Castles, columns, and other kitch

A while ago, I read a photo report from someone who went to China and visited a bunch of aquarium markets. What impressed me most were pictures of stores that had just 100s and 1000s of little ceramic temples, castles, and all those kinds of things, we'd never admit we put them in our tanks.

Well, I was thinking of doing a little sunken city themed tank (in the basement where no one sees it). Can you point me to your favorite pieces of decoration? I'm interested in seeing the pieces and also URLs for vendors.

No divers, Disney stuff, etc. please!

I've been wanting to do like a Greek column theme. Sort of an "atlantis" feel too it. Get a few of these...let some moss and algae grow on it, have a few leaning or on their sides.

I know it's cheesy, but I think if it was set up right with the right flora and fauna it could be kinda neat.

These are great prices, Daximus, thanks for the links.

I'd probably go with something Victorian, Egyptian or Greek. Although, I've discovered a TARDIS ornament... if only I were in the UK.
