Our show is not the average fish show. There are drum bowls to 30 gallon tanks all decorated and with live fish or aquatic critters. There are all natural tanks with real aquatic plants, tanks with novelty themes, tanks with colored gravel, colored lights , plastic plants and decorations and tanks with turtles, frogs, etc. Our show is unique and educational and it lasts for 6 days, Monday through Saturday and enjoyed by both children and adults. There is also literature available on the fish keeping hobby, on ARVAS, and business cards from area fish stores. Viewers have an opportunity to vote for their favorite tank. Besides the regular library clientele, our show brings in a lot more people, young and old, family and friends.
Library statics showed that over 3,000 people visited the Olean Library during the week of our show this year.
