George the turtle welcomes his new home decor in June 2019.
He shares his tank with a number of small fish and other aquatic life.
By February 2020, the porcelain seasponge has taken on a life of its own, becoming a functioning part of George's tank ecology. It provides habitat for the small fish to hide and breed, and a surface for plant life to attach to, as well as furniture for George.
