Gift giving and aquariums: Do you have aquarium items on your Christmas list?

As we come into the holiday season, many of us have started making our wish list of possible presents. While some share their Christmas lists widely so everyone know what items would be welcomed, others are far more guarded with their list. Of course, there are a few that may not participate and others that buy their own gifts (I mean, it certainly helps with getting the right size, color, and giga-whatevers, right?!?!). For most reef keepers, you probably have at least a few aquarium items on your list. Let us know if that is a reasonable assumption. Do you have aquarium items on your Christmas list? Feel free to share what those items are. Just because you may be getting coal in your stocking, doesn’t mean you won’t still be getting presents under the tree!

Wait, as an adults you guys get presents from family members? Ever since having kids my wife and I do not buy for each other for Christmas.
So I guess my official answer is I don’t have a Christmas list, but if I did it would definitely have aquarium stuff on it.

I'm hoping for socks!
Really, I always have meeting reef related on the list but not this year.
I need a new phone and a tablet... The tablet is for using the parwise and the phone for taking reefing pics. :)

Mine has been the same for like 4 years.

Now if I could just find someone to come and do all the extra maintenance I don't want to do like clean the radions and the return pump and such.

Well, I have spent far too much on reef related stuff already to want more for Christmas. At this point, I just hope my kids are happy with reagent boxes in their stockings and wrapped up salt buckets under the tree!

As someone else said, I don't like to ask or have a Christmas list. I just get what I want/need. I'm easy to shop for but not fun to shop for is what I'm told. Oh well...

Lots of folks got rid of their socks and are now sporting Diapers!


When you get old you switch your underware choices, often for Depends.

Every year aquarium stuff was the main items on my list. I can't believe it myself but I finally have everything I want for my aquarium and it's good just the way it is, ha ha!
