Aquarists have an extremely varied set of responsibilities, and therefore need an equally diverse range of knowledge and skills to do their jobs. With a job that includes tasks as distinct as maintaining proper lighting in an exhibit, diagnosing animal health, maintaining water quality, and building exhibits, aquarists must be comfortable using a wide range of tools. The list of equipment aquarists typically use includes: hand and power tools, ladders, and scaffolding; hazardous chemicals, epoxies, and glues; first aid equipment; fishing equipment and collection gear; plumbing equipment, lighting equipment, and pressure sprayers; and life support equipment.
 
 
Basic courses required or desired for aquarists include first aid, technical and/or scientific writing, plumbing, CPR, and computer programming. They also include ecology, genetics, ichthyology, botany, aquaculture, and chemistry.
