Constructing a Trout Tank:

Constructing a Trout Tank PROJECT BY: KEATON

MATERIAL RESOURCES:

MATERIAL RESOURCES Tank Water Trout Eggs TeacherTube Videos Gravel Chiller Food Laptop

PEOPLE RESOURCES:

PEOPLE RESOURCES Mrs. Abernethy — She helped with the construction and care of the tank and trout. Student Help — They helped assemble and maintain the tank, put in the eggs, keep data and feed the trout. Experts and TeacherTube Videos — They helped teach me all I needed to know to build the tank and keep the trout healthy and safe.

PROCEDURE:

PROCEDURE There are 7 steps I used in developing a Trout Tank Step 1 — Set-up the Tank Step 2 — Fill the Tank with Water Step 3 — Install the Chiller Step 4 — Put Eggs in Tank Step 5 — Collect Data Step 6 — Feed Trout Step 7 — Release Trout

STEP 1 — SET-UP THE TANK:

STEP 1 — SET-UP THE TANK OCTOBER 2013 Setting up the tank included: Cleaning the tank Adding gravel Installing the filter to keep the tank clean

STEP 2 — FILL THE TANK WITH WATER:

STEP 2 — FILL THE TANK WITH WATER OCTOBER 2013 I filled the tank with many gallons of water from our classroom sink.

STEP 3 — INSTALL THE CHILLER:

STEP 3 — INSTALL THE CHILLER NOVEMBER 2013 The chiller was installed to keep the water temperature at 55 degrees fahrenheit for the eggs. It circulates the water to create a flow for the eggs and eventually the trout.

STEP 4 — PUT TROUT EGGS IN THE TANK:

STEP 4 — PUT TROUT EGGS IN THE TANK NOVEMBER 2013 There were at least one hundred trout eggs delivered to our class. They had to be taken out of the mailing container by eye droppers, one by one. They had to be put in the tank within a few hours, so they had a better chance of surviving.

STEP 5 — DATA COLLECTION:

STEP 5 — DATA COLLECTION Everyday, we needed to keep track of the trout. We checked the tank for dead eggs. We could tell they were dead because they were reddish-white. It is also very important to test the water quality with a water testing kit.

STEP 6 — FEEDING TROUT:

STEP 6 — FEEDING TROUT When the trout have hatched, after about 60 days, they are not ready to eat. The way you know it is time to feed the trout is when they are big enough to swim up to the top of the water. Then, the trout get fed a small amount of fish food once everyday by Mrs. Abernethy.

STEP 7 — RELEASE TROUT:

STEP 7 — RELEASE TROUT April 2014 In the spring, the trout will be large enough to release into nature. In April, they will be released into the river at Riverside Park where they will continue to grow outside of the tank.

TROUT TANK PROJECT:

TROUT TANK PROJECT The entire project is taking place from October 2013 - April 2014. It has been a great experience to see eggs hatch into trout and learn how to make it happen like it does in nature.
