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. Please note that all Large 20" + Branch Rock will have a measurement of at least 20" at its longest point.
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.
THANK YOU TYLER By jtietz on 8/8/2017jtietz would recommend this product to a friendThank you Tyler,
I just had the most amazing experience with BRS. I went to every LFS trying to locate a piece of tonga for my Nuvo 25 lagoon with no luck. I called BRS not knowing how much to order and when i called a tech named Tyler answered. Not only did he answer every question i had but he hand picked a single 18lb piece of complex tonga just for my aquarium. The best customer service... Thank you BRS
Stumps By joe on 4/25/2017joe wouldn't recommend this product to a friendOrdered 20 lbs, received two stump like pieces. One was like a solid mass barely any branching. The other one was just a large diameter log. Nothing like the pictures.
