The Hidden Reef RevealedPosted on Thursday, February 10th, 2011 at 5:42 pm by Felicia McCaulley
In 2009 I remember reading an article in TFH magazine about a store called The Hidden Reef in Levittown, PA near Philadelphia. I found myself wishing we had more local fish stores like that nearby. A year later my wish was granted when my husband was offered a job in Philadelphia. At the time I was the photographer/identifier for Liveaquaria’s Diver’s Den, and I absolutely loved my job. I was worried I might not be able to find a job that would allow me to stay in the reef industry, but I always had that article about The Hidden Reef in the back of my mind. Everything fell into place, and I am now working for The Hidden Reef! It’s different from what I’m used to, but I’m enjoying the hands-on approach and interacting with customers and my co-workers who are also knowledgeable hobbyists.
Even if you don’t live in the area, it’s definitely worth making a trip to check out the store. Right now we have (in my opinion) the best selection of corals in the area including Acroporas (even a blue one for $59.99!), a fat Copperband Butterfly that eats frozen brine, a Caribbean Red Scorpionfish that eats frozen mysis, a fabulous LED tank with fluorescing corals, a Potter’s Angel, a BREEDING pair of clingfish, my personal favorite Hawaiian Red Leaffish, and countless other fish, corals, inverts, and dry goods. I hope to see you there soon; be sure to say hi!
