Going.. to store 🃏🃏🃏🃏🃏🃏 Like a collection of soccer players cards, a mountain of protein measurement plates are stored by many researchers. For sure they will never reuse those plates neither they will read their absorbance again, but the plates are stored until a general cleaning of their benches.. Used to load the same amount of proteins between different samples, any kind of measurement is the startong point of all comparative techniques.

Ick alert! We have Ich!!! For the past three days, the AquaPals have been struggling with a parasite outbreak in their system called Ich. This is terrifying because it has a 100% mortality rate if untreated. It is hard to treat this in our system, as we want to consume the fish once they’ve grown to maturity. So... what’s the plan? As of now, we increased the salinity of our quarantine tank to 4ppt and have increased the temperature to 88 degrees, while increasing the aeration. We have lost three fish as a result of the parasite. The second photo here shows the white spot disease well, the third shows the eyes of one of our fatalities that was infected with Ich, and the fourth shows some Ich eggs that we found on one of our fish. We are desperately seeking advice! If any fellow AquaPals have gone through this terrible experience, we would love some help to keep our fishies alive! Thank you all for your help. We are also anxiously awaiting to hear back from the #lexusecochallenge and can’t wait to hear if we won! The funds from this could certainly help us with our Ich outbreak. • • • • • • #aqua#aquaponics#aquaponicsystem#aquaponicgarden#hydroponics#hydro#fish#environment#environmentalscience#science#agriculture#farming#tilapia#sustainable#aquaculture#food#biology#research#scienceresearch
