Throughout the film, there is an aquarium with fish on Mister Rogers’ set. A twenty gallon fish tank was used with a fifty gallon filter. Both a normal filter and an underground gravel filter were in place. Fish were maintained on set for the entire week of the shoot, to limit the least amount of stress. The water and fish were checked throughout the day.
