Default Silly project, anyone want to participate?

I have this Alien going in my tank right now with green lepto growing all over it.

Yeah, I know, itís a little stupid. But I like things that are stupid sometimes.

This is 6 months growth, so itís not going to be fast.....








So I had this thought...........

A couple years ago I got these skulls.





I think I have 8 of them. And I thought these would be so cool covered with crazy spreading lps corals, like cyphastrea or montipora, or some other weird thing.

So hereís the deal. If you have a coral that you might like to see all over one of these, bring it to me.
I will split it, putting half on one of two skulls. Let them settle in and get established, and give you one back. I keep the other half.

Deal?

Fine print:
Nothing with Monti eating nudibranch. I have a qt, but having spent six months getting them out of my system, donít want to do that again.
I will do my best to keep the frag alive before I apply it to the skull, but if itís marginal, or your only favourite, unreplacable frag, then maybe not.
But if youíre willing to try, then letís do it!
I will do my best to keep the frag alive after I apply it to the skull, but there are no guarantees.......K?

Default skull game

hey Cheryl what a smoking idea ... years ago I always wanted a human skull in my rockwork but where do I get a skull , maybe that guy who was burying the human bodies in leaside , just kidding ... I cant find the pic I had on my phone but it was a full body skeleton laying on its back drapped over rockwork , how wicked that looked ,but I didn't have a six foot tank to try it on .
cant wait to see the photos of the progression

Ok, I know this isnít for everyone, but seriously, nobody wants a reverse forest fire monti covered skull in their fish tank?
Or a John deer leptospirosis skull?
Fine, be boring...........

Haha! Thought about something like that. It would be a chia pet. Except all the details would be lost.

Iím doing 4 different porites. Think those will keep the details.

7 of 8 skulls are now growing. I will update in a year. It will probably take that long......
