After paying the entrance fee and walking down the stairs we first look at the North Sea section with fish like the pollack. Here we also se the seals swim under water. Following is the shark tank and then the antarctica area with fish and other species rarely seen in a public aquarium. From Antarctica we go straight to the the rainforest section with Poison Dart Frogs, Common Hill Myna and pygmy marmoset wich leds up to the ground floor. Here the first thing we meet is the coral reef with seahorses among others. Looking at the sharks and the seals (above sea-level) we at last look at the Magellanic penguins
