I just started a new 55 gallon tank with 20 lbs of live rock. I was looking to add more rock but could not afford to go with more live. I stubbled upon this site on one of the forums and I'm so glad I did. I ordered the rocks on a Tuesday and they came on Friday (paid the lowest price for shipping). The rocks were packed extremely well and there were very few crumbles of rock at the bottom. I ordered 25 lbs and received 7 pieces, two of which are fairly large. I've read reviews on here that state they are brittle but the ones I received were very hard to break. I tried to break the largest one to make 2 smaller pieces and failed. I even tried to smash in on the cement which did not work. Overall, I am very pleased. I like the look they bring to the tank mixed with my live rock. Also, they fit together just like the video says. Great for beginners like myself. I will be ordering another 20 lbs soon.

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.
Great Alternative By Chris on 1/20/12

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.
Good Stuff By AG on 1/9/12

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 1/1/12
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
