Welcome to GTA Aquaria.
I changed your thumbs down to a question mark since that was your intention originally.

I know the Engineering department (water treatment section??) of UofT, will be getting a large 280 gallon reef soon. They are just waiting for the construction to be finished or something.

They are going to have everything exposed so people will know what does what. It should be pretty cool!

One of the profs studies hermit crabs, but he is in the very late stages of retiring, and Claire Healy studies inverts, but concentrates on worms living in the intestines of sharks and rays.
Much to my dismay, no one doing any reef ecology.
Good luck.
There is space for two more aquariums in the lobby of Ramsay Wright, they were all empty (3) for the longest time...
Isn't there some prof that studies tridacnid clams since they never get cancer?

Sounds like fun if I weren't trying so hard to be done with my PhD, it's sounds like it could be a lot of fun!

I think I was the only person that kept a ribbon eel on residence throughout my undergrad years. Good luck with your club.

This sounds amazing. Thanks for the reply. I'll have to look into who's taking care of the tank on campus; maybe we could help out with that.

Dr. Hernan Lopez- Fernandez, curator of Ichthyology at the ROM is also an Assistant Professor at U of T. He has at least a couple of prepared presentations, which he has given to our club. He is a very interesting speaker.

I think I am the one who is supposed to be maintaining it but nothing has been finalized yet. The tank has been sitting at The Coral Reef Shop for 4 months now, were just waiting to set up the delivery date with them. Hopefully its before Christmas lol. Well see what happens.
