Guilt-free aquascaping! By Weatherman on 1/17/2011
Weatherman would recommend this product to a friend
I was a bit skeptical of buying rock on-line and not being able to actually see it in person first. But, after reading lots of reviews and seeing the videos, I decided to take the plunge and order 45lbs to add to my 90gal reef tank. I had recently upgraded from a 45gal so I needed some additional rock to build up my new reef. I ordered it on a Thursday and received the box the following Tuesday. The pieces were fantastic! They were packaged inside a large, plastic bag and buried in peanuts in the box. None of them were touching each other. There was just a handful of rubble in the bottom of the bag but even the rubble was very interesting and unique. Perfect pieces for my jawfish nano tank.
The rocks were very clean, hardly any dust or pebbles in them. They were bright white but will color up nicely over time. Some even have some really pretty veins of quartz running through them. The variety of the shapes of rocks I received was impressive. The surface features are awesome, holes and little tunnels running all through them. Perfect places to mount coral frags. You could literally cover the surface of the rock with frags without using a drop of glue. The way they stack together makes it seem as if they came as a matched set. They almost interlock and fit well in just about any configuration. And they "hook in" to your existing live rock like they came off the same reef.
The best part, guilt-free aquascaping. Because let's face it, the reason most of us got into this hobby was to help preserve a tiny piece of the real reefs out there. If we can do that without damaging or even disturbing those reefs, with a product that is superior to any live rock I've seen anywhere, it's a win all the way around.

Got a 100 lb of the reef saver rock and it's currently cycling. The rock looks great, was clean, and very well packaged. As always BRS is great to deal with and have great products.

I just got my BRS dry rock for my 90g build and I'm pleased with what I see. One of the things that's nice about this rock is that it seems to really fit together well so it appears that building the aquascape will be straight forward.

I ordered 50lbs of this rock when I upgraded my tank. It's now been over a year since the upgrade and I can't tell which rock is which. Great holes for mounting plugs and stacks very easily just as described!

Ordered this once for my 55 gallon and decided that when I upgraded to the 110 I now have I order the same product. After some time the coraline has encrusted this "dry base rock" and you can hardly tell that it was ever stark white when it arrived.

Great rock for anyone looking to start a saltwater aquarium at a low price per pound. The pieces fit great together without the need of epoxy. Tank is looking great and no bad hitchhikers.

Just recieved my rock last night and was pleasently suprised. Just like the others have said the rock was packaged neat and well protected with hardly any rubble damage. The rock looks better in person than it does on the internet pictures and video. I started to stack some pieces to see how easy the aqua scaping would be and let me tell you this is some great stuff to set up. I know it will take longer for it to be an established reef tank, but I can't see myself paying 3 to 4 times the amount for the live stuff again.
Beautiful Rock! and great value By Wayne on 10/26/2010
Wayne would recommend this product to a friend
Wow! I LOVE this rock and BRS! I ordered 15 pounds expecting a couple rocks. I RECEIVED 7 SUBSTANTIALLY sized pieces and it's really beautiful.
I guess because it's dry it weighs less than live rock. I added it to my 220 reef already filled with live rock and I'm hoping it will eventually be filled with life also. A few baby britle stars already have moved in.
My only problem is my LUCK. OF COURSE, 3 days after I pay 2.49 per pound they put it on sale for 2.25!

WOW! I'm blown away by my rock order. I ordered a lot of Pukani rock, and asked for mostly large pieces for my 120. I got huge pieces. This is great dry rock. To say it's porous would be a gross understatement. Being natural coral rock means it doesn't look real, it is real.
I also go some eco rock which is also really nice. Can't wait to aqua scape!

Good sized pieces that are grapefruit size or larger. They stack just as easy as shown in the BRS help video. Since the rock comes dry you get a very large volume for the amount of weight you pay for. Very good value.

I ordered 50lbs of rock and received it 3 days later. BRS does a amazing job packaging for shipment. The rock came in a big box full of peanuts which separated each piece. The rock itself sits in huge bags an is well protected. The rock arrived in pristine condition and there is not even a 1/4 pound of break-off due to shipment, good stuff!!
Now about the rock itself. Very clean beautiful pieces. The rock is somewhat brittle but not enough to worry about one bit. Very porous and great shapes. When I opened the box I thought, WOW, this is probably the coolest looking base/dead rock I have ever seen!!
If your considering buying base rock for your reef look no further, BRS will do you right with this eco friendly steal of a deal!!

I received my Eco rock a week ago and was very happy with the selection of product delivered. The product was well described and delivered as such. I requested rock that would compliment the square design of my tank and was very pleased with the many possible combinations of layouts I can put together. Of what little rubble that was in the box, more than likely happened during shipping. I like very much the idea of using this rock over stripping our natural reefs and only wish I had found this product earlier.

I just received my shipment of 100lbs of this rock which came in two boxes, the packaging was excellent almost no (yes you read that right no) breakage or dust. The first box contained 5 med to large pieces and the second had 8 small to medium pieces all together a great assortment, they were very porous almost completly dust free. I will order this rock again and again. I regret every pound of rock I bought that wasn't BRS Reef Saver rock. Take my word save your money and buy this stuff from day one you wont regret it I don't.

This rock is amazing! I ordered 15 lbs for a nano. They do come in quite large chunks (maybe about the size of nerf football or something) so if you have a nano, you may have to break a few to get it to fit the way you want. I was very easily able to chisel a small cave-like over hang into one of them.
Very reasonable shipping costs to canada and they came in almost perfect condition with barely any rubble. They stack very easily and have so many nooks and crannies. It's perfect for pod populations as they hide in the small holes where fish can't get to them and decimate their numbers.
Would definitely buy again when I get a larger tank!

This rock is exactly as advertised. I felt like a kid trying to work out a rockscape prior to placing it in my tank. It has a very pleasing look to it and was definitely an excellent addition. Shipping wasn`t bad to Canada either and the box arrived with only a few crumbs in it; no rubble :). I will definitely be grabbing some more in the near future.

I came home for lunch today and sure enough about 3 days later i have two large boxes sitting on the porch! I could barely contain myself as i raced to the fishroom and pulled out the pocket knife to remove pesky tape!!! This stuff was very well packaged and all the rock was in very good condition as far as breakage all i had were a few crumbs in the bottom of the bag that were so small you couldnt even consider them rubble. Ups banged the boxes up pretty good so I was surprised the stuff was so durable. Its the most porous rock I have ever seen and it resembles a huuuuuuuuge chunk of swiss cheese with all the nooks and crannies. This will be used in my new tank that im starting and I will be seeding it with a few pieces of established rock. I CANT WAITTT!!! THANKS BRS!

I just received 75lbs of this Reef Saver rock and was blown away by how awesome it was. I was originally planning on getting 100lbs of Fiji but after reading the great reviews on the reef saver I decided to only get 25lbs of Fiji...and boy am I glad I did!
I personally like the reef saver rock way better than the Fiji and honestly kind of regret getting the Fiji. The reef saver rock looks so much better, very porous and light.
The packaging and rock were in excellent shape with little to no rubble...even though it was shipped through UPS :)
A big thumbs up to BRS for this excellent rock....don't hesitate to buy!

This is great stuff. I bought a little to see what it would look like and I was amazed at how porous it was and how well it stacked. Every piece looked as good or better than it did in the picture. Just like they say, it will stack seamlessly, you can't tell where one ends and the next begins. Plan on using this for my 150 I'm setting up here in a couple months.
