My husband's gift this year was the Vertex skimmer - first time it wasn't a surprise but I was desperate ok :mrgreen: But I'm sure we all indulged ourselves with the various sales going on. I only bought a couple of things at the JL sale (trying to show restraint while new tank takes shape): a cool scroll coral, and this:

(Excuse the algae, HOB skimmer has been unable to keep up with my fish:redface:)
I always wanted a starfish but most are too big and they are difficult to keep. But I really couldn't resist this one and feel it has a good chance in my tank. (S)he didn't move around too much at first but today was very active. A fascinating creature. Amazing colour.

Lol unfortunately... but I do like you starfish. The tank I have now is great (150g) but I bought it used so there are some things I wanted to change. Finally pulled the pin and will be building a 225g with 80g sump.

Not aquarium-related, but I dropped ridiculous money on power and hand tools.

Haha this works as well! Keep her happy and you will get less resistance when acquiring some Hot new SPS this year.

Bought some fish (nothing too exciting) - Humuhumu trigger, Niger trigger, Stars & Stripes puffer, some damsels, Yellow wrasse, Richardson's dwarf eel & Snowflake moray (sm). These are mostly fish my daughters chose.

I usually only buy supplies at the J&L Boxing Day Sale however this year there was a Regal Angel with my name on it.

It is the perfect addition to my other Angels.

My 125G tank is now the home of a Potters Angel, a Blue Face Angel, a Majestic Angel and now a Regal Angel.
