Fish can get sick

Fish can get sick too!

Do you have a dream of becoming a veterinarian? Do you need to learn about aquarium career for a school assignment, or are you interested in a job in the animal care field?

Indiana Fun World will provide a series of classes shadowing our fish experts at our aquarium.

We will provide 6 unique 3-hour classes. 

Our shadow job classes will give you the inside scoop on a career in marine biology. Take the entire series, or just pick one.

Job shadow Classes are led by Aquarium Educators and include opportunities to interact with staff.


This job shadow class takes you deeper into the challenging field of marine animal veterinary science.

During this 3-hour class participants will:

  • Hear from our veterinary staff about what it takes to do their job.
  • What does it take to become a veterinarian.
  • Learn more about life support systems.
  • Visit various behind-the-scenes locations.
  • How to feed and care for sick fish.
  • Diagnose and treat a “sick” stuffed animal much like our veterinarian would.
  • Go to check on a range of animals that are under the veterinarian’s care.

Other activities may include:

  • Tour our veterinarian facility.
  • Observe our veterinary staff perform a procedure on an animal.
  • Learn how we treat marine life.
  • Marine life vitamins and medicine.

The Aquarium reserves the right to change the animal interactions without notice due to animal safety, exhibit maintenance, or animal health reasons.
