Why does BRS recommend this?
BRS Pukani Rock is by far our customer’s favorite rock. It yields the most volume per pound compared to other styles of rock, with tons of nooks and crannies for corals to be placed and small critters to hide out. BRS Pukani Rock is pest and algae free to give the best start for any new tank. It also has the ability to be shaped, drilled, or cut depending on the aquascape it will be used with.
Unable to ship to Canada
Pukani is available in a wide variety of sizes.
- BRS Pukani Large 18+" Dry Live Rock is generally 18" or more in diameter. Sold by the pound with a minimum order of 30 lbs.
BRS recommends curing all rock before being used in an established system
BRS Pukani Dry Aquarium Live Rock - our lightest and most porous and full of holes that become nice homes and passage ways for your tank's inhabitants. Like all of our dry rock, Pukani is free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs. It is guaranteed to be free of apitasia, bubble algae, parasitic isopods, mantis shrimp, acro eating flat worms, little red bugs, fire worms, predatory nudibranchs, pyramidellid snails and other common pests.
Using Dry Rock has the following advantages:
- Low initial cost on premium types of rock.
- Pound for pound a way better value - no water weight.
- Can be shipped standard UPS ground which saves a fortune on shipping.
- Absolutely pest free. This is the most important reason. This allows you to completely avoid all of the most common aquarium pests that plague most aquarists.
How much rock do I need?
Knowing exactly how much Dry Live Rock you will need can be one of the hardest questions to answer since every tank and rock will be slightly different. A general guideline for Pukani Dry Live Rock, we suggest 2/3 pounds of rock per gallon of display tank volume and may vary depending on your overall goal for the aquascape. We always recommend purchasing a little extra dry rock to ensure that you will have enough to complete the aquascape you are looking for, any extra rock can always be broken up and placed in your refugium, overflows, and sump for added filtration.
BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Rock. However, the UPS automation is not always gentle on heavy products like this and they do not consider this product insurable. Because of this, there is some inherent risk with shipping rock like this across the country and it is impossible to replace or refund broken pieces. If this happens most pieces can be repaired with epoxy.
NOTE: This rock does come out of the ocean and may have some dead material on it such as sponges or other critters. We strongly suggest soaking or curing the rock before use in an active aquarium.
Dry live rock is not available for shipment to Canada due to high tariffs. Please consider Reef Saver rock as it is not subject to these fees and is our favorite of the dry rocks available.
Amazing By Larry on 3/31/2018Larry would recommend this product to a friendThe rock came bigger than expected and was packaged very well. It’s a beautiful piece of rock and looks amazing in my tank. The one huge rock looks better than a pile of rocks and made my aquarium look way more natural. They picked a real quality piece of rock they sent. Thank you BRS
Great Big Pieces By Bill on 2/21/2018Bill would recommend this product to a friendOrdered 50 pounds and got two huge pieces, they look amazing. Thank you BRS, very happy!
Cool rock By Jonkarl on 2/18/2018Jonkarl would recommend this product to a friendVery nice rock. Came as one giant rock in the box. Cool shape.
Great size By Doc on 1/31/2018Doc would recommend this product to a friendRestarted my tank after some years so I used my old rock and wanted a nice big piece to fill the tank in and the rock came in big like I ordered and look great will order more
wheres the glue???? By Billy on 12/7/2017Billy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI sent an email on December 4th about the persistent delays by the shipping company and got no response from you guys. I did finally get the two boxes / pieces on Tuesday the 5th. I opened the boxes last night and see that my two 18" pieces of pukani are now 12 pieces. Doubt this will be seen by other reviewers but wanted to ask "where is the glue for putting my pieces together to make the two 18" pieces"???? BTW... your support email response time is horrible and I now think you have forgotten your roots are think your to big to fail
Looks great. Great packing job. By David on 11/30/2017David would recommend this product to a friend38332
Good pick By Jake on 11/22/2017Jake would recommend this product to a friendOrdered 70lbs. I'd say that there is about 70 here. Recieved 4 pieces. 2/4 are awesome. And right aroumd the 18" size. 1/4 is large and unique but not as porous. I still think I can do something neat with it. And the last 1/4 is close to 2' long, 1' tall, and 1' from front to back. Not very porous either, but has one fascinating end. Ill place that end facing front of tank and will look amazing. All in all, I would buy this again.
Perfect aquascaping rock By Liz on 10/28/2017Liz would recommend this product to a friend30lb ordered, 35lb received as a single 22"x13'x13" rock in perfect shape thanks to immaculate packing. The upgrade to 3-day shipping was inexpensive and the rocks shipped immediately so were actually received in 3 days. This is the perfect density & shape of rock for aquascaping.
Perfect aquascaping rock By Liz on 10/27/2017Liz would recommend this product to a friendOrdered 30lb and received one ~35lb large rock. This rock has the perfect shape and texture for aquascape, about 22x13x13, and was immaculately packed for shipping so no breakage during transit.
Best Rock There Is By Nokiaec11 on 10/25/2017Nokiaec11 would recommend this product to a friendReceived a huge odd shape piece just as requested...cured the rock in short time using a special process, not acid. 2nd huge piece ordered for me, happy both times.
Amazing By John on 10/6/2017John would recommend this product to a friendI ordered rock for my new 300gal tank and wanted some large base rock. The rock I received was impressive, to say the least. One piece measured over 20" across and has an amazing shape and so much character. It looks pretty clean for dry rock (I expected more dead organic material, but was pleasantly surprised). The rock also survived shipping very well with minimal damage. Would recommend!
Huge Rocks By Andrea on 6/25/2017Andrea would recommend this product to a friendLike others I ordered 30lbs and recieved one 42lb rock, it is massive! Just ordered 30 more lbs. the large chunks will help fill up my new 300gal :D
Hi, just want to make sure if I want two of these, I just add 60lbs to my cart, correct (or simply multiples of 30lbs for each I would like)?
I have a 150 gallon X-high tank. Dimensions are 24 depth x 48 width x 31 height. Approximately how many pounds should I order to fill this aquascape?
Is there any problem curing the rock in a new tank setup that has nothing it is as of yet? Should I just soak them first before they enter the tank?
Have a great day!
What are your recommendations on the curing process for this rock? Do you have any helpful links? Thanks

I just want 3 or 4 big pieces but don't know how many pounds that would be. if u could help I would greatly appreciate it.
You should expect a single 18" inch piece to be about 15-20lbs. If you are looking for a soccer ball sized piece you should account for about 10lbs and a softball piece to be about 3-4lbs. You can make those references for what size you are looking for in the order comments during checkout. :-)
