|DiscusIt'sWhats4DinneR||bones will be fine in the tank. i would boil them before adding though to kill any nasties or clean off any junk that may be left behind.|

|MedRed||that would be awesome for a piranha tank... a rib cage and a skull... lol|

I'm curious to see how this would work, too!
Had an idea involving elk antler a while ago, but I'm not certain how well the antler would hold up - they break down pretty fast outside. ^^

You could add some red food coloring in the water too.

|Farmboy||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!|

yikes, what kind of decor are you going for?
It would be funny to have bones & skulls with piranhas .
make sure to boil the bones.. These are lots of organic matter inside the bone, i.e. marrow. But I personally would go for fake bones.

This, sort of the reverse effect of adding drift woods to a tank.

|brion0||Just a guess, but id say bones would have the same effect as shells. Since bones arent as hard as shells, may leach more. You realy are a farmboy.|

|demosthenes||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.|

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?
