eRack Giveaway: Supporting Zebrafish K-12 Science Education
Call for Proposals
 

Aquaneering is once again supporting zebrafish science education through a call for proposals to award one eRack to a deserving K-12 teacher with a demonstrated need and clear capacity to advance the use of zebrafish in their classrooms.

Description

The eRack is a complete zebrafish housing system for classroom settings. It is a self-contained system with a four-step filtration process to maintain consistent water quality for the fish and a carbon pre-filter to remove chlorine from incoming water. (If RO water is used, salts will need to be added back in.) All that is required is a floor drain or sink for water discarded during daily exchanges.

The eRack has two shelves: one with five 2.8-liter and one with eight 1.8-liter tanks, and includes six breeding tanks are included for embryo production. The rack is on casters and can be transported from its permanent location to a lab or classroom whenever needed.

Overall rack dimensions: 41” wide x 20” deep x 63” tall

Approximate yearly cost for consumables:    
25 Watt UV Replacement Lamp   $65
Carbon Filter Sleeve (12") 5 each   $44
Activated Carbon 6 Lbs.   $32
Fish Food – 1 Lb. Bag   $10
6-Way Test Strips (24/pack) 5-Way strip for alkalinity, pH, nitrite, nitrate, hardness. Separate ammonia strip.
  $21
Total   $172
