Wow. That is huge. I had to do a double take. I thought, wait, are those people standing in front of that?

And what are those gigantic fish in that very first picture?

Are you taking about the whale shark? Its huge! Can get over 14 metres (46 ft) long and can weigh at least 30 tonnes (66,000 lb).
I would love to go see this aquarium. I couldn't tell you even half of the species in these pictures

I would like to add that I was wrong on it being the second largest. The Dubai Mall Aquarium is the second largest holding 2,640,000 million gallons
And the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium holds 1,981,000 gallons, making it the third largest in the world.
But regardless its still amazing

My Dad was stationed on Okinawa while in the Air Force and told me stories of this place. It's cool to actually see pictures!
