freshwater stingrays at festival of fishkeeping

The Festival of Fishkeeping will see Freshwater Stingrays exhibiting again this year on the weekend of 7-8 October.

First of all, we’re really looking forward to another fantastic opportunity to meet up with so many of our customers. So we hope you’ll stop by and say hello to the team.  This year, we’ll have another amazing display of freshwater stingrays and oddballs for sale.  All available at show prices. We’ll be at the show both days to chat and offer advice no matter what your area of interest or level of proficiency is.  We have a complete obsession with freshwater stingrays, Asian Arowanas and all their tank mates. And with more than 7 years’ experience breeding stingrays and fish we hope you find our advice and tips helpful.


The FBAS Festival of Fishkeeping

This will be the 31st Festival of Fishkeeping hosted by The Federation of British Aquatic Societies (FBAS). It’s the UK’s biggest display of rare breed, tropical fish and reptiles and brings together the very best quality of fish and reptiles from breeders and hobbyists from around the country.  The event will take place at Hounslow Urban Farm in Feltham.  Since the show is all undercover, you can rather stay nice and dry if it does decide to rain.


Hounslow Urban Farm

Your entry to the Festival of Fishkeeping will also give you access to the farm itself. Hounslow Urban Farm is a great venue for the show. Its facilities will make a brilliant day out with the kids if you are bringing the family along too. As one of the UK’s largest community farms there’s loads to keep them entertained.  There are animal encounters and bird of prey displays. A bouncy castle and play zones.  Face painting and crafts.  Hopefully enough to keep them occupied while you check out the fish.

You can get all the information you need from their website or just set your satnav to Faggs Road, Feltham, Middlesex TW14 0LZ
