Starting the Zebrafish Breed

Zebrafishes are a valuable animal model for all different human diseases. We plan to use zebrafish as a model for congenital heart disease and atherosclerosis. However, establishing a zebrafish platform will take a while.

Here you can see an developing zebrafish. Its transparency makes it so interesting for the researchers. 
After having my fish tank installed last week, I yesterday tested the quality of my water and finally got my first zebrafishs to start my breed.

Three girls and two boys are now discovering their new 60-litre-tank. Unfortunately they're not yet fully pubescent, so I have to wait for the first eggs for some time.
