Can one put coral from the ocean into a freshwater tank?
Can one put coral from the ocean into a freshwater tank? The dentist I'm setting up the tank for would like to put some that she has, in there, but I don't know if that would be okay. I'm thinking not.
I think so too
real or fake
real would die I would imagine
fake would rip fins and might mess with the PH
its real, but its dead I assume because it has been a decorative thing on a shelf for years.
just to be safe I wouldn't put coral in a fresh water tank
It will raise the pH and probably harden the water. If I were you I'd be wary of using it.
It would be dangerous for your angels and long finned fish and any others fish that are sensitive to water parameter changes at any rate. Emma, I would have to vote with the rest and say no.
I would say no also but I saw some awesome looking fake at petsmart if she insists. Not sure how natural it would look with the live plants and wood though.
Okay I'm kind of glad everyone is saying no, because I don't think coral would look very good in a fresh tank.
so now we can get some lovely wood!
I got 3 pieces of driftwood and there was a world of difference in the quality and not a whole lot of difference in the price. the very BEST quality driftwood I got was at a place called . It holds together much better and looks so much nicer and they have such a much finer and larger choice of shapes and sizes available. I found the site on the Plantgeeks site.
