Lee, Richard S.
This manual introduces teachers to the biological systems at work in a marine aquarium. It provides guidance in selection of the tanks, specifically discussing the effect of capacity on the well-being of the occupants. It guides the teacher in setting up aeration, filtering, lighting, and temperature control for the aquarium. It also advises on collection or treatment of water sources for the salt water aquarium. Instructions on the construction of home-made aquarium tanks are also provided. The selection of aquarium species is somewhat specific to those collectable in the coastal waters of Alaska. A glossary of terms is provided. (RE)
