Dean Tweeddale

CCAC July 2nd, 2020 VIRTUAL MEETING – Dean Tweeddale speaking on the In’s and Out’s of Collecting Fish in the Peruvian Jungles

Dean Tweeddale is a master breeder who started keeping fish over 50 years ago. He started with guppies, moved on to discus, and has since bred countless species of freshwater fish. Always an innovator, Dean has, throughout his fishkeeping career, built three in-house fish rooms and developed an incredible fry system. Some of his proudest moments in the hobby are developing a system to raise discus artificially, breeding many rare dwarf cichlids, continuous spawning of German blue rams, and spawning several L-number plecos including most recently zebra plecos. He has collected and bred wild fish from Peru and has appeared on a number of YouTube channels including Aquarium Co-Op, Swishkey, L.R.Bretz’s Aquatics, Bentley Pasco, and Dustin’s Fish Tanks.

Joe Fleckenstein

CCAC June 4, 2020 MEETING – CCAC Joe Fleckenstein speaking on Big Ponds

speaker bio

Joe Fleckenstein, past president of the Circle City Aquarium Club in Indianapolis, has been in the hobby seriously for about twenty-five years. He formerly maintained many species of fish in a basement fishroom consisting of over 130 aquariums.  Joe has recently moved to a larger property and is currently working on constructing a separate building in order to expand and update his hobby. Joe has a B.S. degree in Biology/Zoology and an M.S degree in secondary education from Ball State University.  He is employed as a high school science teacher.

Joe will give a program on how he turned his above ground pool into a pond housing tropical fish in the summer.  The talk will include how he maintained his 13,000 gallon oasis in the backyard of his home in Indianapolis.  He will discuss the types of plants and fish he has kept in the pool pond as well as many other aspects of this unusual spin-off of his “aquaristic” addiction.


Please Note – due to the continuing COVID-19 crisis, and travel restrictions within Marion County, this will be a “virtual” meeting. We will be using the BlueJeans app for this presentation. The meeting link is below.

We hope to resume a more normal meeting format in July with a very exciting speaker, as well as mini-auction. We will are also planning to hold a combined virtual-live format beginning in July.


Free and open to the public.
