I got a 5 gallon tank that I divided and put Galaxy and Kryptonite in. They're out of their little 1.5 gallon tanks now!~ Also got a $25 dollar petco giftcard.
I actually bought my friend a fish tank, too. :3 He loves animals, doesn't have a lot of money, and can't have any animals bigger than a foot long in his house due to restrictions his landlord put down on the house. So for Christmas I bought him a 2.5 gallon tank with gravel, a few silk plants, betta food and water conditioner, and I sent him $20 for the fish itself and anything else he wants for the tank. I figured a betta would be an entertaining enough animal for him, especially since they're pretty low maintenance, his younger brothers and sisters won't complain that I didn't get them anything because a fish is kind of a share-able present, and a betta wont push the landlords restrictions at all. It hasn't arrived at his house yet, but I hope he likes it, haha.

I brought home two new lovely betta boys this year for Christmas, along with one of these for one of them because I miss my other one that I had given away along with one of my boys when we moved.

Besides that nothing really fishy related this year....just some shoes and pajamas and cloths and candy and other fun little things xD You know. Can't complain though <3
I'm hoping to perhaps talk with dad this next week though about a new 5 gallon setup to divide for Alois and Ciel....I'm hoping it will be a late Christmas present to myself XDD

I got about $100 dollars in cash and PetSmart gift cards. Almost all of it has been spent on a 2.5 tank and other necessities and a fish for my cousin (Algol on here). I have maybe ten dollars left and just got $25 from one set of grandparents and intend to finally get Prince Kaida a heater and betta log + leaf hammock.
The prince got a new thermometer from me as an early present on Friday, but I have to wait until tomorrow to get the rest of his gifts, lol.
If only we were fish...getting a tropical paradise would be so easy. XD

Wow it sounds like everyone had an amazing Christmas!

@scoutandwolf: Wow That's incredible! How do you possibly keep the tank from moving all over?

Well that's just really cool to me! I hope you don't mind me asking, but Do you travel alone? Where did you get the idea to travel around?
