Default decorations

i was thinkig abotu getting some ornaments for my tank now that i think i have cleared up my alfea bloom and was wondering if any body had any ideas. my dad work on an oil rig or drilling platform and i have been looking round to see if i could maybe find d diecast model of a rig which i think would look good so if any body knows were i could get one please let me know.

other than this i really have no idea wat to do in the tank id like to have something eye catching a cool looking but the only thing they sell in my LFS is (for want of a better word) cheap tatt which looks a bit tacky and plastic.

any ideas would be great.

thanx eddie

I havent seen any oil rig ornaments... you could do a keyword search on google shopping if you would really like to try to find one.

I would also suggest browsing through the phot galleries here... you can get a lot of ideas. I believe it was Pwat who used Legos to create some unique & cute decorations for her tank...

ive tried looking on ebay and a few sites online but with no success so ile give google shopping a try.

as for finding stuff around my local area im from liverpool in the uk so i dont really get an cool looking drift wood or rocks washing up on the beach, i have however been thinking about terracotta plant pots for some hiding places and thought this would look cool.
