We offer standard and customer-specified water tanks for testing aquatic animal behavior in different controlled environments.
Use this Choice Tank to test the behavior of aquatic animals moving freely between two zones with differing water quality (pollutants, DO, pH, CO2, turbidity etc.).
The hydrodynamic design creates a stable horizontal gradient inside a L32xW40xD10 cm test section where animals are given a free dual-choice between two slow flowing (recti-linear) water columns with different water quality.
The total footprint of the tank is 168 x 42 cm.
The Choice Tank does not include any pumps or tubing needed to recirculate water or feed the tank by gravity from a header tank.
Shuttle tank for testing aquatic animal behavior in different controlled environments.
Use our tank to test the behavior of animals moving freely between zones of different water temperature, oxygen, salinity, turbidity, pollutants etc. It is also possible to set up a combination of different environmental effects, e.g. simultaneous exposure to increased temperatures and oxygen depletion.
The Shuttle tank is an 8-figure shaped tank in which an animal can shuttle between two compartments via a short passage. Water is slowly rotating inside each sub compartment preventing any mixing of water between the two.
This buffer tank is made use with a Loligo® shuttle tank and has the volume and ports needed for feeding the tank with a continuous flow of water by gravity and regulating water quality (temperature, oxygen, pH/CO2, salinity).
