gourd shell in tank?

I have seen coconut hulls used in aquariums and I was wondering if I could use gourd hulls (grown in my garden with no pesticides)? Any thoughts would be appreciated!!

Thanks!

I have gourds in my garden also! I'm afraid they would rot after thye soaked in the aquarium for awhile.
Coconut shells are more woody than gourd shells also.

I agree with Butterfly. I don't think I've ever seen a rotten coconut shell, but I've seen dozens of rotten gourds.

You could soak one in epoxy, however, and it would probably work well.
