I thought about this now for some time and decided to ask all members which is/are fortunate enough to stay close to an Oceanarium to maybe post pics of some of the tanks as well as their livestock. Have only been in 01 many moons ago. Friends of mine was in Capetown during the festive season and said the one in Capetown is beautiful, especially the one with all the corals etc.

So please guys and gals, if you fortunate enough to live close to a Public Aquarium, please share some pics with us. It would be interesting to see how many (big or small) of these places are around.....

Talking about those big ones you walking in where you only pay for an entrance fee. At this stage mine is costing me big time for the "public"- No entrance fees, depletion of Windhoek Lager Stock and the Brandy and Rum is also on the endangered list as we speak. Eish, can just not win.....

Ok, here's some pics from uShaka Marine World.

For some reason I don't have any pics of their coral tank, dunno why :(

Millepora found it very hard to concentrate on what was in the tanks :p

Hi guys - I will try and convince my wife that we should actually go INSIDE the aquarium for a change, when we go and fetch water ;-)
and then I will take some pics of the reef aquarium for you, Sean....

There is ONLY ONE reef aquarium - the other tropical marine tanks are species tanks (one tank for NEMO's), another for eals, etc., etc...
The rest of the tanks on the INSIDE are mostly cold water tanks (temperate water).
