More filters and holding tanks. In the holding tanks they had concrete coral. Apparently we can grow coral better than they can. In the "lab", they had every kind of light you can image. They were testing to see which one did the best. Even had natural light tanks. I told them I had LEDs and they freaked. I told them I would bring them some of my coral and they were very interested. Not sure why but they were. Everything had to be captive grown or aquacultured. They take nothing from the ocean unless it is hurt.

BTW. You think they have a lot of employees out front, you should see the back end. I could not believe the man power.

I was thinking. Why wouldn't they let me take pics in lab? It was not something we hadn't seen. I mean, is ocean world out to get their secrets.

Could be because of proprietary information (policies and procedures for caring for the animals). I can think of a bunch of other reasons but that is usually the biggest reason for not allowing pictures.

Thanks for posting the pictures! I love behind the scenes tours. I think I need to go back to the Zoo, it has been 5+ years since I have been there.

I bet your right. I wanted to learn about their filtration and they wouldn't say a word. I am going to the new Dallas aquarium in a couple weeks. I have called 3 times trying to get back stage. You never know unless you ask. I may have to stretch truth to get there but I like looking at the filters and back care.

I tried to talk my way into the back of dallas aquarium. Waiting for the boss man to call me. I told them I went back stage at sea world and took some pics and wanted them to see. They thought that would be interesting. I also will make a donation if I have to. But will wait for that.
