TFP’s Annual Pond Festival – May 15-16, 2010

Japanese KoiDave here again, and I am thinking Spring!  Join us this weekend, May 15th and 16th, at our Lancaster, Pa retail store for our annual Spring Pond Sale Event.  Great deals, and a really nice selection of pond plants and fish will be on hand for the event.

When it comes to bargains on supplies, there are some really nice deals being offered: 40% off all OSI pond food; 20% off Seachem pond products; 20% off Tetra filters, pumps and lights. These and lots of other great products from some of our best manufacturers are on sale. And during your visit, don’t forget to check out the newest line – Pure Aquatic Pond Foods.

What I am really excited about for this pond season, is the great selection of Pond Fish and Koi that we have to offer this year.  For the first time, we are offering a new color of comet, the Apricot Comet.  These guys are not your typical red comet, they are creamy orange like an apricot, and their unique scale size makes them look smooth like one, too! Some really neat new fish to add to your mix.  Some of them even have translucent gill covers – the bright red of the gills underneath makes them look like they are blushing.

Apricot CometWe also have a great selection of Koi here in the store.  We have nice Domestic Koi, in both standard and butterfly fin forms, in a range of colors and sizes.  For the more discerning pond keeper, we once again have a selection of Koi imported from Japan.  This year’s fish are primarily from Sakai of Hiroshima and Yoshida Fish Farms.  We have both standard fin and longfin Japanes Koi, color varieties include; Sanke, Showa, Utsuri, Ogon, Kujaku, Asagi/Shusui. Kumonryu, and many more.

All of our pond fish and plants will be 25% off all weekend, it is a great time to stock a new pond, or look for that special fish to add to your collection.

Until next blog,

After graduating from Coastal Carolina University with a BS in Marine Science in 1996, I started my professional career in 1997 as an aquarist at Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, SC. This was an amazing experience, in which I gained invaluable hands on training in exhibit design and construction, as well as husbandry skills for a wide range of animals. In 2000 I started working at That Fish Place as one of the staff Marine Biologists, with the responsibility of maintaining one of the largest retail fish holding systems in the world. I presently hold the position of Director of Aquatic Science, where I oversee the operation of our 35,000 gallon retail aquarium systems, and provide technical support for our mail-order and retail store customer service staff. As an aquatic product specialist, I also provide support for our purchasing and marketing departments, as well as contribute web content and analysis. As a Hobbyist I acquired my love of aquariums from my father who was keeping a large aquarium in early 70’s, and set up my first aquarium when I was 12 years old. I have now been keeping aquariums for over 35 years, and through this time have kept more aquariums and types of fish than I can remember. I set up my first Saltwater aquarium in 1992, which led me down the path I still follow today.
