4fishstuff evolved from a supply store set up for farmers by a few members of the Tropical Farms Association (FTFFA) in 1968. They determined that they could save significant amounts of money by purchasing needed supplies directly from manufacturers at wholesale prices.
By reselling supplies to other farmers at a modest profit we began to accumulate funds to be used to support research for the tropical fish industry and monitor state and federal political activities that could result in laws or regulations detrimental to our industry.
In 1986 we expanded by renting a warehouse/store front and began to solicit business from outside the fish farming community in Florida. We subsequently moved to larger facilities with a greatly expanded inventory of goods. Our current customer lists include fish farmers throughout the U.S and the Caribbean, Pet Distributors and wholesalers, State Aquariums, Universities, Pet Shops both in the U.S and abroad, Aquarium Service Firms and hobbyists of all types.
We are the suppliers to the professional pet fish industry and provide the products and equipment the members of the industry need to produce the pet fish for the consumer. Our store is located in the heart of the U.S. tropical fish producing region just south of Tampa, Florida.
This website is our online store and is dedicated to the consumer interested in fish keeping. The site is continuously updated as we add new products, photos and descriptions. In the future you will find links to other sites that provide advice and problem solving assistance. We have a toll free line at 1-800-940-3833 for you to address any questions you may have as well as an online email contact form.
Our mission is to provide you with supplies and equipment at good prices to make your fish keeping experience pleasurable. Your success with tropical fish is most important to us!
