"Corals", "Sea anemones", "Sea urchins", "Starfishes", "Interesting Ecology of Marine Life", "Crustacea", "Symbiotic Life of Little Animals", and "Sea Turtle park".  Some highlights of the aquarium are an Underwater Tunnel and Sea Turtle Pool.  

The Underwater Tunnel is 24 meters long and has sharks, rays and bluefin tuna swimming freely together.  Seeing these impressive sea creatures from the side and below is a immersive unique experience.
