Four different tanks around the central tank recreates four different unique habitats: Atlantic ocean, Pacific ocean, Antartica and Indian ocean (travel.usnews, 2016).   These tanks are separated from the central tank only by large sheets of acrylic to provide the illusion of a single large tank ( wikipedia, 2016).
