SIMPSON – The Simpson College Student Government Association (SGA) has completed a project to install a grate on the stairs in Dunn Library to protect the fish living beneath it.
In previous years the fish have been harmed and killed by dirt, sand, and salt tracked in by shoes and dropped into the pond from the stairwell. It is expensive to replace the fish and clean their enclosure.
In order to save the twelve fish living in the pond, the SGA spent $1340 to create a barrier prevent falling debris. This will protect the filtration system and keep the fish happy and healthy.
