Die SPS-Anlage (SPS = small polyp stoney coral) für kleinpolypige Steinkorallen stellt hohe Anforderungen an die Wasserqualität und die Nährstoffe. Deshalb werden auch die Filteranlagen einen hohen Qualitätsstandard aufweisen. Zudem wird die Anlage genügend Platz für die Nachzuchten benötigen.
Die LPS (Large polyp stoney coral), also grosspolypige Steinkorallen bevorzugen in der Regel etwas andere Rahmenbedingungen, weshalb die Anlagen getrennt laufen.
Hier werden Tiere artgerecht vorgestellt und gezüchtet.
In dieser Anlage werden keine Tiere gehalten. Im Öko-Becken werden „die Oceane der Zukunft“ nachgestellt mit erhöhten Temperaturen und überwucherten Sedimenten.
Seminar-Hardware, Schulungsmaterial, Plakatwände etc.
Im Labor werden Plankton und weiteres Futter gezüchtet und die Wasseranalysen durchgeführt. Hierfür werden kleine Becken und Behälter und wenige Laborgeräte benötigt. Auch findet hier die Wasseraufbereitung statt.
Eine Quarantäne dient der Eingewöhnung und Überwachung von Tieren bevor diese in die Themenbecken verlegt werden. Dazu werden Becken benötigt, welche auch individuelle Massnahmen erlauben. Nur einwandfreie und gesunde Tiere werden in die „Grossanlagen“ eingesetzt.
Tiere, welche aus unserer Zucht in den Handel gelangen, um so die Naturentnahmen und Wildfänge zu reduzieren, werden separiert und artgerecht gehalten. Ein Import wird hinfällig.
Zuchttiere und Korallenstöcke werden vorwiegend aus inländischen Hälterungen erworben und zur Zucht / Vermehrung gepflegt.
In sämtlichen Anlagen werden Fische benötigt um die ökologischen Prozesse in Gang zu halten. Jedoch können einzelne Fische nur in dafür vorgesehenen Anlagen vergesellschaftet werden.
Die Kosten hängen von verschiedenen Faktoren ab, weshalb dieser Betrag individuell für die erwähnten Posten zur Verfügung steht.
The SPS system (SPS = small polyp stoney coral) for small polyp stony corals makes high demands on water quality and nutrients. Therefore also the filter systems will have a high quality standard. In addition, the plant will need sufficient space for rearing.
The LPS (Large polyp stoney coral), i.e. large polyp stony corals usually prefer slightly different conditions, which is why the plants run separately.
Here animals are presented and bred species-appropriate.
No animals are kept in this facility. In the eco-basin "the oceans of the future" are recreated with increased temperatures and overgrown sediments.
Seminar hardware, training material, billboards etc.
In the laboratory plankton and other food is bred and water analyses are carried out. For this purpose small tanks and containers and few laboratory equipment are needed. Also the water treatment takes place here.
A quarantine is used to acclimatize and monitor animals before they are moved to the theme pools. For this purpose, pools are required which also allow individual measures to be taken. Only flawless and healthy animals are placed in the "large facilities".
Animals that are traded from our breeding in order to reduce the amount of natural extractions and wild catches are separated and kept in a species-appropriate way. An import becomes void.
Breeding animals and coral stocks are mainly acquired from domestic cages and are kept for breeding / reproduction.
Fish are needed in all plants to keep the ecological processes going. However, individual fish can only be socialized in designated facilities.
The costs depend on various factors, which is why this amount is available individually for the items mentioned.
TRITON continues to lead the aquarium biochemistry industry and knowledge based husbandry using information derived from scientific work and the most modern technology. With the establishment of our laboratory and research department at the Great Barrier Reef in Cairns Australia, we are in a unique position!
Tropic Marin, for a more beautiful life under water
Only those who know how the animals live, how their habitats function and how the ecological processes take place will understand why the most important nature reserves need to be protected. With our project we want to draw attention to this problem in inland Switzerland. Climate change, sea level rise, earth and ocean warming, coral bleaching and coral death concerns us ALL!
To achieve an impressive and lasting sensitization, real habitats for demonstration purposes are required. In addition, local breeding of marine creatures can reduce the natural extraction of fish, corals and seahorses and the import of these animals and thus the pressure on the entire ecosystem. In this way, scientifically useful knowledge is also gained, which benefits the protection of nature and species.
The professional demonstration and breeding facilities, which are constructed in accordance with all national and international laws (protection of species, Code of Ethics and Animal Welfare of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums WAZA), are made accessible to the public in order to create an impressive and economically viable offer. In this way, training courses can be offered in a manner appropriate to the target group and a sustainable effect can be achieved.
The total project costs for the facilities amount to at least 200'000 CHF.
The association would like to realize this project and is dependent on your financial support. The construction and maintenance is done by members of the association on a voluntary basis until the project is self-sustaining. Through patronage, private or legal persons can support the project by contributing to the association's account (IBAN: CH31 0686 6595 0931 7783 1). Our patrons are distinguished into the following categories;
and, in accordance with our marketing concept, presented in a highly visible manner on the social media platforms and in the Aqua Center. Of course, patrons can also remain anonymous. If the project is not realized by the end of 2021, the donations will be returned immediately.
Contractors or suppliers who support us through services, installations or by providing material (products / accessories) are divided into the same categories and are also owed at the different locations.
The marine biology, the water chemistry and technology fascinates and inspires us as Coral lovers at the same time. Deepened knowledge but increased our discomfort in terms of our environment and especially with regard to our underwater ecology.
(only) the rainforests (land biosphere) and the atmosphere absorbs what the human being greenhouse gas released, but in particular the oceans with their algae and "corals" are for the absorption of CO2 and release of Oxygen O2 responsible! The role of our Oceane as the largest CO2 - storage is only really known to a few people.
is the starting point of our project "CORALLIUM LIFE". We give the broad population insights into the underwater world (SHOW) and create thus knowledge (KNOW), in order to finally ensure the protection of the Oceane from Switzerland and to promote our questioning behavior (ACT). We achieve this goal with the striking demonstration of functioning and non-functional ecosystems.
Our plants are built with a demonstration tank (natural habitat), a technical tank (for filter media/ skimmers etc.) and a settling tank (young corals and fragments) in a water circuit. In cooperation with our partners, water analyses are carried out and the results are processed using the knowledge and experience gained from our facilities.
