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.
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.
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 Notes: Tonga Branch can be fragile. BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Tonga Branch. 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: 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.
Love It By Edward on 11/19/2017Edward would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great product at a great price. I bought 10lbs just to get an idea of what I was buying and I was very impressed. Also BRS sent me more than the 10lbs I paid for. BRS is a great place to do business with. Thank You BRS for all you do!!!

Exceeds Expectations! By Mike on 2/28/2017Mike would recommend this product to a friendMy BRS Tonga Single Branch Dry Live Rock arrived just today and I must say when I opened the box I was very pleasantly surprised. This rock was all the length that I requested, averaged 2.5"-3.5" in diameter, and was absolutely stunning. I can not wait to incorporate it in my new 165g build! Thank you BRS!
Great Stuff By Scott S. on 8/16/2016Scott S. wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered this for a small tank I am putting up in my office and didn't want the usual and for the price I didn't go wrong. Will be placing another order soon for a bigger tank.
Very nice By Justyn on 11/19/2014Justyn would recommend this product to a friendI ordered 20 pounds and they sent me about 24.5 pounds. I had asked for the most twisted, curved, thick pices they could pack and that's what I got. This is for my next build, which will take about a year to accumulate all the nessisery equipment. Thank you BRS
Depends on What You Want By Terri on 11/18/2014Terri wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe BRS guys gave me what I wanted so it worked for me:0) The pieces are heavy and about 3 inches round. I wanted short lengths so I don't know what might be the average length. I used mine for a campfire-type structure, mounting mushrooms, Rics and Yumas.
3.5 stars By AdamSabina on 9/25/2014AdamSabina wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSome of the branches wet short like 3-4" which doesn't help aquascaping. But some were ok 12"+. They were mostly single branches if that's what you want your golden. If not I really want to try the tonga shelf rock I've seen some cool stuff with it. But great bang for the $.
Great product By Jonathan on 9/1/2014Jonathan would recommend this product to a friendThis branching rock makes a good candidate for a great aqua scape. It is a bit heavy but you get a good quantity for the price per pound.

I've heard Tonga branch dosent support bio filtration like other more porous rock. Is this true?
While tonga branch will have less internal surface area than most other rock types, anything with surface area will provide a place for bacteria to grow on. Even the sides of the aquarium will generally harbor a significant amount of bacteria. With that said, you will generally need more tonga branch rock than other types to achieve a specific amount of biological filtration.
Have a great day!
Is there a somewhat average size to these? (length, height)
As these rocks are a natural product harvested from the ocean, the size and shape of the rocks will range extensively and each piece is different.
Have a great day!
