The Kelp Forest Exhibit contains 800 000 litres of seawater. The tank it is housed in is 12m x 12m x 6m deep and the water temperature is between 12 and 15º C. The windows are made of acrylic (a type of plastic) and are about 180mm thick. This evocative photo, courtesy EltonHarding, was taken with a cellphone camera!
