I visited Vegas in November 2009, and just now have finished this photostream of pics and clips I took while I was there. : )

There are a number of familiar fishes in the video, as well as some other critters.

Hope you enjoy!

Excellent!

I visited Mandalay bay a few years ago and was very impressed and surprised that it was much better than many, supposedly, educational aquaria.

The biotopes were much better than most and I particularly liked the damsels and clownfish colonising the edges of the big tank.

Thanks guys. Glad you liked it!

The Shark Reef has the distinction of being the first and only aquarium in Nevada certified by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, which means it meets rigorous standards regarding animal care in captivity. I thought it was quite clean and the animals had well designed enclosures. : )

I've been to this aquarium a couple of times, and also to the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg, TN. Both are excellent facilities.
