Some friends got back from Mozambique last week and brought me sum kick ass shells....but they were rubbed down with coconut butter...or is it oil? Anyhoo...is it safe to put them into my aquarium? Would crap myself if the snails that came outa these shells chased me, The shells are almost the size of my PC monitor.

i wouldnt add them unless they are broken along the twirl, as they will cause dead spots and pollute the water, as for the oil, cant see it being good

I would not use the shells.

Why not rather get one of those nice little ship wrecks, or a treasure chest that releases bubbles. ;) :whistling: :nono:

Sorry could not help the sarcasm. :lol: I just can't picture a tank with large shells, they should be in the same category as the above.

To be honest bud even if you put them in without a problem they'd just get covered in algae/coralline and eventually look nasty ;)

Wetty that sounds like a horrid idea. Hill has the right idea, i'm just too diplomatic to say it.

if you did add them they would only be asthetic value (if you into plastic roses and fake decor) and end up trapping detritus causing water quality issues.

best left where they were found i recon
