ha ha I think I'll avoid the hard ways but I will definitely do the tests and if things seem to wacky I'll just abandon the idea, Id rather not play to much with little fish lives at stake. Maybe I could just artfully place them around the aquarium...or tape them to the aquarium to give the illusion of their presence in the water..... j/k but I will experiment with my favs.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Keep in mind that the reason that these materials raise your pH and hardness is due to their calcium content, which means that they're actually dissolving in your water. Even if the water chemistry effects weren't of any concern, I'm not sure I'd want my precious collected fossils dissolving in my fish tank. Just a thought. Also, I'd be worried about shark teeth performing their, uh, intended purpose in my fish tank.
