Why use the zebrafish
Since the 1960s, the zebrafish (Danio rerio) has become increasingly important to scientific research. It has many characteristics that make it a valuable model for studying human genetics and disease.
The zebrafish is small and robust. They are cheaper to maintain than mice.
Zebrafish produce hundreds of offspring at weekly intervals providing scientists with an ample supply of embryos.
Zebrafish embryos are nearly transparent which allows researchers to easily examine the development of internal structures.
Zebrafish have a similar genetic structure to humans. They share 70 per cent of genes with us.
Break of daylight triggers mating in zebrafish (many other fish only lay eggs in the dark).
As a vertebrate, the zebrafish has the same major organs and tissues as humans. Their muscle, blood, kidney and eyes share many features with human systems.
The zebrafish genome has been fully sequenced to a very high quality. This has enabled scientists to create mutations in more than 14,000 genes to study their function.
Zebrafish have the unique ability to repair heart muscle. For example, if part of their heart is removed they can grow it back in a matter of weeks.

Zebrafish Feeders ZF ONE
The ZF ONE Zebrafish Feeder is a new smaller model with one fine dose setting. The preset feed range is ideal for 1-2 adult fish and larval tanks. Our feeders were specifically designed to accurately dispense the sensitive Gemma 300 feed and work with many other dry feeds in the 100-500 micron range.
Zebrafish Feeder ZF TWO
The UPDATED ZF TWO Zebrafish Feeder is the successor to the ZF3 model. The two, new preset feed ranges for 10 fish and 20 fish give husbandry staff the speed and control to accurately feed any size fish room.
Our feeders were specifically designed to accurately dispense the sensitive Gemma 300 feed and works with many other dry feeds in the 100-500 micron range.
- 6061 Anodized Aluminum Construction
- 120 mL Capacity
- 2 Preset Dose Settings
Zebrafish Feeder ZF TWO Upgrade
Upgrade first gen ZF2 (pre-April 2019) and older ZF3 feeder models to the new ZF2 spec! This revision dispenses dry diets more accurately and provides a true, two-stop functionality. Each section feeds 10 adult fish for a total volume equal to the older feeders.
