El paso zoo fish

So today I went to the El Paso zoo, and I realized just go big of a tank some fish need, there was a 700 gallon tank filled with about 12 red bellies piranhas, not sure if it was 700 gallons, it was probably more, but it was about 12-14 feet long by 8 feet tall and about 10 feet deep, very cool, don't have a picture of it though, there was also a 500 gallon half circle tank that was filled with blak skirt tetras, neon tetras, buenos aires tetras, rummy nose tetras, and one foot long common pleco
The biggest tank had to be about 12 feet long, 10 feet tall, and 10 feet deep, it had a silver arowana that was nearing 3.5 feet, a full grown Motoro stingray, a black swawtooth catfish that was 4 feet long, about 4 green severums, and 2 2 foot long common plecos, it was Amazing! I wish to one day have a tank that long, I don't have the best pics, but it was very cool

While you're in Texas go to the fort worth zoo. They have an amazing aquarium. They have full grown Bala sharks and other just amazing fish they have an almost full grown Jardini arowana and two of those real big red arowanas. In the tank with the Jardini they have HUGE boesmani rainbow fish too. They're pretty amazing because they're not supposed to be that big lol. I think there's also an Iran rainbow in with em too but I haven't been in a while. It's really worth checkin out if you've got the time

Wow really, well sadly El Paso is about 12 hours from forth worth, I have to travel to the other side of Texas to get there, but if I do go there, I'm sure that I'll go there, how much does it cost to go there?

The Waikiki aquarium here has an amazing estuary setup. There are archer fish, Bangaii cardinals, monos, and so many other cool fish

Oh yeah forgot about the archer fish, gots those too. But I think it's $12 per person, yeah somewhere around that. Ohh Texas love it or leave it. That's sad when it takes longer to travel along one state than it does to go up four states!..........and then there's Alaska..........
