Boutique Seiryu consists of the cream of the crop pieces, a combination of the best stones featuring the most details and desirable characteristics. We've picked through our entire pile of Seiryu and put aside the best pieces to make up the Boutique Seiryu
Seiryu is the Godfather of all stones. The pinnacle of aquascaping rock. Undoubtedly one of the most popular hardscape materials available. The craggy texture and endless details in these stones allow anyone to easily create a natural looking aquascape.
Seiryu may slightly raise pH and water hardness. Controsoil can help balance that out.
Pieces from packages will range from 3-12 inches. If you have any special requests for sizes, please make a note when ordering and we will try to accommodate according to inventory.
2lbs is roughly one or two stones that range from 3-4 inches each
*Stones require rinsing prior to use

I feel it may have been a good idea to tape the edges of the box. I’m unable to tell due to not having a scale for for rocks, but I believe I may have lost some of the stone in transit through a large opening between the sides of the box. They just used a couple rubber bands to keep the box together. Didn’t work that well. Other than that the stones are fine.
Received my 10lb order today of Boutique Seiryu Stone, packaging was pretty dinged up but I expected as much when shipping a box of rocks...
I spoke with customer service for a few days prior to ordering about what sort of details I was looking and what size and shapes of Seiryu Stone I needed for my aquascapes. I even sent photographs of the 3 aquascapes that I was looking to improve by adding additional stones, along with information about what I wanted to change in my tanks. I honestly love the staff and support at BUCEPLANT.com, I speak with them quite often about insight on plants and products before I order and any advice on type of growth or style. I can’t say enough about this company and the way they run their business, the quality of the products and service is phenomenal!
When I received the stones today they arrived very dusty and didn’t have much color contrast to them but I could immediately tell that they had great detail in the crevices and shapes, which is the main difference between the “Boutique Seiryu Stone” and others like “Black Mountain Seiryu Stone”. The fact that they were very bland in color out of the box didn’t bother me because I already had the intention of preforming a “Muriatic Acid Treatment”, which darkens the stones to near black while leaving the white cleaning and improving the brightness of the white stripes/lines. The photos attached are of after I treated the stones.
Thanks everyone at BUCEPLANT expecially the customer support members Kenny & Chris which have both been amazing help on more than one occasion!
(I’d like to add that treating your Seiryu Stone with muriatic acid is a great way to improve the dynamic and contrast of them... BUT IT IS VERY DANGEROUS AND IS NOT RECOMMENDED, you can easily cause permanent physical damage do not do this yourself!)
I had submitted a picture to Buce Plant indicating what style and hard-scape I was desiring.
Upon receiving the stone order 4 out of the 5 pieces were a close match to what I wanted!
I couldn't be happier!
Great job to Buce Plant for selecting the right pieces!
I ordered 30lb of rocks and requested one xl rock(9-12in) but didn't receive it in the package. I emailed them about it and they sent me an extra one at the size I requested. Thanks team buce!
I ordered 10 lbs. of Boutique Seiryu Stone and requested smaller pieces to use as edging for a riverbank in my upcoming 40 gallon aquascape. I love all of the stone pieces I received, but the larger pieces definitely had the most character. Eager to add this to my new tank soon. If I order again, I'll probably request medium/large pieces to use as an aquarium centerpiece.
