Pre-School Goes Peacock!

It has been a while since we've posted here and the cyber cobwebs have accumulated. But, starting today, we will return to our blog with regular monthly (and, perhaps, even weekly) posts. 

City Aquarium recently constructed a 165-gallon freshwater tank for a wonderfully imaginative pre-school in Brooklyn, NY, The Brooklyn Pre-School of Science. The owner of the pre-school, who goes by the name of "Carmelo the Science Fellow," believes in the importance of teaching children, even as young as 5, basic science. To that end, the pre-school contains five terrariums, a large planted wall, and now a tank of African Cichlids.

For decor, we chose Texas Holey Rock, a limestone rock with a honeycomb-like appearance. We populated the tank mostly with Peacocks, choosing males for their bright colors. The emphasis in our trade is usually on colorful saltwater fish, but, while there's truth to that, African Cichlids are not a bad alternative. The smiles on the kids' faces can certainly attest to that. In fact, one film-savvy kid has already named the Fire Queen Cichlid... wait for it... "Nemo"!
