Places To Discover –
Discover a magical underwater world with over 5,000 impressive sea inhabitants in 17 different themes. Experience the largest, freestanding cylindrical aquarium in the world: the AquaDom. It is 25 meters high, total weight of 2000 tones, 12 meters diameter, over 1 million liters of water, more than 1,500 fish from about 97 different species. Be as close to our inhabitants without getting wet as you can, in the aquarium tunnel you feel like under water.
You can discover the divers feeding the fishes in the spectacular AquaDom daily. The feeding of the fish and the cleaning of the fish tank is performed daily by 3-4 divers. The fish need 8 kg (18 lb) of fish food.
You can see this creature at Aquadom. Its body is yellowish-brown colored and has a special pattern. With their chest and back fins, the relatives of the seahorses can move almost without weight in all directions. Since these underwater creatures live exclusively in the sea grass and tangies of the coast of South Australia, they are so perfectly camouflaged. You have to look very carefully, so as not to consider them algae bushes. This protects the Seedrachen from their enemies.
