Hello Guys,

Its located at the serene river bank of the great Rhine..
Image

This one is quite smaller than the other Sea Life centers..
Image

Image

Image

Biggest and ugliest Rockfish I have ever seen.. size of almost twice of a football
Image

Through the magnifying viewing window
Image

Big goatfishes
Image

Some basslets
Image

Find the puffer
Image

Image

Brother of Paul baba
Image

Some kelp biotope
Image

Can anyone ID this fish?
Image

Has to be some turtles
Image

Biggest tank..
Image

Image

Ozelots
Image

Sat there for an hour
Image

Skyscaping
Image

This fat guy was so bored
Image

They are everywhere
Image

Image

Some of the control equipments
Image

This guy was 8 feet long.. just sat there on the bed and breathing like an old man... must weigh over 500kg
Image

One huge ugly crab with loooong legs
Image

Some of the shells on display
Image

Jellyfishes.. a must
Image

A huge trigger .. lurking in the dark

Thats all for now.. Took all the pics using mobile fone and no flashes were allowed so couldnt take pics of some very interesting items.. But I was disappointed not seeing sharks, dolphins and penguins.. someday!!!

This is awesome. Lucky you Mithun. thats a really rare sight, rarer than sharks or anything else! How big was it? gets as big as 5m, yes sir, 16ft.

Its Sturgeon... looks like a common sturgeon
a prehistoric monster, a true coldwater fish. one of the largest fresh water fish. the yummmmmmmmmmmm caviar fish.

@Amit,

I had no idea of the unknown fishes I saw there.. all labels were in German.. therefore only guesswork on those ones... That fish was about 4 foot i guess
