There we go! Maybe you can recruit some of your micro beer swapping buddy's too.. And there is also some of our sponsors that maybe haven't chimed in just yet. What about Mr. @DaveFason I sure he is super busy with all the nanobox Christmas order but maybe he will get in. And @StevieT I am sure people would want some sweet intank swag complete with chinball clownfish or even those delish swedish fish.. what about our fearless leader CM is he not allowed in the "unofficial" gift exchange..

 

Ok ok I'm done back to beer and football CHEERS REEFERS!

Open your present with caution and prepare for the worst. These guys are as cruel as they come. 😉

This thread got crazy. :lol:

 

Wish list:

Very small wall mounted magnetic frag racks, keep in mind my tank is 14gal and 2.7 gal.

reef/ocean themed art...or hedgehog themed art. I also collect little bitty turtle figurines.

a ginormous wad of dragon's breath macro (the orange tips kind) that I will hopefully not kill again.

frags...I like blastos, rics, zoas, mushrooms, gorgs, macros, leathers (green sinularia/nepthea a plus). I tend to kill fuzzy sticks.

coral glue because we all know I let frags sit in the sandbed for months.

test kits for phos/alk/cal/mag because I may surprise myself by actually testing one of these days lol.

fleece tunnel for Violet's cage, she is becoming quite the tunnel connoisseur! She also likes live mealworms.

gift cards for Petco, LiveAquaria, BRS, DFS, AlgaeBarn.

pods, Merlin likes to eat them. Nom nom nom.

ATO

InTank fuge rack for IM14

 

microbrittle starfish and stomatellas. :lol:

My first year participating (I ALWAYS miss the deadline).

I have a Fluval EVO 13.5 right now w/ only 2 clowns (one hates the other so that's fun) and a leather (+cuc). I will be moving them back to their original home - 29 biocube - over thanksgiving break. I will get 2  small nems at my local swap in February and that will probably be mostly all for livestock for now, so fish-only-ish with anemone and maybe a few real easy corals like my leather and some shrooms. Traditionally I'm not a fan of fake decor in tanks but I'm thinking about some "fun" center piece this time in the biocube set up since I won't have any real eye-catching corals happening. So that'll be my set up.

Wishlist:

**Media (size = InTank media basket for 29 biocube) - Purigen, Chemi-pure, etc; I'm open to whatever. I don't have favorites of these items and since I'm just re-setting up the biocube I can use any media right now, except floss and carbon.


**Cheesy decor -  I want to stick with a reef/ocean theme for any decor, and just to get an idea of my tastes, I have tossed around these options: the little 'working' volcano, maybe a diver on a string so it bobs around a bit, Easter Island/tiki guy. I don't want to go with a shipwreck figurine (had one for years in a "fun" puffer tank set up), otherwise I'm truly down for whatever if you find something you think is pretty fun, and I will build on it. One preference = something the fish can actually interact with, like swim through instead of something solid, and/or something that moves like the diver idea, though I don't know if the clowns would find that movement curiously fun or just annoying. lol 

**marine plants - real easy care variety because I seem to kill them all, but I always like the ones that you can actually put INside the tank like a kelp or similar

 

**auto-feeder

 

** gummy candy

 

**Amazon or Marine Depot gift card is fine too if you aren't a big shopper. 😄

 

**Last thing I can think of is an odd one - if you are anything like me and have old equip sitting around that you know you need to sell but it's so old or crusty that the amount you are going to get for it isn't worth the effort (I have SO many things like this! lol) I could probably use a skimmer for the biocube. So if you have something old/outdated tech/etc that is just collecting dust in your home and won't get you any real cash if sold, I would be just as happy with that instead of you spending money. footprint is 3.5x3.5.

Thank you!!
