Welcome back!

Welcome to Booker T. Washington marine science.  The aquatics lab is gearing up for the 2016-2017 school year.  While you will recognize many of our residents from last year, there are also some new residents in the lab.  On this Website, you will be able to find information about your class (either with links on the left of the page or in the classes drop-down menu at the top) and students will write posts about our animals.

Speece and Gibson

Today we cleaned the tanks in Ms. Speece’s room as well as Mrs. Gibson’s room. In Ms. Speece’s tank we received three killifish, they eat brine shrimp. Both tanks have consistent salinity, ammonia, ph., nitrite, and nitrate levels.

Tank 18

The blue crab ate 1/2 of a squid filet. The salinity is 17, the ammonia is .5, the nitrate is 200, the nitrite is .5, and the pH is 7.
