Antique wall clock? I'm still not picturing that. I think we need a wider angle shot.

Even with a brand spanking new tank, you already have a coral in it. You need help. (My guess is it's a species of Turbinaria... medium to high flow, medium to high lighting - pretty non demanding.)

I think they are the bottom of the chains that holds the weights (makes it easier to pull) that makes the clock "tick"....I agree show us the clock!!! Remember, we require pics!

I was thinking that too, but wouldn't they be at different levels? Unless at their extremes they go way below the light fixture.

(Sheesh... I gotta get a life.)

Ah HA!!! They are strickly decorative......and the clock still works. It's been in our family for over 125 yrs. And when I get home I'll bore you both with pics of it.

Oh, Scott...as for my comment about being observant and young children.....being observant is a necessary survival skill......just ask Kurt!

Sorry to distract you from the clock discussion, but I think it's either a monti cap or an oxypora sp.

I would say that it is a Monti cap rather then the chalice. I don't see any mouths on it. But sometimes pics can be deceiving.
