I took the family to see the Mouse in Orlando and decided to drive up to Atlanta to visit the Georgia Aquarium.
My little 3 yr old girl loves sharks of any sort and of course the Georgia Aquarium now had 3 whale sharks (1 recently died).
Needless to say, Saturday was a bad day of the week to go. It was extremely crowded. You couldn't come within viewing distance of some of the smaller specialty tanks. I was somewhat disappointed with the lack of views on the massive tank that houses the whale sharks.
The best part of the aquarium is the reef tank. It is 160,000 gallons; however, most of it is not viewable because the back side of the reef is not open to the public. It is my understanding that the backside has mangroves growing for filtration and as a nursery/grow out area for the smaller fish.
Included is a couple of pictures. Can add more if anyone is interested.
