SeaLife Behind the Scene

Postby Tirtha » Fri Aug 30, 2013 3:25 am

Already we have 3 threads of Sea Life from different part of the world. We admire the fishes and the way, they are kept. I took the behind the scene tour just to understand the maintenance system they are following. And you will be surprised to see how much effort, love and technology is being involved in maintaining the small size public aquaria.

Lets start the tour then :)

Image

Water collection Kits. One bottle reserved for One en-closer/ Tank. Properly marked and sterilized.

Image

Detailed treatment board with proper progress chart

Image

This is the weighing machine they use for the Sea Turtle,

Image

All kind of water params test kits and medicine kept neatly in different shelves,

Image

Part Of Library

Image

Mouth of a String Ray. They dont bite as there is no teeth but they simply crush the food before taking it inside.

Image

Hatched Shark eggs,

Image

Welcome to the kitchen,

Image

All raw foods are stored at -9 degree (Veg and Nonveg) :p

Image

This is the transition freezer with relatively higher temp to thaw the foods before feeding.

Image

Brine Shrimp hatching (100 times bigger than my BS hatching setup :D)

Image

Look at one of many board. It clearly shows, what to feed and whom to feed. Fasting calendar and every other details.

Image

Live Feeds Culture,

Image

Meals ready. Come home honey. :D

Image

There is another area where you can see the tanks from the top. But photography was strictly forbidden. After telling them about KAC and my hobby, they simply let me click a single picture to give the idea.

Image

From this area you can feed, dive, clean, catch etc. Also they have a small breeding facility within this area. Saw couple of String ray kids. :D

This facility has round the clock doctors and maintenance guys to keep an eye on each and every tank.

Now think about our Kolkata Mach Ghar or other Indian public aquaria, their facilities and stuffs. :D

I liked the lady too... who was explaining us the things. Infact I spent most of the times staring at her :P

yes.. they take awesome care. they are so systematic, disciplined. I dont know if the say the same prepared lectures everyday, but they really sound knowledgeable.

They had a research lab too, and that was OMG stuff.

Again, this makes me cry :( we have so manyyyyyy fish lovers in the country, but not a single worldclass public aquarium :(
