    Hey guys, I'm back from my Dubai Holiday and just could not resist sharing some of the pics I took of the Dubai Mall Reef Aquarium with my phone. Total volume is 11000000 litres (yes that right 6 zero's:eek:). Pics just dont do this system jutice. I did a behind the scenes tour, but pics were not allowed there for some reason.

    These guys only change 10% of the total water volume in a month. Thats still 1million litres though:eek:

    So here are some of the pics, Its so big that I had to go up to the 2nd floor to try and get full tank shots

    I'm busy uploading a video I took to YouTube, but its taking too long to upload (need to get some sleep now, Jet lag and all). I also visited the Lost Chamber Aquarium on Palm Island and have a few pics of that reef tank as well. Will post both the vid and the extra pics 2morrow

    I must also upload some as well. We stayed at Atlantis and the balcony looked over the big tank of the Lost Chambers. That place is just too beautiful.
