Funded by the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Thanks for making this possible! Checking out the new shipment Time to set up the system Equipment in the Aquaculture Room The students helped to set up all of the components to ensure that the tank was ready to fill. Just Add Water! Control Panel Set-Up Complete Fish Arrive! After all water testing was complete, we ordered the Koi. They were shipped to our facility from a grower in Florida. New Home The fish ranged anywhere from one to three inches when they arrived, and all appeared to be healthy after their long ride. The viewing window is a popular observation point for both the students and the fish. Water Testing Water testing is done regularly to make sure that pH, ammonia, nitrites, hardness, alkalinity and dissolved oxygen are in check to provide a healthy environment for the Koi. See how they’ve grown! There are approximately 200 fish in the tank. In the short time that we have had them, they have grown tremendously. Some of the fish are already approaching 5 inches in length. We plan to begin selling them once they are 8- 10 inches long.
