Bodrock, Eric

Thank you to an Anonymous Donor for sponsoring Eric at the 2019 convention!


Eric Bodrock, 57, is the owner of All Oddball Aquatics, a tropical fish hatchery and independent online retailer located just south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Along with his fiancé, Regina Spotti, they currently maintain about 300 aquariums in their home based hatchery where they work with a wide range of fish species.

Eric has been active in the aquarium hobby since age 10 and has worked in the retail, wholesale distribution, installation, and hatchery aspects of the industry. In addition to his accomplishment of successfully spawning over 500 species of freshwater fish, including over 110 different catfish, he has published articles, judged dozens of fish shows, and has given presentations, many while traveling abroad to aquarium related events in Canada, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom and all over the USA.

Eric is a life member of the Greater Pittsburgh Aquarium Society, which he has been a member of for 40 years! He considers himself to be 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!”
