased that expensive live rock for previous tanks and now that i had tried this dry rock i will never go back. this stuff stacks and fits together just like the video shows but is very brittle the only downside i could find. i also ordered 10 pds of rock and they sent 13 expecting there be a few broken pieces but i had only a few ounces of broken rumble. packed way better than i expected. A++++ i would recammend to the advanced or beginner reefer.

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.

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
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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

I just assembled this in my brand new 60G cube. It doesn't even have water in it yet, but I'm already amazed at how good it looks! It was important to me to not use ocean-sourced rock.
Not only does this look better than most live rock you'd find in a local fish store, but it's a great value (several times cheaper), but it's also free of nuisance organisms and is much easier to sculpt before the tank has water in it.
As demonstrated in the BRS video, they really do "lock" together. I chose to glue them as well, because my sculpture is tall, and I didn't want a potential rock-slide to damage/destroy the tank. Often, after putting some pieces together, I would return to glue them, and couldn't tell where one rock ended and the next began without wiggling them, because they fit together so naturally. After filling in little spaces with rubble, it looks just like one big, seamless structure. Beautiful.

This is fantastic stuff and just as described. Might take me a little longer to get coraline growing but my tank is 5 months old and I have no serious algae issues. This rock was great to aquascape with and gave my tank a really natural look. I cycled with Dr. Tims with no problem. Id recommend this product to anyone setting up a new system.

I am extremely pleased with these rocks! First off the packaging was very secure and protected my rocks to a great degree, even after the UPS man threw my package over my fence! (not making this up). There were very few bits of rubble which found a home in my sump. The rocks are beautiful and extremely easy to aquascape. Just like the videos says, it will look seamless and not just a pile of rocks in your tank. My aquascape looks so good I considered keeping it a FOWLR tank! Also many of the rocks I receive were nice big pieces. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!

After getting my 67 gallon Red Sea Max setup, the next thing I needed to do was to get live rock. Lots of forum and ppl swear by the wet live rocks, but I figures these are cheaper / lighter way to go and BRS does have the cheapest price on these. Got them shipping free! And easy to aqua scape.
Watch the video they have comparing the rocks, that helped me a lot in deciding what to get

I purchase br from affordable aquatics and the base rock had 11 lbs of dust in the box when I opened it. ( I put it on a scale) after I order it the package was lost by AA. I talked to John and he said he would refund for my purchase and that was in june 11 it's now august and no refund. So I ordered from BRS and what a difference I had a had full of dust from the rock it was shipped to me on and it arrived 3 days later in excellent condition and it looks way better than the br from AFfordable aquatics. After talking to John several times about my refund to no avail he will not return my call or emails. Thanks BRS for taking care of me and sending me better quality br. me and our club will be ordering more from you thanks. Imhave emails from john and pics of AA rock compared to BRS. In this business trust is an asset for a company and Affordable Aquatics
And John doesnt have any.

SIMPLY AWESOME!!! By Phillip on 8/4/2011
Phillip would recommend this product to a friend
I have never bought from an online reef supplier before. These guys were very friendly and helpful. I ordered 85lbs of total rock( 55lb Pukani, 15lb Branch and 15lb of Shelf). All the rocks were amazing. No rubble on Shelf or Branch at all. About 1/2 cup of marble size or smaller rubble on the Pukani. Excellent (overkill) packaging. Everything arrived in great shape. The rocks are amazing. I asked for one large piece of each and an even mix of medium to small of the rest. The large pieces are really cool. The LG Pukani looks like a watermelon, the LG Branch looks like an 18in branched pc of wild BBQ wood, the Shelf is about 19in x 12in. All VERY NICE pieces. the mediums are about small football and the small are about softball size.
Excellent rock, you won't be dissapointed. Free shipping with that order made it an even better value.
I now see that I should have ordered more Branch and Shelf since they are more dense than the Pukani. The Pukani is alot of rock for the money. I will definitely order more Branch and Shelf when they are both back in stock.
