What are you getting your fish for Christmas?

What the subject says- what are you getting your fish for Christmas?
I asked myself that last week, then I asked my sister. My sister told me that fish don't celebrate Christmas.

Regardless, I want to get my fishes something, but I can't think of anything. The most I can think of is a new tank mate- a Montezuma Swordtail.

Not getting them anything this year . I was going to get them some new food but I already feed them brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, bloodworms, beefheart, and emerald entree so they're already spoiled enough lol. They are getting new tankmates as a new year present though.

Mine a getting a hospital tank, a heater, new substrate, new real plants. Thinking a crypt in the middle with an aponegeton in each corner (10g). My first two fish ever (my mollies) are moving from my first tank ever to my 55g. I will also be getting 3 dwarf fire-eyed loaches, 4 cory cats, and either a baby betta or an elephant eared betta. Might get a baby so i can condition it to living with my shrimp. So excited.

My mom got me a new filter to replace my current filter that I had just bought in November. However it was VERY noisy. The tank is a 29 gallon and the new filter she picked up was rated for up to 30 gallons. I installed the new filter today, but found out it leaked!! so I returned it and bought myself a new filter.

I wouldn't get a baby betta fish because they need extremely clean water. A lot of bettas will live with shrimp. Raising it yourself won't make much of a difference.

Thank you so much bettafanatic! That was my main worry as I love my shrimp and didn't want my very small colony to get wiped out. Now I can get one with some awesome coloring

Be careful with the hornwort. It will grow and take over your entire tank very quickly. I started with 3 small bunches and every week I was throwing handfuls out. I finally got rid of all of it because it just took over.

I get my drift wood at my lfs. It's not unheard of for big stores like petsmart to also carry drift wood. I haven't tried ordering any online but I remember reading about some members ordering it, so it is possible. Hopefully someone that has ordered it will chime in
