MyBabiesHaveScales 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 don't have much experience with Top Fin at all. :)
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.

themamaj 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.

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

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!

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.
