Get one of those remote controlled shark balloons and put your face on the front of it. Go into attack mode.

Such a great time when the big kids get to open their presents !!!! ..... The only downside to that is that we gotta buy our own!

That's absurd!! And I'd need 2. I mean, great product...def the best out there, but c'mon!! At half the price, still pretty ridiculous mind you, they would appeal to 10x the market they do now.
With 2 kids under 10, there no way I could justify this, being a blue- collar guy.

Oh i agree that its a pricey little item. I remember seeing them a couple of years ago at a lfs and i couldnt imagine ever paying that much for a powerhead...,Imo most of the expense is in the "driver" a multi mode exotic wave maker of sorts.... 24 hours ago i was really questioning my sanity regarding getting one of these.., but now that I've had a chance to figure out just how to program it ., im loving it!!! Is it worth the $$$ ??? Who knows??? Will i get another one for the other side of my tank ?? Don't know yet....But it's awfully neat !

Not a problem at all. LOL. And yes our presents are much more expensive but in this case I got a steal. As part of the group buy we got dimmable units down to $235 each but since I put the buy together he gave me a break and I got three for $118 each. . Thought I had a full tank shot on my phone and was going to post it but it will have to wait until I get home (at DDS with my daughter getting her Learners Permit)
