Thought you would like to see some pics of the "Behind the scenes" tour that the Durban Reef Club had at Ushaka Marine world in Durban, South Africa last year.

This was one of their big hospital tanks, this one housed a turtle with an injured flipper.

First pic shows some of the Durban Reef Club Boys
