AQUARIUM – SCIENCE AT CHESTER ZOO

In the Aquarium at Chester Zoo our aquarists have to test the water of the tanks every single day to make sure the chemistry of the water is at exactly the right balance for our aquatic species.

Corals especially are very sensitive to changes in their environment, both here in the zoo and in the wild.

This video gives you a good introduction to the sorts of water tests we do and why they’re important.
