The Kuroshio Sea



The second largest aquarium in the world. I don't care much for the song but the video is excellent

And with Whale sharks in a tank!

I'd love to see it, even though I feel sorry for the sharks

Is this for real? That piece of glas would be over 7m high and 12m wide. (Based on the guy waving his hands being ca. 2m). Think of the strain :-o

The main tank called the 'Kuroshio Sea' holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world's second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.
