How many gallons is it? If you ever get a chance to go to the Bahamas, you absolutely must go to Atlantis. The largest aquarium on earth, next to the ocean of course. It's fed with water straight from the ocean itself and has a staff of 60+ people just to maintain it. I think it's around 11 million gallons if I remember correctly. Pretty awesome.

Atlanta, GA I assume.

The Oklahoma City aquarium is the biggest in the US, so I doubt that Atlanta is the biggest in the world.
