Default Anyone might use these ornament for FOWLR tank?

I came across one of my friend's back yard and saw him got quite a large amount of these "Tank Ornament". I found out my friends family used to own a factory in HK before they immagrate over to Canada that makes these ornaments and are fish safe. I offered him to help him see if anyone in the community might actually use these in their FOwLR tank( i don't think any one would use it in their reef tank but who knows). I would also like to see if anyone can give me some price check also since most of the ornaments are a lot smaller than these one my friend has. Most of them being sold are around 4-8inches and largest I came across was about 12inches.

Here are some picture. This is the largest piece I currently have and it is 19 inches tall, 14 inches wide and about 9 inches deapth.


some other pieces here






This is what it looks like inside


Thanks for your help ahead of the time =)

Those would look sweet in a large FOWLR!! I would put them in mine for sure, it would add some more color.

Really hard to say because like sou say they are very pricey in LFS but I would say anywhere for $20 for the smaller pieces to $100 for the largest piece you have in the pics.

As for pricing I'm not sure, but I will say they are very nicely done. Most look really really fake but yours are more realistic looking, I would use them in a fowlr.

perhaps googling the company name etched on each peice might help you find the retail cost of your peices. Then cut that in half...

Yup I'd use those in a fowlr as well, very nice the ones made by "living color" are so fake looking and tacky IMO. These are nicely done, I love the piece with the maze on it



Edit- I'll be kicking myself if they are living color lol
