    Just come back from a holiday in Majorca. Last Wednesday we went to Palma aquarium which i believe is quite new. It seemed like a great place and the fish looked quite healthy apart from one single ray which had it’s tail bitten/cut? off and his other fins looked like they were rotting away. Fin rot maybe?

    The whole place was interactive and you could touch the animals (If it was a pond style display) as long as “You don’t squeeze or lift the animals out of water”. Recipe for disaster in my opinion.

    There were 55 tanks including the shark tank which holds 3.5 million gallons i believe.

    Anyway i took a few photos (Well hundreds actually) but because flash was not permitted and the lighting was different in each tank meaning i couldn’t change settings for each tank in time so everything is on auto. These are the photos that turned out ok.

    First display contained some gobbies and these

    Lighting made this look fabulous.

    The name of this fish escapes me,

    Moray eel,

    Lion fish,

    Another moray eel (There were three or four tanks containing morays)

    ET?

    😀 What is that? It hoped around the tank and was very friendly (So was the porcupine puffer in the tank)

    Cardinal fish

    Just look at the wounds and scars of what puffers can do to each other,

    Hawkfish, dunno which species.

    This fish looks like it has a deformed lip?

    One of three koi ponds,

    Outdoor salt water display,

    Turtle tank/pond

    Another koi pond, feeding time,

    Look at all the fry, the fish must be well fed,

    Geophagus sp (Dunc?)

    Heros sp. ‘rotkeil’ me thinks?

    A couple of reptiles in the jungle display,

    The only picture of the shark which wasn’t completely useless. By this time we didn’t have long to get back to the coach and i was started to feel a bit sick as i hadn’t much drunk much

    Jelly fish,

    Hope you enjoyed.

    Well worth a visit if you over there.

    I did thanks Matt.

    The aquarium was the highlight (Seen as all other days were spent round the pool!) but we only had about 3 hours in there; no where near enough.
