    Do any of the sponsors in Gauteng stock Real Reef rock and have stock at the moment? I need 10k urgently. Thanks

    Do you mind posting a picture of your rock when you got it?

    That looks awesome but the ones that I received are so small and it looks like they are broken pieces. They aren't completely covered.

    Dre I was under the impression we had sorted this out with you....
    since you want to revoice your opinion publically allow me to repeat myself ....you requested small dry pieces as you said your tank was only 600mm long...we sent you small dry pieces....as I already explained to you the rocks are not broken but classed as small as imported from Real Reef..When you voiced your displeasure at the size once you received we offered to refund you which you accepted....When you asked why it is not so colourful I explained that the colour comes out when the rock is wet, yours is dry as you requested... I don't see the need to rehash on this forum what you already know

    Agree with what flappy said with regards to the sizes and colours.

    I asked for small pieces and I got them, they scaped really well.
    The colour got better when it was in the tank for a day or two.
    The white parts is almost covered with growth again.

    This is a forum where we can get information and I have posted this to get more information on the product. I am not unhappy with the service I received from urban marine at all. If I was I would have said so. I just expected rocks a bit bigger that would be easier for a new reefer like me to aquascape. OK well I'm going to try and aquascape this and make it work. What can I use to glue the rocks together because ill create large structures before they go into the tank and then just place them in.

    Pratley putty or Aquamend works great. I know some people drill holes in the rock first and then use plastic tubing to stack it.
