Rainbow ReefRainbow Reef

Marvel at the fascinating behaviors of nearly 150 species of fish and coral in Rainbow Reef. This 1,700-gallon coral reef aquarium—one of the biggest in the Northeast—features a large and low viewing surface that provides even the littlest Nemo watchers an amazing view of brilliantly colored fish, corals, anemones, shrimp, eel, and crab.

A multimedia presentation adjacent to the tank helps guests identify the various types of fish introduced into the miniature ecosystem.
