Each of these fish plays an important role in making Blacktip Reef a complete and functional ecosystem. Guests will be able to see how species school together and interact with each other - some will connect through play while others will through important symbiotic behaviors like cleaning.

Over the next two weeks, the fish will be given time to settle into their new home. At the end of this month, larger animals including our blacktip reef sharks and rays will be introduced to the exhibit!

Stay tuned for more updates as Blacktip Reef continues to come to life!
