I’ve got 3 brain coral fossils and wonder if they’d be safe to put in my upcoming tank. What do people reckon?
Also do you reckon coral would attach to them if they can go in?

I also have two very large sea shells from the Bahamas. Wondering if it’s possible to use one of those to aqua scape also?

Might look a bit odd, as they'll end up covered in coraline algae. Why not real ones?

Ah fair point about the algae.
I will be having real corals. I just had these and thought they may look nice as additional decoration particularly early on but I foolishly hadn’t thought about the algae
