Default Bones

Hi all, would like to ask if anyone uses bones as deco in their tank? As in any kind of large bones, skulls etc. Got the "graveyard" feel hehe. Anyone can share how the bones are prepared? Is it okay to wash and sun-dry? Thanks!

Never thought of that kind of decor before, but personally, I wouldn't even consider it. It's kind of morbid. Keeping fish, to me, is therapeutic. Adding skulls and bones into the decor just simply goes against that philosophy.

Why not go for a 'shipwreck' feel instead? Like Titanic.

I did consider a Lego cityscape once though. To keep Figure 8 puffers, as they like to explore. But then fear of them gnawing on the plastic Lego bricks put paid to that idea.

Haha Jon-san, I also once considered something similar. Those affix model fighter aircraft, figured they would look great in the lobster tank with them crawling about. But then I remembered the glue I used in the models...
