All of the installations need upkeep and supervision on a daily basis. We use maintenance passageways to get direct access to all of the aquariums so as to be able to clean them, and also to feed the fish.

To ensure proper care for the fish, it is vital to recreate a balanced ecosystem in each aquarium. This is why all of the tanks throughout the exhibition are fitted out with a water filter system to clean out the waste produced by the fish.
Moreover, a drip system means that roughly 10% of the water inside the aquariums can be replenished per week.
The fish that we look after originally come from the tropics, and therefore we fix the water temperature at around 25 °C, and the tanks are constantly lit throughout the year to recreate the conditions of the fish’s natural habitat.
