The aquarium water requires continuous cooling to 10C. There are three systems in use:

  1. REFRIGERATION

    These refrigeration units are designed for salmonids in the classroom. They will fit either our 20 or 33 gallon tanks. They have a coil of stainless steel that sits inside the aquarium. Cost is approximately $1000.00. Please order directly from either of these suppliers.

  2. COLD TAP WATER

    This is achieved by circulating cold tap water through plastic tubing inside the tank. Depending on location and/or school district, additional guidelines exist, such as plumbing/backflow requirements and restrictions due to septic fields or wells.
