I am trying to establish an updated consensus of the most optimal
parameters for zebrafish rearing.
Please try and take the time to fill in your parameters on the
water quality parameters:
frequency of feedings
number of tanks
number of fish per tank/stocking density
foot-candles of illumination
average baby survival rates %
age of oldest fish in system
length of fecundity
average size of clutches (pairs versus group mating)
Have you experienced any parasitic, bacteriological or viral
outbreaks in your system and if so, how did you resolve them?
If you had the ability to change something in your system, what
would it be?
Please add any additional comments categories or suggestions.
When compiled this information will be released to the list server
for the benefit of the zebrafish community. Participants may remain
Please direct responses to my address at: lavere at nih.gov
Thank you for your participation.
