- Feed, feed, and feed some more. If the big fish aren't hungry they are less likely to graze.
- Introduce new fish into the exhibit in acclimation enclosures.
Here are some examples of these acclimation enclosures, from yesterday's addition of porkfish, jackknife fish, chromis and wrasses.
|Originally a container for peppers, that green barrel houses a jackknife fish|
|We have a number of these cages—originally intended for poultry—well-hidden inside the GOT. This one has 8 juvenile porkfish in it presently|
|Inside this barrel sponge (1 of 2 in the GOT) lives about 30 blue chromis|
|A closer look - when the chromis are released, the center aperture will be opened and they will exit when they feel ready|
|Wrasse pen sitting on the bottom of the GOT, in the area known as "turtle alley"|
|Diver Chris (uh, that's me) observing the wrasses in their new pen a few hours after introduction|
|Visitors and curators alike appreciate this finely constructed "Francisco"|
