A bit of tinsel here... a light or two there... maybe a christmas tree... or .... ???? could it be an Aussie Christmas scene?

Get your ideas fermenting and start giving your fish a Betta Christmas makeover!

I've already got it planned out in my head. I just hope it works as well. We are putting up the Christmas tree today, so will get some supplies from that (we keep everything Christmas in a large box or two). :)

I'm pretty annoyed that we got rid of our Barbie stuff.. they had mini Christmas lights, Christmas dinners, wine glasses.. :Drunk_Buddies2:

They had been in storage for years, and we just moved them out for storage of jars.. like last month. :rant:

Anyway, I won't tell my ideas because.. well, then I'll give it away. Anybody else got it planned out.. or even finished?

Just e-mailed my entry. It seemed better in my head, but was fun all the same, so I do not care if I win or not. :)

I used my red/white Butterfly VT, Strawberry & Cream. He was very happy to do his part.. just swim in a tank. :giggle:

Just to make sure you understand - yes, I'm happy with my entry, except of coarse I have a big imagination, and things seem more extravagant in my head.. if you know what I mean. :P

How is everyone else's going? Just a friendly inquiry. :D

All you Betta keepers out there with fry... how about a baby Betta's First Christmas tank for the competition? :)

Or the people with giants.... how about a Big Betta Christmas entry?

Or even a WILD Christmas entry :)

To make the tree do you get a wire mold thing, and put the moss around it?

I hope it comes in time for you, it is express post isn't it, if so it should. I'm sure your shrimp will love it if it doesn't work.
