Question Birthday gift advice

I'm here on my fiance's account. His birthday is coming up and not sure what to get him. One idea I think may work really well is something for his axolotls or even a fourth axolotl. If anyone would want to give me advice on what to get him that would be great. Thanks

A fourth axolotl would be cool. I'm assuming his are already full grown? If you know the size of the tank that would help because you don't want to surprise him with an over crowded tank.

Well his has a room full of tanks. The biggest one is about 40 gallons. Then he has two twenty gallons as well as two twenty gallon long tanks. And finally two ten gallon tanks.
He has two fully grown axolotls one leucistic one golden albino. His third axolotl is wild type but only seven inches.

Nothing wrong about asking him? Maybe a new tank?

Thanks for all the help
I figured out what to get him.
I brought him to the local pet shop and got everything he could want.
He is very happy

A new axolotl is always the key to a mans heart.
