    Any feedback on this guys? I'm considering ordering 50-60lbs of reef saver rock for an aquascape overhaul.

    I'm preparing for a dwarf angel tank with maybe two large juvenile angels.

    I've ordered from them a bit and have never had a problem with an order. Always arrives well packaged and on time if not early!

    Excellent! This is my first go to online vendor for dry goods. Their videos are a great resource for setting up and running tanks.

    I ordered my dry rock and a bunch of equipment during the past 8 month. Never had an issue with packing or delivery time.

    Good to hear. I met them at MACNA and I agree their videos are great, but you never know what the buying experience can be in relation. Glad to hear such positive things. I'll definitely give them a shot.

    BRS is definitely top notch but their reef saver is pretty dense. I ordered it once out of curiosity and wouldn’t order it again. Pukani is worth the extra coin and I heard they should have it in stock again soon.

    I just ordered from BRS a Reef Octopus HOB, another GFO reactor and media and a few other assorted items. This will be for curing some new live rock I plan to play with later this summer.

    I've always been happy with my BRS orders.

    If you're looking for rock like that, go with marcorocks. Never had a problem with their rocks at all. Similar stuff but slightly cheaper. I also think they are more porous as well.
    BRS is 2.42/lb, 50lbs would come to $121. Marcorocks has 50lbs for $109 right now and they have other options for rock order so you can mix and match (shelf, ledge, prime, etc).

    BRS is phenomenal though, never had a problem with them fixing problems even if there was a bad shipment.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I was looking at the reef saver, because I've been told that it was easily stackable. I'm not the best at this rockwork thing and I need something that will help to lessen the difficulty

    The reef saver is very easy to work with. What I have seen is it greatly resembles the CaribSea Life Rock I have, but without the colors added. My issue with it is if you do anything other than a pile of rock, it's just does not look natural.

    I really like Pukani and what I have seen has been impressive, but does not seem to naturally stack well.

    I am not familiar with the Macrorocks but I have heard about them over the years and its all beeen good.
