Has anyone tried using old bones in an aquascape? I have access to some old cow bones; femurs, jawbones, spine, and some cool looking bits of pelvis. These bones are years old and very weathered. Would they leach to many minerals or would they work in a planted fish tank? Anyone? Old bones?
idk, it sounds pretty cool. what about a few ribs or something? Try boiling them in water for 20 minutes, and then put them in the tank. Keep an eye on them for a few weeks, and if they get any fungi or algae or anything, take 'em out. It's definitely worth a try though.
Nothing macabre! More of a Nebraska version of Texas holey rock. Where chips expose some of the soft center, a place for a stem. Holes and bridges for the fish to swim through. They would really and texture. I've alomst got myself talked out of the red oak that I was going to use on my next setup. Oh my!
