A lonely turtle inside the main tank. They should give it a partner instead of letting the turtle live alone inside the tank with all the fish

The Aquarium is a good place for family outing. While the place is not big, being a research centre itself is appealing. It’s good to see much have been carried out by local university on the research and preservation of marine lives.
