Thank you to my Secret Santa for the filtration media, fish food, stock market trading notebook, and awesome t-shirt! It made my entire day!
Also for the $10 BRS code!

Part 2 from my secret Santa arrived today, a very nice beer glass for my husband with an extremely heavy duty bottle opener. Thanks again Santa! Matt says "fish people are weird, I like getting gifts from people in your hobbies, I'm clearly more important" hahaha :cool:

Glad he doesn't realize we are trying to butter him up for you so you can get away with that next tank upgrade :cool:

My secret Santa is awesome! Thank you! The frag rack is exactly what I needed! The little extra care you took to look through my threads was a nice touch too

thanks again and happy holidays!

Wow and wow!! Another SS gift appeared today. I was surprised and I am truly grateful for my very generous SS! I love this frag rack. I got one last year from my SS and it is my favorite but I find that if I buy lots of corals, they don't all fit as you have to leave space between some corals, so having 2 now will be just perfect! I love the magnet mounts, keeping the frags off the sand yet all the way down for light acclimation . And I can raise it up slowly. And with my short arms (5' tall and 25" deep), I can lower it and raise it up! Just perfect

Thank you SS. You made my day today.

here are a couple shots with the Orphex camera lens I received which I absolutely love. and I will be getting new corals later this month so the glue is much needed.

Santa came!!!!
Excited Snow GIF


I got a sweet coffee mug (favorite company to order from :) )which I'm already using and 10 lbs of great looking rock. I love all the holes and coolness of the pieces that I got.

I plan on adding that to my current tank to seed nicely for my future 75g build. So excited!

Thank you so much Santa!

can’t wait to get this upgraded heater in the tank about time to retire a 2 year old ehime.
also the Icp test will come in handy.
be nice to see where things are at.

Just got a notice from elfster that my SS was late getting their gift out to me, but it's on it's way now!!

Now for my recipient, according to amazon the package was left at their door last week some time, but no thank you on here or elfster? I did screw up and one package was sent to me, for which I need to repackage and send out.

Maybe my gift giving ideas suck(I definitely spend over the minimum)? But I have never gotten a thank you three years in a row! Almost makes me not want to take part again next year. Heck last year I had to actually PM my recipient just to make sure they got my gift(it was not cheap!)

I don't mind giving, specially to like minded people(reefers)but a small thank you goes a long way.

This is exactly why they made it mandatory to thank your Secret Santa. Im in the same boat as you. My gift got delivered last week with no response too. Some people do wait till Christmas to open, I do sometimes, so that may be the reason but I still post saying I got a mystery box.
