The Aquatic Holding Zone accommodates Zebrafish (Danio rerio) and amphibians (Xenopus laevis and Xenopus tropicalis).
Both species can be accommodated in dedicated holding tanks, with water quality maintained by dedicated filtering and condition systems complete with automated sensing of water quality and alarm systems.
