So this could be a potentially awkward topic but does anyone know how bones hold up underwater? I suppose I should clarify and say animal bones. I have a couple skulls and a spine that would look neat in a tank.
I'm just curious if they would break down or affect the water quality in any way.
it would def leach calcium and any other minerals it contained. it would decompose pretty quickly too (compared to, say a seashell containing calcium). it would probably cloud the water too. if the bones mean anything to you (a pet?) i wouldnt put them in there. they would be lost forever. put them on a shelf or some where to be appreciated.
It's be a simple freshwater tank with small fish. The bones themselves are just bones that I've found over the years on open land, all cleaned by nature. I'm fairly certain they're deer bones but it doesn't matter I guess.
