Default Ornament shopping....

Been checking out various decorations. *LoL* Pretty entertaining looking at all these decorations. I don't want to make my tank cheesy but there were some of the ornaments I like. I might get one or two ornaments for the tank.

My favorites:
-A couple tree stumps I looked at that had faces on them. Reminded me of something you'd see in a Jim Henson movie.
-A crocodile skull with the mouth open.
-Ancient style columnes of various origins

It is fun shopping for the fish! I tend to use rocks and wood that I just pick up...It's cheap and it looks natural.

I have a 12 inch crock skull in my cichlid tank. It nearly dissapears into the limestone so it takes some people a few minutes to notice it. The fish love it too

I once saw a 55 gallon tank with a very realistic plastic "Halloween" skeleton laying on the bottom. This thing was eerie as it was so real looking. It was about 4 feet long resembling the remaims of a child.

lol ferret, twisted indeed

I think the idea could look very classy, ive seen some tanks with this kind of theme that can look very tacky if not done properly
