Good morning,

Below is a photo of my cement Goldfish. It weighs 30 to 40 lbs. It was a lucky find at a cement statuary place. I think it has a lot of detail and I love it.
Hope you like the photo. Please add any of your own fish "whatnots" to this thread.

Ken

Thanks Lucy! The detail on the fish was just too great to pass it up. It's in my fish room in the floor. I think it deserves a pedestal before long

That's awesome, Ken! I'm a huge fan of statuary, whether indoors or outdoors. Mine are mostly gargoyles, though.

That is amazing! Glad you didn't paint it also.
1, 2. 3 terra Cotta candle/ incense holders. Never used them thought about putting them in a tank one day but havent yet.
4,5 saltwater fishes bought by my children when they were small. Wonder if they were hinting?

And last but not least both sides of my prized brass Cichlid. Can't even guess what it's kind it's supposed to be if it even represents a species but it has egg/eye spots so I know it's a cichlid this was a flea market find.

Hello Lori,

You have some beautiful pieces too. Love the blown glass fish. I have 9 of them I think and only bought 1 myself. I know some of them were thrift store finds too and I love'em. I'll post some photos of them next time I have the camera out.

Hope you're having a good weekend! HOT next 3 days. Temps to 99 and heat index from 101 today increasing to 115 by Tuesday!

Calgon take me away!

Ken

Would love to see your dolphins AquaGirl!

Love the wreath!!! And love the brass cichlid statue..... Wow!!! arty0024:

Maybe we can just include anything that swims in the sea..... naturally (no humans).

Merged posts.
Thanks!
Ken

You'd think I'd know better by now than to make two posts in a row..... :indifferent0028:
