*** got a couple deer antlers with skulls that *** gotten over the years and think it would look really neat to have one or 2 in my tank. from what i know they are almost completely calcium (*** read calcium is a ph buffer?) . anyone out there with more advice on if its a good idea or not? afraid of anything leeching from the antler/skulls into the tank or them decinegrating in the tank and becoming mush or falling apart?

what do you guys think?

they grow algae like nothing else on the planet because of all the nutrients in the bone, but other than a healthy crop of algae all over the tank, the antlers and skulls should be fine. As you can imagine, I pulled mine out of the one tank I tried it in... I got tired of scraping glass! :lol:
