A 260,000-gallon coral reef exhibit, which aquarium officials promise will make visitors feel as though they are inside an actual reef, is scheduled for a July 10 opening.
The new blacktip reef habitat, a re-creation of an Indo-Pacific reef that replaces the popular “Wings in the Water” exhibit, will include a school of sleek and fast-moving wingtip sharks. Also included in the $12.5 million exhibit will be 15 other marine species and more than 60 varieties of fish.
