Done!

Elliot, Jacob and Ian put the finishing touches on the new aquarium facility – looks great! A challenge will be to keep salinity and ammonium levels low; with just 10 mussels in each tank NH4+ levels were quite high, so still waiting for that magic bacterial culture to start in the filters.

On Friday, Elliot and Ian head to Unalaska to pick up and transport sea stars back to this facility – stay tuned for their adventure and bios on the new members of the Team Aquatic Virus (i.e. the sea stars…).
