Dead coral skeleton from ocean

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone

 

I went to beach today and found couple of interesting things. First is a dead skeleton of coral. I was wondering if i could use it in my  tank? 

 

Other thing was bunch of flat ocean rocks. I want to make something out of them in my tank, like little decoration. 

 

And i read somewhere that sometimes coral skeleton might have some parts of coral left it and it might grow again?

Leather corals will grow again if even a tiny bit is left alive on it...but if you found it on a beach..I don't think so. Whatever you find in the wild like that, I would boil it to make sure it was good and dead of any parasites or bad critters....it will seed again from your tank and be like live rock.
