MIAMI – July 19, 2013 – Living Color Aquariums (www.livingcolor.com), the global industry leader in the design and manufacturing of iconic custom aquariums and themed environments, is proud to showcase new one-of-a-kind aquariums at Kerzner International Resort in Atlantis Casino, Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas and the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Keeping up with the mythical look and feel of Atlantis, Kerzner International (http://www.kerzner.com/) is now featuring a beautiful 15’ long and 1,700-gallon aquarium displaying mesmerizing and exotic Aurelia Auritas, AKA the Moon Jellyfish; these jellyfish get their names from their seahorse (or moon) shaped glands visible from above their bell. Designed and built by Living Color and its staff of talented engineers and marine biologists, this unique custom aquarium transcends into aquatic art as a translucent glow of vividly changing colors through a custom LED lighting system that allows the moon jellyfish to embody living sustainable art. As a backdrop to the Moon Bar, this aquarium is quick to captivate anyone visiting the resort.
“This jellyfish aquarium complements the legendary appeal of Atlantis perfectly,” said Mat Roy, president of Living Color Enterprises and star of the smash-hit reality series “Fish Tank Kings,” on Nat Geo WILD. “With their fascinating biology, these jellyfish pulsate with light and color as they glide effortlessly through specially designed water currents.”
Formerly known as the South Florida Science Museum, the museum recently changed its name to South Florida Science Center and Aquarium (http://www.sfsciencecenter.org/) following the installation of its new aquariums. The museum is now featuring Living Color’s 13 custom aquariums, totaling 7,500 gallons of fresh and saltwater exhibits. These aquariums tell the distinctive story of South Florida’s water ecosystems, navigating visitors from the deep-sea ocean floor, all the way to fresh water canals that residents may find in their back yards.
Most notably, the 600-gallon “Pop-Up” tank, home for tangs, clown fish and fox face rabbit fish, allows visitors to literally stand up and immerse themselves inside of the 360-degree aquarium (and stay dry) while having a colorful rainbow of fish swim all around them. The tanks are all encased in Living Color’s custom cabinetry which is specially designed to withstand public traffic and aquatic conditions while allowing the fish to live within an exact replica of their native ecosystem.
“Living Color was brought onto the Florida Science Center and Aquarium project over a year before its completion,” says Roy. “We were integral to the overall exhibit designs, habitat selections and aquarium layouts. The project required our entire team’s support from our executives, management, manufacturing, installation and marine biologists and we are extremely proud of what we were able to create!”
Living Color’s South Florida Science Center and Aquarium exhibitry will educate and entertain all visitors for years to come. It features: a 260-gallon fresh-water tank with crayfish, pleco (suckerfish) and cat fish; a 20-gallon alligator terrarium with baby alligators; a 20-gallon turtle terrarium with small turtles; a 450-gallon canal with alligator gars; a 180-gallon venomous lionfish aquarium; a 180-gallon boardwalk with puffer fish, eels and grunts; a 270-gallon coral reef aquarium with reef fish and live corals; a 180-gallon octopus and lobster aquarium; a 180-gallon sea horse aquarium; a 550-gallon touch tank with sting rays, star fish and sea urchins; a 1,500-gallon bait ball tank with lookdowns; and a 3,200-gallon deep-water shipwreck aquarium with snappers, eels, sharks and groupers.
This “Fish Tank Kings” new episode will air on Saturday, July 20th, at 10 PM EST. For more information, please visit Living Color’s website at www.livingcolor.com, or call (800) 878-9511.
