Solitary Islands Aquarium. It's not huge, but not small either. Probably a dozen tanks, but there's still so much to see and lots of helpful knowledgeable staff that gave us lots of information, and even an hands on experience!
We got to touch a starfish, a sea urchin and a sea cucumber:
Sorry this one's a little blurry - The starfish was harder and more 'rocky' feeling than I thought it would be, while the sea urchin was as expected, spikey! The sea cucumber was soft and velvety!
One of my favourite things that we saw was a small snowflake eel;
Another awesome thing we saw was a Marine Hermit Crab, different from the semi-land dwelling hermit crabs you might be used to, these type stay in the ocean, and amongst anemones.
Yet another amazing creature was this beautiful Octopus:
In one of the tanks there was a particularly beautiful starfish:
A funny thing was, each time we went to that particular tank this starfish would be in a different spot - but we never actually saw it move! I kept waiting trying to witness it 'move' around! But it never did while I was watching! lol!
Here's a pic I got of it's underside when it moved to the front of the tank:
Of course there were clownfish and anemones:
and some other fish, starfish and urchins - this urchin was called a lamington urchin, like the coconut covered choc-dipped cake!
You see the resemblance, right?
