Any Idea on Anniversary Treats?

Well, on the 23rd it's going to be my 6th month anniversary with Lebron! And, I want to get something special for him as he means a lot to me. <3 Any ideas? His tank is cycled, heated, proper varied diet, etc. So I can't add anything more to make his living space better. I'm starting to plant his tank soon so that's off my list... Any ideas? It might also give other members here ideas on special things. Maybe I can change his decorations a bit... Or find some live food or frozen foods... Maybe a lady friend. Lol. JK.
Any ideas would be REALLY AWESOME! Me and Lebron thank you. :)

Go catch some insects in the woods and chop off their heads so they can't slice into your fish. If you manage to get a large buggy, cut their bodies up so they're bite sized. I fed mine caterpillars, fruit flies, banana worms, skitos, stuff. You've seen the pictures.

O.O Well, there are bugs outside where I live but there might be pesticides. I'm still renting, and my parents aren't sure if there are pesticides. There are crickets, though! I have fruit flies here, but might have the pesticides and they fly. :/

maybe a new frozen food, like frozen mysis shrimp or daphnia, unless you already feed that. maybe a new plant real or fake or a new decoration.

I can't find frozen foods in my Petsmart. :\ I really wanted the daphnia just in case but I can't find it... Live plants cover the decoration part but I might change the barrel in the middle of the tank. :)

Yay! Fish supposedly love it, though I've never tried it myself.
It's recommended over ocean fish because FW naturally have less mercury content. (Fun fact)

That's even better! Healthy, and delicious. ;) I'm going to make a cake for Lebron! :D Tilapia as the base, bloodworm for a candle, and stuff pellets in the tilapia! Yum... And don't worry, I'll make it very small. Smaller than you think. I'll even pinch out pieces of it so it won't fall apart in the tank.
