They have at the University among other things the most advanced technology in filter systems and a 24-hour water flow in and out of each one of the aquariums – individually.

And Professor Chen’s students have – each one on his own – a separate section and computer to study. It is an amazing University and I only wish there were more like this around the world to make it a better world. Congratulations Professor Chen and thank you all for having me and for all your help specially Pan Hongyu, (the tetra man), Hu Caixia (the goldfish specialist), Yuan Gen Jur (the seahorse breeder), Zhang Cheng Yi (the discus specialist) and Sun Jiie.
