Anemone Propagation System

My students need equipment, skimmers, aquarium light, pump, and energybar, to start our bubble tip anemone propagation system. We already propagate coral and clownfish - now we'd like to move on to anemones. Thanks!

My Students

Students in my Aquarium Science class come to work every day as if they're running a public aquarium. We maintain the aquarium exhibits in our hallways, library, office and main hub of the school. Everything we do is provided by grants and donations - we've been successful for years but want to grow.

Our school draws from a large geographic area and has a mix of rural, suburban and urban students.

In any one class we have kids who get up at 4:00am to do barn chores, students who live in urban housing projects and students who live in neatly kept suburban neighborhoods. It's a true melting pot where students get to experience all walks of life and take part in diverse educational programs. We pride ourselves on being a comprehensive high school with incredible arts, science and career & technical education programs all on site. We're truly unique and our students love coming to school every day.

My Project

We already have anemones in our large saltwater reef aquarium system. The clownfish we breed live in the anemones but we're interested in propagating anemones to give to other school programs. We've got the infrastructure, the expertise and the willingness to succeed. Our excellent coral propagation system is a hallmark of sustainable aquaculture and we provide coral to other school programs for educational purposes. Students will use the equipment in this request to build an extension to our coral propagation system for anemones. We have the aquarium on hand but need sufficient lighting, filtration and control equipment to keep the anemones happy and healthy as they grow. Students remove adult anemones from the tanks (they're about 12" in diameter), cut the anemones in half and put them in pond baskets to heal for about a month. After two months they look perfectly normal and can be given to other school who keep saltwater aquariums.

Our students become experts in aquaculture by being exposed to every type of aquaculture technique.

Not only do they take pride and ownership in the process of maintaining our aquarium systems, they learn lifelong skills as they develop strong work ethics and leadership skills. There is a lot to be said for students who learn to take pride in the quality and quantity of their work and spread the word about good, hands on education to other people around the world.
