This is Unacceptable and happened at our NLB

Recommended Posts

Bino, imagine if you have mentioned "Instead of killing corals, I am actually growing them." :upsidedown:

Quote from a famous government agency that shalt not be named: "Huh? Corals can grow one meh?"

it was reported in the Straits Times if i remembered correctly...

Aiyah! Forgot to add one killer line in the email I sent: If this is a graded project I hope the students responsible FAIL it, as they have clearly shown that they have absolutely no knowledge on the subject.

BTW FuEl, you stay the closest to that NLB branch right? Maybe you can be the on site MASS correspondent hahaha.

Thanks guys for the support.

I will visit NLB tonight again. If you guys can go and see, I don't think they can remove the tank today.

Cheers for all the supporter of Marine Life!!!

Not exactly beside parkway parade, but pretty close, along the road. Should be first level lobby.

Hi guys,

Just to update, SPCA dropped a comment on the Facebook's wall and request me to contact them. I called this morning and they said they are sending their people down to investigate.

O great!... :)

if a public organisation wants to let the public learn about marine biology or watever biology, it is common sense they ensured that the set-up is either done professionally or the institution responsible for the project has proper guidance....and not suka suka just do for the sake of doing it...

Want to do, do a good one...since our garmen thru NS have been emphasizing this...they should lead by example...

Kudos to you for your zest to pursue this matter...most of us including myself may not be bothered..haha..

then tell them cut cost for canteen food. feed the students beans and rice. more nutritious and can survive also.

due to limited budget, we can only provide the basic peasent food to keep the students alive.

Waiting to see if new paper picks up on the story. They seem to like this kind of stories, especially for Monday's edition which is usually a slow news day.

basic equipment..

go iwarna buy top up water $1 change everyday, this kind of thing wont happen. [ so cheap ]

might be caused by coral which caused the water to be milky.

this is caused by irresponsible student :angry2:

Nothing to do with budget, simple tanks like the one set up in the NLB can be done with limited funds. If they had read up on marine aquarium keeping before even setting up a tank, they could have even got by with a cheap air-stone skimmer and basic understanding of biological filtration and basic husbandry practices.

Something is wrong with the quality of english by Ms Yip. Heard that they hired honours grads for the NLB staffs.

I wonder how will spca handle this matter...

then they will tell u..the project is only meant for a week n if our school purchase these equipments, we will not know wat to do with them after the project has completed and we do not wish to waste school committee funds on these equipments for a one week project. then the teacher will tell u, based on our initial research...as this project is only meant for a week, we were told there's no need for skimmer and so long there is a pump to supply oxygen will do...we appreciate the concern of the public and we will remove the tank and return release the livestocks...but [email protected]#!!%@%!! get a life! and we'll talk behind if you are not happy...up your [email protected]!!#

I just believe they never go into research before setting up the tank.. A simple tank can be setup with less than $100... And doing doing regular water change..

Sorry bro, off topic but what's wrong with the word? As much as I like to bash the public service, I don't see anything wrong with the usage of the word here.

Edited to add in the quote haha paiseh. Revert means to come back. In that context, if you replace the word it says "we will come back to you soon."

Sounds correct to me. Sorry for the OT :P
