The Aquarium

The technical equipment of the Aquarium must guarantee that more than 420 species of fish can feel safe and at home in 500,000 litres of water. Many kilometres of piping run through the building, gigantic refrigerating machines make sure that cold-water animals can remain cold-blooded even in the summer.

Filter and protein skimmers keep the water clear, any amount of lamps lighten the small underwater worlds for the visitor. Behind the scenes there are also the quarantine basins and the breeding basins for young fish and for live food. Not forgetting the workshops and the storehouse for decoration material.

The keepers ascertain that every inhabitant of the house is fed adequately, gets its home regularly spring-cleaned and – if necessary – receives medical treatment.
