Aquarium Systems

About the Course


Students will learn about tropical and coldwater aquarium systems. They will be involved with the maintenance of the tanks, water quality testing and feeding of the fish.  Our fish tank area is a calm relaxing environment for students to learn and certainly has a positive effect on those who may normally find it hard to concentrate in a classroom.


Possible Progression Routes


Students that have a strong interest in aquarium systems could go on to study a Fisheries Management course at college. There are other higher level OATA (Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association) qualifications should students want to further their studies. There is a range of potential jobs within this industry including working as an aquatics assistant, fish tank installer and maintainer or in fish farming and breeding.
