That's very true! I love aquariums but I've never seen any aquarium that matches the majesty of Shark's Cove or any of the reefs near the sand bar in K-bay. It's one thing to watch corals and anemones and even the shrimp and fish, but to watch live as a grouper and tuna dart in and eat 'em right in front of your face, or watch an 8' hammerhead brush past you- now that's something no glass box can contain!
Have you ever seen the Tennessee Aquarium? For a fish hobbyist, that is the best public aquarium on the planet that I know of. They have massive FW displays of every biotype on earth, including a small school of Congo Tetras that I donated to them back in the day (I'm proud of that!), and from the SW side of the house, they were the first to breed Seadragons in captivity. The GA Aquarium and several other leading national Aquariums carry the offspring. It's in Chattanooga and totally worth the trip if you are ever close by. The Jack Daniel's distillery isn't too far away, either!
