About the Speaker

Kevin is the owner and sole operator of Tangled Up in Cichlids(TUIC), an internet-based tropical freshwater fish import/export & breeding company with global distribution that has been in operation since 1995. TUIC specializes in New World Cichlids, as well as characins, cyprinids, catfish, pleco, and other rare and unusual fish species from around the globe.

Kevin has been in the aquarium hobby for over 35 years, most of which was as a private hobbyist and breeder until taking on the role of owner/operator of TUIC in 2019. Tangled Up in Cichlids is located in Northwestern NJ and is a full-time operating, closed to the public 11,000-gallon, 2,000 sq. ft. facility.
