Atlantic Coral Reef
Hundreds of colorful tropical fish swim and school on an authentic fabricated reef in this 335,000-gallon, 13-foot-deep exhibit. More than 500 exotic fish surround visitors as they descend through the exhibit. Divers feed the reef’s fish several times each day.
Animals in This Exhibit
While many of our visitors point and declare “hammerhead!” when they see this shark cruising through the exhibit, the bonnethead shark is easily distinguished from its much larger cousin.
The green moray is actually brown! The yellow tint of the mucus that covers its body, in combination with the drab background color, gives the fish its namesake green appearance.
Like most pufferfish, the spotfin porcupinefish can draw in water to inflate itself. When it does, sharp spines on its body stick out, which is how it got its name.
