The stone uguay grow so slow that it is uncertain when the hatchlings reach adulthood. Many of their owners see them fit as pond ornaments, their moss-covered shells blending in nicely with the scenery of both natural and artificial ponds. Some hold out hope and place the stone uguay inside the water, wishing for fish to finally become attached to these creations now that they appear to be fully grown. No one has seen something like that happen, though, and many blame it on the stone uguay themselves as they tend to disappear from their set locations overnight and reappear in the strangest of places. Sometimes it can be a funny situation, finding the uguay stuck on its shell on top of a bookshelf, while on other occasions, less amusing, they can be found at the bottom of a filled bathtub, staring lifelessly at their owners. Whichever the case, they are usually taken back to the ponds. Students who specialize in plant magic sometimes take stone uguay as companions, taking different approaches in growing something more than moss on their shells but so far the most anyone has ever managed to achieve was to slightly change the leaves' coloration.

Legend has it that long ago the artificers wanted to copy the benefits of having uguay as companions without going through the trouble of befriending the real creatures. They tried using different materials and fabrics in creating them and after many failed attempts they settled on one stone in particular. Mined from the mountains of Me'chuan, the obsidian found there proved to be the most effective in growing some sort of plant life if enchanted with enough life magic. In their zealous attempts to make these uguay better than their live counterparts, the artificers were too late to realize their magic did not stick to their creations as intended, and everything they imbued the stone bodies with animated them instead of causing plants to grow on the shells. Therefore, no fish were attracted to them when submerged and the artificers deemed the project a failure. Nowadays, the stone uguay can be found in artificer-run stores, trinkets sold for cheap prices.
