position is adjusted so that adjacent cabinets fit smugly with one another,
making compact and sturdy structures. The cabinet-like structure of the aquaBiota Habitat™ is fabricated
from fiberglass beams entirely resistant to seawater.
This picture above shows four adjacent cabinets
for a total holding capacity of approximately 2400 kg (5280 lb).
Each of these cabinet is 3 m (9' 10'') high and contains two
stacks of 19 trays. Cabinet's height is adapted to every location.
tray has two moulded-in overflows that keep the animals in just enough water to
be submerged (9 to 11 cm, depending on water flow). The
water spills from one
level of trays down to the next below, travels through the dividers to
the overflow located at the other end, spills to the tray below, and so on. Water is
then recycled through our Water REcycling with Biofiltration
Trays in our aquaBiota Habitats have calibrated
holes strategically drilled across the floor that create a micro-current around and under the
animals. With 15
to 30 water exchange rate per hour in every tray, each animal is sure to bathe in constant flow of high quality and well-oxygenated water.
