Like an outdoor toilet in your reef tank featured

Comments In terms of how it looks, this is one of the better fake decorations. So if you like fake decorations you would probably be interested in this one. However, I can't recommend it because it collects detritus. Each little barnacle is basically a little toilet for hermit crabs or a place for uneaten food to collect. This adds nitrates to the water which causes quality issues with the tank and can endanger livestock.

A friend of mine who I help out with his tanks, had a water quality issue that I just couldn't figure out. I did everything that I could think of and nothing worked. I finally decided to replace the gravel in the tank, because sometimes that turns out to the be the problem. To begin the process I reached in and grabbed his fake barnacles (a little different than the ones pictured) and the minute they hit the surface of the water I knew they were the problem because they smelled rotten. I had a similar experience with my freshwater tanks and a fake log which I shared with my friend and he decided to just ditch the thing.

I simply can't recommend fake decorations. As a general rule I say try and find something real to put in the tank.


Liked about it 1. Attractive sculpting that looks real.


Didn't like 1. Collects uneaten food and detritus which rot and cause nitrate levels to rise.

As Good As The Real Thing!

General This is the only artificial coral I would put in my tank. For me its the only one that doesnt look artificial. The shape the color the sizing everything is right on traget. Ive had mine for a cpl of yrs now and my starry blennie loves it actually its her home. If you want to add a artificial coral to your tank that looks as good as the real thing this is the coral for you.


Liked about it Very realistic!


Didn't like nothing
