Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.

The music is “Please Don’t Go” by Barcelona. Buy this song on the iTunes store.

This was shot using a Canon 5DMKII with a 28-135mm lens.

    Nice to watch indeed…
    But the fishes and the whales must feel like being stuck in one appartment for their whole life.
    Better go scuba diving, this is a way better experience with a lot more impressions!
