The crab just molted and is starting to eat again.
I have Mrs.Harrison and Mr.Sanchez’s tanks.Both tanks have mummingchogs. It takes the fish a while to eat their food. Mrs.Harrison’s tank needs 8 shrimp squirts. Mr.Sanchez’s tank needs 4-5 shrim squirts.It didnt take too long to clean and feed the tank. To clean the tanks we just wipe the tanks down with vinagar and use alge scrubbers to scrub the inside of the tank.
Yesterday my crew and I went upstairs too clean Mr.Sanchez’s tank. It was difficult, but we were able to do it. What we did was clean the outside with vinegar, scrap the inside of the tank with an algae scrapper, and test the chemicals inside of the tank.
The first thing we did was we feed the fish. Next we cleaned the outsibe of the tank. Than what we did was cleaned the inside of the tank. Also we tested all of the stuff with the tank water.
We fed a mud crab 1 squid tenticale . The salinity was 14 ppm and the ammonia was .5 ppm. The nitrate and nitrite were o ppm and the pH was 8.8. we also cleaned inside the tank and outside of it.
This is the Webpage dedicated to the tank in Mr. Sanchez’s room which is 212. This is his first year here at BTW, so we hope he feels welcome. Currently this tank has a skilletfish in it. Welcome back for the 2013-2014 school year.
We had a tank guest for about a day. Some of the seventh graders found a snapping turtle while outside yesterday. The turtle called BTW home for the night but is ready to continue its journey in the wild and will be released today to its rightful place in the wild. The turtle is in a 5 gallon bucket in the picture below to give you an idea of size.
Today, Ms. Presson’s tank, the one with the blenny, was moved to her room today! Now in class, we can watch it! 🙂 We haven’t thought of a name yet. We’ll let Ms. Presson decide that. Today, the blenny caught the squid we gave it in his mouth finally! Yay! We think the fish is very cute and it’ll love being in Room 212! 😀
Today I cleaned ms Pressons tank. I fed her fish and I did the salinity
New fish in tank. The fish is a Blenny.
