Project Details
This queen angelfish inhabits our 2,500 living Caribbean Coral Reef Model Ecosystem.

Behind-the-scenes husbandry volunteers assist with maintenance of six large (500 gallons) saltwater Model Ecosystems and other small aquaria. Duties may include feedings, monitoring water chemistry, specimen collection using seine nets, performing routine water exchanges and monitoring aquaria systems. Husbandry volunteers may also interact with the public and answer questions regarding specimens and aquaria.

Please note that all volunteers are required to undergo fingerprinting and a background check.
