Quick Overview

Tonga Jumbo 20"+ Shelf Rock has a minimum diameter at its longest point of 20" or larger.

Sold by the Pound - Minimum order 20 lbs

Unable to ship to Canada

Jumbo 30"+ shelf is, perfect for overhangs, caves and holding lots of corals in large tanks. Free of nuisance algae and pests. Shelf with base pieces is more three dimensional than the flatter plate pieces. For jumbo pieces, please specify your request in the comments area during checkout. We are unable to guarantee pieces with or without bases over 20 inches. Customer service will contact you for more details if required.

Rock Selection: Due to the wide variety of unique sizes and shape of this rock it is impossible to fulfill orders to exact dimensions but we are happy to make every attempt to get as close as possible if you leave notes on what you are looking for in the order comments section of the checkout.

Shipping Notes: Tonga Shelf can be fragile. BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Tonga Shelf.  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.

BRS recommends curing all rock before being used in an established system


Full Details

Like all of our dry rock Tonga Shelf is free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs and 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 Tonga Shelf 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" + Shelf Rock will have a diameter of at least 20" at its longest point.


Shipping: Tonga Shelf can be fragile. BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Tonga Shelf. 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.

  • Bra Tonga shelf 20+ By Myownlife on 10/20/2017

    When I purchased this I ask for a piece with a solid base as they ask you to do in the description if you are looking for a certain item. Well I got one with no base. So now I paid a premium price for a piece I am going to have to break and rebuild
  • very satisfied By Mr.Reef on 9/5/2017

    I put in memo that I had a large tank and please pick a real nice piece for me and at BRS they aim to please. Thank you, Mr. Reef
  • Awesome self rock By Ms81 on 7/6/2017

    I got exactly what I was looking for. I asked for one with a base and got just that. Looks very close to the one pictured. Will get all my rocks from here in the future. Just wow!!
  • Great Piece By Zelotes on 4/22/2017

    Got the 20" self along with a nice order of the pukani for my very first reef setup. I dont know much as most on here but I have to say I was impressed with this piece of rock. The rock was broken however about a 4-5 inch piece was broken off of the tip. I do believe it couldof been avoided if they didnt pack 30 pounds of pukani on top of it in same bag. If they woulf of placed the shelf in a seperate bag and sandwiched between the peanuts it would of stayed intact. Had to take a star off for that. Otherwise it would of been a hands down 5 star piece.
  • Great Shelf Rock! By Wade on 4/20/2017

    This is a great piece of shelf rock! I usually don't expect much as far as accuracy of this type of product for the price offered but was pleasantly surprised and was beyond expectations of the description!
  • Mostly what I was looking for... By Aaron on 11/24/2016

    I was concerned about what condition the rock would come in based on the lack of a shipping guarantee, but the shelf was well packaged and in great shape.

    The only reason I can't bring myself to give this 5 stars is due to asking for one with a base, but it did not come with one. I'm not sure if they just weren't able to, but I was kinda disappointed because now I have to figure out how I'm going to add one.

    In the end, I'd still recommend this rock, it will make a great shelf, and yes, it's definitely heavy, but big for its weight. I ordered a 20 lbs shelf for my 75 gallon and it's going to fit quite snug, but should work just fine.
  • Great for glueing corals to but needs to be c By Magictalk on 11/9/2016

    Great for glueing corals to but must be cured first.
    Too heavy for adding the hobby magnets BRS sales, really needs magnets like the Tunze rock which BRS does not sale.
