Worlds Largest Freshwater Aqaurium

Do you remember as a kid having a fish aquarium? I do, my aquarium was 10 gallons and stocked with guppies and gold fish, boy do I mean guppies.They could reproduce like rabbits, first two then 30 in just a few days. 
Recently our family visited a really big Aquarium, The Tennessee Aquarium, actually two aquariums, freshwater and saltwater.
This is no kid aquarium, its gimongus. The freshwater aquarium is the largest freshwater aquarium in the world. The best way to describe it “walls of fish.”
You walk along walkways next to the 30-50 ft tall aquarium wall. The walkway slowly slopes down until you are on the bottom, great for viewing fish. There are other sections that feature hands on exhibits like the butterfly garden.
Looks like a freshwater Dory from the movie Finding Nemo? We saw sharks, grouper, jelly fish penguins etc…. This aquarium has a wonderful layout that’s easy to follow and helps naturally control congestion.
The water is so clear, the fish look like they are in high definition.
I will finish this post with a picture of rainbow trout. If you are ever in Chattanooga Tn, then visit the Tennessee Aquarium, it will be well worth the trip. Remember: Life's to short, get away from the big screen and get on a big stream.
