It’s been a long time coming but finally the new shark tank is up and running at Majestic Aquariums!
If you been down to the store in recent weeks you would have seen the tank filled with fish (and possibly a mermaid!) but now it is home to our new white tip reef shark Snowy.
Like any aquarium enthusiast will know, these things don’t happen overnight. It’s taken 14 months from the planning stage to get to where we are today! The 20,000L aquarium was partially constructed offsite before the final touches were and the tank was completed onsite. The aquarium is carefully monitored by the staff here at Majestic and even involves a weekly swim to ensure that the tank is kept clean.
Currently the shark tank is home to Snowy the White Tip, 3 Epaulette sharks, 1 Blue Spot Stingray, a Rat Ray, a Zebra eel and many fish that remain in the tank. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of 2 Black Tip Reef Sharks which unlike Snowy the White tip are a free swimming species meaning they will be extremely active throughout the day giving customers and children a great viewing experience.
We hope having this shark tank will give customers and children an opportunity to educate, view and appreciate sharks for the beautiful misunderstood creatures they are. In the not too distant future we plan to re-introduce shark feeding which will give children the opportunity to demonstrate their bravery and feed these magnificent animals.
