VIDEO: 65,000 L Reef Tank Tour!
23 Jul, 2021
Nearly as large as the iconic 20,000-gallon reef exhibit at the Long Island Aquarium, this incredible 17,171-gallon (65,000-liter) reef aquarium is part of the Darwineum at Zoo Rostock. (Rostock is a port city on the Baltic Sea in northeastern Germany.) The building, officially opened in 2012, was designed to “guide visitors through the different geological eras, and in a vivid way show how life on the earth evolved.”
The reef aquarium featured mostly live rock and small corals in 2013, but by 2017 had grown in spectacular fashion. Now, in 2021, viewers are treated to an exclusive look at the reef and other off-exhibit portions of the Zoo, such as the dedicated jellyfish breeding operation.
Host Tobias Neyer promises more extensive content from the Zoo in the future; this is just the first look!
