Aquarium & Tropical Fish Shows coming to Olean

ARVAS, the Allegheny River Valley Aquarium Society presents its
Aquarium/Tropical Fish Show for 2016 at the Olean Public Library
on Monday, April 4th through Saturday April 9th.
This show is not the average fish show. There will be drum bowls to 30 gallon tanks all decorated and with live fish or aquatic critters. On display will be all natural tanks with real aquatic plants; tanks with novelty themes, tanks like often seen in homes (with colored gravel, colored lights, plastic plants, decorations and ornaments), and tanks with turtles, frogs, etc. This show is unique, educational, enjoyed by both children and adults, and it lasts for 6 days, Monday through Saturday. There will be literature available on the fish keeping hobby, on ARVAS, and business cards from area fish stores. Admission is free and 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 show that over 4,000 people visit the Olean Library during the week of our show.  Library show hours are Mon. through Thurs. 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fri-9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sat-10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
