The Newport Aquarium has a new immersive experience: a coral reef tunnel.
Over 50 colorful species will be swimming throughout the 60,000-gallon tank that makes up the new tunnel. Guests can walk through for 360-degree views and see inhabitants of the coral reef, including some baby angelfish, different pufferfish species and even a mystic-looking Bluespine unicornfish (so named for the horn-like protrusion on its forehead).“We’re always proud to bring something new and improved to the region,” said Newport Aquarium’s executive director Rebecca Foster in a release. “This is the spectacular coral reef that Cincy deserves and it’s also a great chance for us to educate the community about the importance and plight of coral reefs in the wild.”
