Episode 56: The Interplay of Science and Art with Dr. Ahna Skop (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Maintaining water quality is crucial for successful zebrafish maintenance and husbandry, especially during the startup of a fish rack. This video discusses how to keep track of the water quality parameters (ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and pH), gives an example of how we started our fish rack, and the process of the nitrogen cycle for initial rack set-up.
This video discusses the daily maintenance and upkeep of zebrafish, including keeping track of population health, our daily zebrafish rack checklist (water flow, buffer fills, etc.), and the fishes’ feeding schedule.
