I ordered 40lbs and gave BRS the size of my tank and they sent some excellent rock. Almost no rubble from shipping. I constructed numerous landscapes with the rock and each one was getting better and better. The Reef Saver Rock is definitely the way to go. Thanks BRS !!

I was reluctant to buy rock that was a) not live rock and b) I had not hand picked. But I decided to give it a shot - because BRS has a great reputation. I asked for a very large piece for my new aquarium and held my breath. It arrived very quickly. It was very well packaged and arrived in flawless shape. But more important, it is a thing of beauty. By far the nicest piece I have ever seen. I did a couple minor cuts (following the great advice and Instruction on the video!) and ended up with the piece sitting exactly as I want. You just can't do that with live rock. This piece is not live today . . . but it will become so . . . and it will be well worth the wait. Awesome piece, exceptional price.

I received my rock today and I have to tell you that it is truly an excellent rock! It looks so much better in person. The pieces I got are a great size. I can't wait to get my reef up and going. Very little rubble. Thanks BRS !!

Awesome rock for aquascaping, always seems to fit together no matter how it is placed. Also the broken pieces of rubble are perfect for fragging, the rubble looks much better than frag disks and plugs.

My rock was packaged nicely with very little breakage. I requested specific sizes and got exactly what I asked for. The pieces fit together so perfectly, there are endless possibilities. Thanks BRS!!

I used the dry reefsaver rock in my 75g and love it. After you get it chipped away to sit flush you can not tell where one rock ends and the other begins. This rock is super porous!

I bought 50 lbs of this rock and couldnt be happier! It looks great and is so easy to aqua scape. 50 Lbs gave me 8 big pieces, which are easily broken into smaller peices if needed. The rock has been in the tank for about 2 months and is starting to purple up. I seeded my rock with some live rock rubble from LFS.

The only rock to get By Edward on 1/28/13

Simply put - there is no better way to go. First, this rock does not need to be cured (unlike many other dry rocks). Second, it doesn't hurt our reefs. Third, it looks great. Fourth, it's about as inexpensive as you can get. Fifth, it doesn't leach phosphate.
I have had a HORRIBLE experience with live rock that came with some nasty hitchhikers - namely fireworms. And once they are in your tank, they are a nightmare to get out. They can kill fish, inverts, even corals, and multiply extremely quickly.
Go with BRS reef saver and some Dr. Tim's One and Only nitrifying bacteria and your tank and you will be set up for true success. Early on, grab some non-porous (clam/mussel shells work great) pieces of coralline pieces from a live rock tank (just make absolutely sure there is no way a hitchhiker could be present - thats why it should be non porous) and place them in with the reef saver rock. That will get your coralline going in tandem with your cycle.
Spend your money on Pukani instead of Reef Saver Rock By Elle on 1/22/13

Last year I ordered 25 lbs of pukani rock to add to my 90g tank, which arrived in 6 large porous rocks that were absolutely stunning! I couldn't have been happier. This year I'm setting up a new smaller tank and wanted to add some additional rock to my 90g. I debated getting the pukani rock again but decided to go with 50 lbs of reef saver rock, thinking it would be similar enough. Boy was I wrong. The amount of rock that arrived was visually less than the pukani rock from last year, even though I ordered twice as much. The reef saver rock is incredibly dense and heavy, so you get far less of it with your order. I thought that 50 lbs of reef saver would be enough for my new 40g tank and give me some left over to add to my 90g. Instead I'm going to have to order more rock just to fill the new tank, let alone add more rock to the existing tank. While the rock is pretty rock and makes nice interlocking structures, you will get far more for your money if you buy the pukani rock. I wish I'd ordered 50 lbs of pukani instead - while I would have paid more up front I would have had a lot more to show for it and wouldn't be stuck spending even more money just to get enough rock to fill the tank. Bottom line, spend your money on pukani, you'll save yourself money in the long run.
I should also mention that I also bought the 50 lb box of fiji rock last year, which was also far more rock than the amount of reef saver rock that arrived on my doorstep yesterday. Reef saver rock is the heaviest and densest of the three types offered by BRS and in my opinion is not cheaper enough to justify buying it over the other two types.

Told BRS what my tank size was and they sent me 4 proportionately sized rocks rather than a single 12 pounder. Also the rock was very clean and was easy to work with. I made 5 aquascapes in a matter of minutes.
