There have been no changes in our main display aquarium during February, and all species and corals continue to do well.
Rotifers – at the start of February, there was a crash in rotifer numbers, but we have since recovered the populations.
Artemia – we are continuing to feed our Artemia with diatoms (Thalassiosira weissflogii), reducing the need for algae, so we have scaled down algae production from two 100L buckets to a single 20L bucket.
Jellyfish – Aurelia aurita
We are maintaining a population of 296 jellyfish in the Kreisel tank under our current protocols (water changes maintained at 35% every two days, with a larger water change when required).
On 15 February, we started a new strobilation; the ephyra development stage are expected by 8 March. The large display cylinder was drained and thoroughly cleaned in preparation for restocking.
