  1. Proud to announce a tank in my small town of Saint Helens elementary school. Spectra donated the 20 gallon Fusion tank he won from Up Scales. Plus a heater In Tank media basket Lights he got donated from his nano forum Chemo-pure Snails from Cuttlefish Thermometer I had random supply Sand Rock Scrubber Hanna checker alk Ordered them ph test kit TFT funds bought them a Tunze nano ATO Refactometor Cuttlefish gave them a Cromis and 2 clown fish Cuttlefish also gave them a Hydro ATO at cost ( too big for this tank so it is going to a Boys and Girls club in Vancouver) This is a special needs classroom grades kindergarten thru 3rd grade Left is teacher Mrs Harkins and Sarah who started the project for her son Axel Tank just filled. There are two lights but the bracket needed to be fixed Scott checking the temp. Water got a little cold transporting Getting set up Axel looking quite pleased with his classroom tank They started studying marine life before they got the tank. All clear. Added a few coral The tank is a huge hit at the school. They LOVE !!! the snails. Scott got them a conch. When the conch was out the teacher would tell the kids they needed to get their work done so he could take a nap. The kids would go to the tank to see and then go back to their desk and get to work Lol Sometimes when a child from a different classroom is having a rough time the teachers will send them to look at the tank . Mrs Harkins children will tell them all about the tank This is such an awesome program. I love going to the school and talking to the kids and seeing the awwww on their faces Plus it brings back memories because my kids went there.

  5. New TFT tank in Saint Helens

    A new school year and new students at McBride this a 3 grade classroom so some students remain. The tank went thru a rough patch. I wasn’t doing water changes enough and the light was set for to long and to intense. We are back on track. I did add a small yellow tang to eat hair algae. The kids know he is just visiting. When new fish are added I do it during class time and the kids love helping a acclimate. If there are 8 kids the fish gets really acclimated, because I let each kid add a scoop of water. I asked the teachers to write an update on the kids daily reactions to the tank. During writing time she had the kids write letter !!! They are so precious
