Marine Animal Isolation Device / M.A.I.D.

This larger isolation device is ideal for the quarantine procedure of larger marine animals such as pregnant sharks, and/or keeping new stock in a separate area before release into the tank.

This version features panels that can be taken out individually. We incorporated this feature to assist when training animals to enter the device. The flexible entrance size can help build confidence in the animal and then reduced and eventually closed behind them. It also means that a damaged panel can easily be replaced.

Features:

Square or Rectangle frame design.
Heavy duty panels are made of heavy duty mesh.
Mesh panels, measuring 180 x 120cm.
Removable panels.
Panels feature eyelets to accomodate secure fastening with bungee cords.
Exterior seams to ensure a smooth and safe inside for the fish.
Thick panels of velcro on each side to connect panels together securely.
15cm wide band of Velcro backed with PVC to cover and connect the front and rear panels.
Zipper fitted on one panel to accommodate letting marine animals enter and leave the device easily.

The Deep has used the Marine Animal Isolation Device (MAID) to successfully isolate and re-introduce animals following treatment regimes, to grow on juvenile animals till their release and have established the MAID as an isolated feeding zone for our turtles.

It has proved to be a worthy investment for The Deep in the care of our animals.

“We are happy to inform you that having female blacktip reef sharks give birth in a separation pen (MAID) has been shown to significantly increase the survival of new-born pups compared to allowing mothers to give birth in an exhibit surrounded by predators."

We’ve just used our mini MAID for the first batch introduction of fish to our main tank, worked a treat! It’s easy to assemble and disassemble, and move about in and out of the water.

The mesh is strong enough to add some hiding spots and cope well with the flow. The addition of the Velcro lid means we can suspend it anywhere in the tank. Big thanks to Clem for sorting these modifications out for us!
