1.1 L Tank

Display per page

Tank

The tank is made of light blue polycarbonate for better visibility, providing the animals with a uniform environment in terms of light; this also inhibits the growth of algae. The tank, cleanable with no difficulty, features a smooth surface and sloping base, which eases all the dirty particles down towards the extraction zone. The tank design is optimal for maximizing the rearing of fry by providing the fish with a reduced column of water. It allows fish to reduce swimming distance to reach the food on the water surface and therefore allows them to preserve energy for their developmental growth. Thanks to its compact design it is also suggested for single housing of adult fish (for specific research protocols and/or genotyping purposes) maximizing animal density in the system. The tank can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F.

Lid

The lid is designed to create a mechanical enclosure to the tank and at the same time maintain an optimal visibility of the fish. It is made of transparent polycarbonate plastics, in the same color of the tank (there is no alteration of the light in the tank). The design features a hole for the inlet of the water (not flexible tube is required) and a cone-shaped hole for the introduction of food. The lid can be easily lifted (with water supply tap shut off) to gain accessibility to animals keeping the tank on the rack. The dome-shape allows keeping all the water evaporation inside the tank and moving all the relevant drops on the side, guaranteeing a perfect visibility at all time. The lid can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F.

Baffle

The baffle has the specific object of mechanically dividing the housing compartment of the tank with the technical extraction portion. All baffles are made of polycarbonate plastics, and can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F. Each baffle is designed to accommodate any specific fish need based on their developmental stage.

1.1L Fish Net - Blue

The one and only autoclavable net available on the market. Specifically shaped for Tecniplast 1.1 Liter housing tank. Distinctive blue color, to be utilized in your main zebrafish system, to prevent cross contamination with the quarantine area (for which we offer the dedicated yellow color net)

Divider

Its design allows the physical separation of the tank in two halves. It is meant to maximize animal density in a tank and to allow single housing husbandry conditions. The transparent plastics ensures the visual contact between the fish (even if housed in separate halves), thus providing a natural enrichment for the animals. The dedicated holes allow a good water circulation through the entire volume of the tank, maximizing water quality and debris removal. The divider can easily be inserted/removed by the operator (without the need of any tool) and it stays firmly in place thanks to the dedicated runners in-built in the tank design. It is designed to work with Tecniplast 1,1L tank only (ZB11TK). The divider is made in Polycarbonate plastics, and can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F
