As said above, there is no comparison between the places. If you have never been to an aquarium of this kind it's worth the trip. Very pretty, very relaxing, it was for us anyway. We took the excursion and when that was over with the took our time and wondered back through the whole thing all over again by ourselves. It's just kind of calming to watch the fish swim so gracefully around. They say watching fish swim lowers your blood pressure, I can see how.
