Live Rock - Brittle?

I just got my LR today... I'm going through it now and pieces are falling apart. Should it be doing that? It is Fiji rock.

Now I see there are hundreds of small pieces at the bottom of the box. This doesn't seem right!

Thanks.

There should not be too many peices of rubble. However, you can use this rubble rock in a sump or HOB filter for extra media. It is great stuff.

I called the shipper... they had me weight the rubble -- 13 lbs! Little 1-2" pieces. Very frustrating. I understand things happen in shipping, but the part that gets me is that it breaks off so easily. I had no idea it was that porous. They are sending me another box (half the size, which is fine) so I should end up with good pieces in the end. It's just going to take another week of "waiting"... the hard part
