I hope there will be lots of photos added last minute, I can't wait to see what everyone is doing.

Meanwhile, I finally took better photos of GUppy's Winter Wonderland... here they are, hope it is not too much. :)


This is the whole picture. I made a winter wonderland mountain to baffle Guppy from the TV and Speakers. The soft snow helps muffle the sound while the "cave" keeps the flicker light of the TV out of his sight.

There is a blue LED light behind the tank to light up the background. The top of the mountain is decorated with holiday ornaments including a real fir branch, and his very own special ornament. A matching blue crystal tree adorns the inside of his home to bring the winter wonderland closer to home.


This is the crystal blue tree inside his tank, I thought of adding white sand for snow, but was worried it would be too hard to clean out later, and cause Guppy too much stress. He is still healing from a torn tail so I had to keep that as a factor.


The top of the mountain is adorned with ornaments that also are on my tree, plus a real fir branch and his special ornament dangling bellow, next to hand made icicles.


A closeup of the ornament, isn't it adorable!


Closeup of the Swarovski crystal icicles I made :) Nothing is too fancy for my little boy!


Here is Mr. Guppy, enjoying his winter retreat... here you can see a little more of the winter background. The lights off my tree are reflecting in the tank front wall. It is rather pretty, I think.


Another attempt at showing the winter scene in the background.


and this is guppy when he's had too much eggnog. ha ha!


Merry Christmas everyone!

Thanks for letting me share.

Atena :)

Well, so far there isn't much (I hope there will be though).

Thank you for the compliment.

Atena, your tank looks great! I'm not sure I could do much, I like all my tanks having a natural look, and I find that adding ornaments just kind of mess up my ideas, so I'm not sure I would qualify xD

If I did any thing, all I could do is decorate the outside of Shosta's travel tank... lol I'll have some free time on my hands tomorrow, so I might get bored enough to do that haha

Oh I hope I do, I'm going to sit around and watch netflix all day xD
(and stare into the tank for a few hours of course, I could watch fish all day if no one stopped me lol)

Maybe I'll get creative

But you know you WANT another one... hehehehe

Hmmm... you do have a point there... maybe we can change the prize to something like one aquarium related item that is $25 or below on Amazon.com?? I'll defer to a123andpoof.

It's up to you DiiQue since you are the one so generously offering it. I do think that is a good idea though. But then I'm the type who can never have to many heaters lol
