Ah.. the pico Buddha was a nice touch to the tank.

Is there one added to the winner’s bundle?
Yes, but I have seen so much fun grief given here in the past about using ornamentals! It's like it is an unspoken rule that a genuine reefer only uses real ocean material. :)

I have a different Buddha in my pico, they're a good fit. It's okay if they say I'm not genuine because of it ;)

Which is funny since probably 50% or more of the "live rock" in our tanks is man made from rubble and sand.

I think the idea is it is supposed to look like the ocean. Probably the majority are not using rock actually from the ocean.
