Last week, Noirin and Catherine from the Atlantaquaria, Salthill, visited and gave us a marine literacy workshop before giving us a tank with 9 sea creatures to take care of for the next four weeks. The 9 new arrivals are made up of four vertebrates and five invertebrates. The vertebrates are Pancake, the flatfish, Cobey, the sand goby and Ben and Jerry, the two silver mullet fish. The invertebrates are Patrick, the starfish, ET, the prawn, Bob, the sea anemone and Trump and Hilary, our two hermit crabs.
We are taking the responsibility very seriously, feeding them three times a week, and doing our best to ensure the temperature stays within the recommended range. We are really enjoying the experience of having a classroom aquarium.
