Can you put sea shells in a tropical fish tank?
If the sea shells have been thoroughly cleaned by being left in boiling water for at least five minutes, then they should be sterile. Sea shells are safe for aquariums but if you have any fish that are extremely sensitive to pH levels, you may want to reconsider. The shells will release trace amounts of calcium carbonate into the water that will possibly raise the pH. For the most part, it is perfectly safe. I have several in my 55 gallon and have never had any trouble.
