The Idaho Public Aquarium is finally done after a few years of planning and construction. I am happy to say it has made life easier. I have been busy making all the animals same and happy in their new homes. Things are looking great so far at the Aquarium. Find the Aquarium web site here
Well, construction is well under way in the new Idaho Aquarium. The good news is we have had a lot of donations. most recently its been L.W. Johnson construction. He donated all of the paint labor. He showed up got is guys working, spent some time talking to us then took off.
We started on 4 main exhibits, the touch tank, the sting ray tank, the bamboo shark nursery, and the aggressive fish exhibit. The aggressive fish exhibit is medium size, its 14'x 7'x 45" tall. It has 2 large viewing windows, one is 90"x 33" the other is 48"x 33".
Here is Amy Covino running around with her shirt over her eyes at the Aquarium store. She was literally running around in circles and laughing all the way. I kept telling her was going to fall down but she did not seem to mind. I some video of this as well it is so funny. This was just when the Aquarium store was brand new open so some of the shelves are still being stocked. I built the store to give me something to do while the Idaho Aquarium was in development. I ended up selling the store about a year after it was opened because we started to get very busy with the Idaho Aquarium project.
Here is Carrie Covino teaching Amy how Ammon makes corals grow in the Aquarium store just liek they do in the ocean.
