Like all of our dry rock Tonga Branch is free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs and is guaranteed to be free of aiptasia, 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 Tonga Branch Dry Live Rock, we suggest 1 pound 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.
Picking: When ordering rock any notes for size, shape, or concerns can be left in the "Order Comments" field during check-out step #3. Our picking department will do the best to follow the notes on the order.
Shipping: Tonga Branch can be fragile. BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Tonga Branch. However, we have no control how UPS handles it and it may break during shipping. Unfortunately, this is not covered by insurance so we are unable to replace broken pieces.
Note: Dry live rock is not available for shipment to Canada due to high tariffs. Please consider Reef Saver rock as this is not subject to these fees and our favorite of the dry rocks available.
Broke in transit By Dodgersfan on 10/16/2017Dodgersfan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFirst the good: BRS called me and talked through what i was wanting to make sure they got the right pieces for me, which i appreciated. now the bad news: they told me they were sending 2 pieces (what i asked for) but when i opened the box there was 5 fragments that looked more like the complex single branch pictures. i didn't think they even went together at first, but after a little bit figured out how to put them back together. this stuff is really dense, so you don't get a lot of rock for the weight, 100 bucks got me 2 branches, i had to buy more weight because they didn't have 2 pieces that added up to 15lbs. biggest disappointment was the breakage, i feel that BRS could've done a better job packaging, it was real lightweight. you can read a full review with pictures here: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/review-of-brs-complex-multi-branching-dry-rock.330499/
Exceeds expectations By Blaine W on 7/5/2017Blaine W would recommend this product to a friendI'd purchased 60lb of branch and shelf rock for my 125 and was very pleased with what I received, but needed needed a bit more to fill in the tank. So I put in an order for 20 more pounds of branch rock and requested one or two large branchy pieces to fit in an 18x72 tank and please no stumpy pieces. What I received was on point and better than what I expected. I am more than satisfied with this product.
