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.

2019 YATFS AUCTION Sunday,
MAR 10 & OCT 20 SEE AUCTION PAGE
Jonathan Strazinsky, aka TheFishGuy, has been in the hobby for 33 years now.
He’s always looking to further his education when it comes to this hobby. His main
focus is and always has been Central and South American cichlids, specifically the
larger growing or aggressive species. A carpenter by trade, and now teaching
Construction Tech at the local high school, he’s often married his profession to the
hobby, building tanks, tank stands and various other DIY projects. Jonathan is
family man, often bringing one of his four children to fish related events. He has
had many speaking engagements at fish clubs around the Midwest and he’s got a
big personality. He encourages audience  participation and often starts
discussions in the middle of presentations with audience members. Entertaining
and informative, Jonathan is as willing to learn as he is to teach! His passion for
keeping New World Cichlids is infectious! The title of his presentation is “Memoirs
of a 1200 Gallon Aquarium” which delves into the do’s and don’t’s of aquarium
building, fish keeping, success and failure and even some shenanigans. It’s a
complete history of the tank with video shot the morning of the presentation!
