Fish Lab & Marine Aquaria
Large Aquarium – we recently added four new brewing pumps, which will keep the water aerating and mixing throughout the 4000L volume. Our hard and soft corals are very healthy, apart from the Palythoa and Zoanthid specimens which were eaten by a sea urchin, so we returned the hungry culprit back to the ocean!
Small Aquarium One – the Acropora digitifera coral fragment grew little this month; the encrusting has plateaued and the corallites on the cable tie show minimal change.
Our regenerating starfish (Linckia laevigata) has shown substantial growth, with the two arms adjacent to the large arm growing at a faster rate than the others (approximately 1mm per week).
