Andrew, you know I tell you this every time I see you, but the Freshwater Gallery is looking AMAZING these days! It's a privilege to be able to see these tanks in person any time I want.
I wonder what tank you'll post about next. . . I can't wait!

|Storm||This is really amazing. My family went to visit Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT recently, and I couldn't help but wonder why they don't have real plants in any tank. They did have a decent Cichlid tank, but I couldn't help but think that an Amano style tank would be awesome in a public Aquarium. It's too bad nobody does it - I guess Amano tanks are not "real biotopes." I think it would be amazing, however, and would look at least as good as the fake reef tanks do. Admittedly, their reef tanks are pretty nice, but I tire of seeing fake coral inserts and would rather see real plants any day.|

The exhibit is a 12'x 8'x 8' fiberglass tank with a 12x6 viewing window.
The tank as is contains 3600 gallons of water.
This exhibit is located at the New England Aquarium in Boston. I'm an aquarist in the freshwater gallery.

|driftwoodhunter||Amazing! I grew up in Old Lyme, Ct, at the mouth of the Ct. river - I just had to check this out. So glad I did! Are you building these displays for public buildings?|

|akdylpickles||Wow beautiful tank!|

Very nice, could've fooled me as a tropical biotope. Looks like museum quality too, nice job. How much of the 3100 gallons is actual water?
Hope the maintenance isn't too much. Looking forward to seeing more.

Thats awesome. What a good idea and the layout is like something you see at a public aquarium. Well done. I grew up in Connecticut so I had to check out this tank.
I have been thinking of doing a native tank next I would not need any heaters in fact I might need a chiller.
Wait how big is the tank? 3100 gal??

That's basically my native dream tank.... So, did you catch all of them?
