Christmas reef list...what's on your's?

Well, my wife just told me that she is bought me a healthy, eating Red Sea Regal Angel for Christmas! The store has been holding it for a couple of weeks to insure it's health. Yeppiiii. I better check out the QT tank!
So, what are some of the things that are on the Christmas wish list for the reef this year? Is there any thing new out there worth mentioning?
Then again, I would be happy if our world was at peace...sounds korny, but true. Real peace is there for those that look up though!

I just told everyone money for corals and a book on corals. I figure they could do that as my other request, a Les Paul guitar, is a little out of anyone's reach. I tell them the guitar first, when they freak out I tell them or just money for corals.

I was hoping on a set of vortecs w/ battery backup... or a 52" Sony.... But I think I'm getting a bag of coal and a 500gig external hard drive to store pictures and stuff... Sounds like fish stuff will have to wait til the birthday...


Oh and I got myself a 100mm macro last month when it was on sale that I guess counts

The address of a good mail-order source for livestock (Canada), including the small colorful non-photosynthetic corals and filter-feeding invertebrates, small and cheap clown frogfish.

I got a very large T. radiata brain, and a nice red monti cap frag. I really didnt ask for anything for my tank this year. Im pretty much maxed out. Although I did get my brother a bunch of stuff. 2 koralia 2s, a coralife super skimmer, a fluval 404, a firefish, and some zoanthids.

The thread is "...what is on yours?" - it's up to fish to answer
So far they got more, then I:
- $19 frozen block of silversides (no smaller size available, next time they begin sell by truckloads), fresh frozen krill;
- angel food - for a puffer, pure carnivore and greens diet is not compensating LR finds;
- double amount of feeder shrimp for lion (I weaned it for a week, then, under family (not = children) pressure had to start feed him feeders again, and in bigger amounts
- set 20g breeding tank for livebearers for a lion;
- new pump for a corals.

More on fish list will be:
- remove this nasty stinging big tube anemone from the fish tank,
- add fresh and live LR to browse - for a puffer;
- make residence for a 100 ghost shrimps in the tank - for a lion,
- remove this ... hermits a from the tank - for a corals, they are dropping;

... super glue gel and aquarium safe epoxy putty THAT HOLD - for me.

Merry Christmas and happy holiday (for all others, like me)!

Octopus recirc 200 skimmer.

I also asked for a pallet of 100 Vortech pumps so I can sell them on eBay. The cash they generate might pay for this hobby. (I might even keep a few.)

Merry Christmas!

I asked my Girl for a Phosban Reactor, some coral, calcium, and tunze.
-
This past weekend, I got 6 frags, and a colony of the pink birds nest. I also got a Hydro Korolia 3 as a surpise (pretty good flow for the buck). Eventhough it wasnt the Tunze i wanted it was still pretty good. Today, I woke up and found the Phosban reactor in front of the door And she told me that she has something else for tomorrow but its a surpise, so it has been a good x-mas so far.
