Low-cost aquatic lab animal holding system

Zebrafish. Summer 2007;4(2):117-22. doi: 10.1089/zeb.2006.0501.


We have constructed a low-cost aquatic animal holding system that provides an alternative to expensive, commercially available systems. Our flow-through system is especially useful for programs that are limited in space and funding. The easy assembly and maintenance of the system are advantages for the researchers who may be unfamiliar with aquatic animals.
