October is their peak season, so we have to book our schedule with them at an opportune time.
We can coordinate feeding time with the aquarium in a way that we may control the movement of the fishes in response to their feeding pattern.
There is a good working space outside the aquarium, from the surface of the water, but any equipment, rigging requirements needs to be further assessed.
