Holiday Gift Ideas for Aquarium Hobbyists

Betta TreasuresSometimes shopping for that special someone can be rough, especially if your special someone’s favorite past time is aquarium keeping. You may not know what they already have or what they need, or what they use on a regular basis. Here are a few suggestions sure to please the budding fish lovers or seasoned aquarium keepers of the family.

Let’s get the obvious choice out of the way. You could play it safe with a TFP gift card. Purchase the card for any amount and allow the recipient to spend at his or her leisure.

Maybe you have a child that has expressed an interest in keeping fish, or you have a friend who may not have the time for a real tank, but would enjoy a low maintenance pet. A betta set-up may be the perfect gift solution! With several new and attractive bowl habitats available, setup is quick, easy, and fun.  The Tetra Waterfall Globe is an excellent option, and it includes simple filtration and LED lighting. Betta Treasures are basic bowls that sit on lovely sculpted pedestals (I’m partial to the seahorse trio) that look great at home or in the office, no cords necessary. Top off the gift by taking the recipient out to pick out a beautiful, easy to care for betta and maybe some decor to adorn their new bowl. Read More »

Winter Frag Swap 2011 Wrap-Up

Peachtree Chalice by Jason FoxThis past weekend we held our annual TFP/NCPARS Winter Frag Swap Extravaganza, and I would like to thank everyone who attended the show.  Thank you to our participating manufacturers who donated time and products, which made the swap an overwhelming success.

This was our biggest frag event yet, with upwards of 400 people who registered for the NCPARS swap, and hundreds more who showed up to the store for the great sales that went on all weekend long.  Mid day Saturday, you could barely move in the swap, we made a 2500 square foot space, feel like a broom closet.  There was something for everyone, from the rare and incredible corals from Jason Fox, to the guy with easy starter frags in Tupperware containers.

Thanks to our great manufacturers, we had some very lucky folks walk away with some very nice door prizes and raffle items.  From Reef Capable Marineland LED lights to Perfecto and Current USA tank set ups, and much, much more.  If you missed this one, you really missed out on one heck of an event.  We look forward to working with NCPARS again, and growing the show into a regional event.

Felicia McCaulley was here to take some phenomenal photos and a commentary on the event. Read more about this year’s swap here.

Customer Appreciation Event 2010 and Fall Frag Swap

We have combined two of our most popular events; our annual Customer Appreciation Sale, and our NCPARS/TFP frag swap into one weekend. We may be crazy, but that is the way we like it around here. The event weekend is October 2nd and 3rd, the frag swap will be held on saturday October 2nd from 11-5 here in the store, with the same setup as our two past winter frag events.

The Customer Appreciation event is free, and access to all the manufacturers and event sales are open to everyone. The Frag Swap is admission only, $5 dollars for NCPARS members, $10 for non members. All proceeds benefit NCPARS (North Central Pennsylvania Aquarium and Reef Society), a local non-profit aquarium club. There will be hundreds, if not thousands, of frags available inside the swap, and all TFP livestock will be 25% off the entire weekend. For more information and to pre-register for the event visit NCPARS, and check out some of the amazing frags available. You can pre-arrange trades, or browse at the event. pre-registration is not required, you can pay at the event if you just want to show up.

Come on out and join the fun, it is going to be huge!!!!!

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,

Dave
