Other fish in this tank which you can interact with are box crabs which are the largest crabs to live off the Irish coast, monkfish and skate. The flatfish have a very effective camoflage and they can bury themselves in the sand to avoid being eaten by predators.

Shark Tank & Tropical coral Reef Display: In our state of the art Tropical reef display is home to 8 Tropical Reef SHARKS - 4 Blacktip and 4 Whitetip Reef Sharks. These sharks are not man eating, but certainly look the part with large powerful jaws and protruding teeth. You can experience up close the sharks as they swim through the beautiful colourful Coral Reefs. Around the reefs are thousands of tropical fish. The warm water of this tank is the perfect environment for our Loggerhead Turtles, these turtles were washed up on the Irish coast, cold and lost, having come from warmer waters of the gulf Stream. Staff here at the aquarium have nursed the turtles back to full health and will soon be released back into the wild.
