Not that I would put one in my tank, but I have not seen this expensive ship wreck. Anyone have a link? For $100 it must be fairly cool to look at.

Fake decorations will do nothing but collect algae. IMO, go with the natural look.

Yeah, I started with the fake coral. I still have a couple piece burried in my rock structure. After a short time all the vibrant color disappears and is just becomes part of the rock work.

I do like the port hole or debris idea. I have seen an anchor and it could look cool if you are set on something.

For a $100 you could get some nice rock or corals though.

I took a high resolution picture of my tank, put it in photoshop than copies a photo of the ship wreck I was looking at into it - to put it mildly it looked like crap in the photo so no doubt it would look like crap in real life.
Want a great read check out my debut novel Neptune's Garden: www.neptunesgardenbook.com

My buddy has a ship with bubbles in his 150 and you don't really notice it. In fact my husband had to tell me it was in there for me to see it. He really likes it, I just don't notice it with all the pretty LR and corals.
