WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE AQUARIUM HOBBY
YATFS is a non-profit hobby organization composed of
local aquarists and dealers. It was founded in the
spring of 1972 for the express purpose of promoting
the science of exotic freshwater and saltwater fish and
plants, assisting new hobbyists, encouraging the
breeding and displaying of all aquatic life, and
acquiring and dispensing aquatic knowledge and
literature.
All persons with an interest in the aquarium hobby are
welcomed and invited to attend two meetings before
making any decision on membership
Our meetings are held the 3rd Friday of each month (unless
announced otherwise).
At the Mineral Ridge Presbyterian Church on Rt 46. Doors open
at 7:30pm & we start at 8:00.

Eric Bodrock / All Oddball Aquatics
Bio: Eric Bodrock, 54, is the Owner of All Oddball Aquatics, a tropical
fish hatchery and independent online retailer located near Pittsburgh
PA. Along with his fiancé, Regina Spotti, they currently maintain about
250 aquariums in their home based hatchery and are working with
many species of fish. Eric has been active in the aquarium hobby
since age 10 and a Corydoras catfish was the second fish he had
ever spawned! (Platy was the first)
He has worked in the retail, wholesale/distribution, installation, and
hatchery aspects of the industry. In addition to his accomplishment of
successfully spawning nearly 500 species of freshwater fish, he has
published articles, judged dozens of fish shows and has given
countless presentations. In addition to covering much of the USA, he
has traveled to aquarium related events in Canada, Germany,
Norway, and the United Kingdom.
Eric is currently serving on the board of directors of the Greater
Pittsburgh Aquarium Society, which he has been a member of for 40
years! He considers himself as a “Lifer” in the hobby and continues to
promote the aquarium hobby in every possible way…you’ll often hear
him say: “There’s always room for one more tank!”
Forty Years of Catfish Breeding!

As 2015 ended, Eric completed his 100th successful spawning of a catfish species ….and no, not
all of them were Corys! Eric’s presentation is going to cover a wide range of topics on these various
spawns. Hopefully the attendees will pick up some interesting ideas that will be beneficial & useful
in their own spawning attempts at home. Some of the techniques and many of his thoughts will also
prove to be invaluable with the successful spawning many other species of fish as well!
