I got my fish Pi (SIP) an Tipton igloo for Christmas once. He didn't go in it much but he liked it. Sometimes Topfin's Christmas ornaments aren't safe for a fishtank, but I had no problems with the igloo.

Would you keep a dog in a small box? Then why would you keep a fish in a bowl?

As for decorating, I think I'm going to try home made fake frost on one of the tanks and see how it looks. I got the idea from goldfish keeper Solid Gold on Youtube - https://youtu.be/ChcBNdJ3PZw Seems easy enough to do. Her other Christmas tank decorating ideas are also fun.
Oh this is great! I have a fish named Frost :D Did you see her next video with window clings and glass trees? What a fabulous idea! Bettas could see the image on the tank and so easy to remove. Look out Dollar Tree! You all are giving me great ideas for the fish room and the best part if it is winter themed you can leave it up longer and enjoy!

Yep, I loved the glass trees! I've been trying to find a suitable one but so far no such luck. I think I'll go and see what the local hand made glass stores have...

Planted tanks and cute fish - Sparky, Squirt and Lumi.

Just curious what is a soft water community?

Just a soft water aquarium with fish suited for those conditions (neon tetras, rasboras etc). I tried keeping guppies but they just don't last very long in my water and I don't want to start altering the parameters.

Understand. I don't like messing with parameters either. Our water is extremely hard here.

Really? I didn't know that about Top Fin's Christmas ornaments! I'm was considering getting a gingerbread house or something similar for my Betta for Christmas. Do you think that would be a good idea? Anyone?
I don't have much experience with Top Fin at all. :)

I have the igloo and it is fine. As with any ornament you can do a 24 hour soak before adding to tank. I use ornaments off and on and most with no problems. If has knock you down chemical odor after soak I wouldnt use. Most stores will take something back if have receipt and explain problem. I like Gingerbread house too. Might get one if they have good black Friday sale.

Some people have reported that Top Fin decorations peel and flake after being in the aquarium for a while. Some people use a spray sealant--make sure that it's aquarium safe!--but others avoid that brand. I have a Top Fin Halloween decoration in my tank, and I've had no trouble with it, but I do consider carefully before buying Top Fin decorations.

I love decorating my tanks for Christmas! I usually put small stockings by each of their tanks and use Christmas decor too. I'll sometimes only use red and green silk plants for added festivity :)

I also buy them presents and wrap them up and put them under our tree! It's fun.

I'm a Scuba Diver because that's as close as I can get to being a fish.
