I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy used Pukani (or dry Pukani that was imported before the ban)? I'd rather clean it off, cure it and dry it myself than go with reefsaver or something similar. I'd at least like a bit of Pukani to work with. Maybe end up with a mixed tank of reefsaver and reclaimed Pukani. I've read about people getting it on eBay but I haven't seen anything for sale. Is there anywhere people have found it?

I have about 150lbs of pukani from my tank I just broke down . Will be keeping some for a future tank , but possibly would consider selling some .

I had a big problem with leeching of phosphate with pukani rocks. I even cured the rocks for 8 weeks and it was still leeching phosphate. Be careful with that

Is that a typical problem? I too am thinking about using pukani rock, as it seems lighter and more porous than varieties made from Aragonite. Also, what was your phosphate levels at their highest, during this time? And can you attribute any deaths to the issue?
