Wonders of the deep

The Yomiuri Shimbun

A new exhibit featuring corals and tropical fish appears to captivate visitors at Tokyo Sea Life Park in Edogawa Ward, Tokyo, on Thursday. About 2.5 meters deep and covering an area of 12 by 6.5 meters, the tank includes seven species of corals and more than 200 tropical fish, including blue green damselfish, which are mainly found in waters around the Nansei Island chain. “It was as if I was looking into the sea. It was so beautiful,” said Chihiro Toyokawa, a fifth-grade elementary school student who was visiting the aquarium with her family. “It will be one of the first happy memories of my summer vacation.”
