Bonsai.....

I have a dried up bonsai plant that I'm pretty sure it should be dead. Can I add this to my aquarium? Any ideas on if it would be safe for shrimp?

depends on if it's a hardwood or softwood bonsai. a softwood version will leech chemicals into your water that are harmful to it's inhabitants.

It would probably rot in the tank.
