Landlubbers see the Sea
Spring Festival saw the launch of southwest China’s new “Cube Oceanarium” designed by Australian company Advanced Aquarium Technologies. The 10,000,000 litre exhibition tank has a 40 metre by 8 metre aquarium window which looks over shoppers at Chengdu’s “Seaside City” shopping mall. Huge crowds from landlocked Sichuan enjoyed the more than 10,000 different marine species on display over the Chinese New Year (pictured).
The aquarium window has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as both the largest acrylic window and the largest aquarium window in the world. Advanced Aquarium Technologies designed, built, and installed the aquarium, including the massive acrylic viewing panels and specialist lighting. Learn more
