Design. Build. Gather. Balance. Ecosystem Creation!
There is a lot that goes into creating healthy aquatic ecosystems. Students will design and build their own aquascape, gather specimens, and balance the fragile tank chemistry. After creating their personalized ecosystems, students will gather scientific data that will allow them to maintain a thriving environment.
Various types of fish traps will be discussed as participants decide the best method for collecting their inhabitants. Proper growing and feeding techniques are reviewed to emphasize the importance maintaining optimum phosphate and nitrite levels for healthy plants and animals.
