While we were visiting Charleston, SC a trip to the Aquarium was a must. This is a really nice aquarium with more than just fish. They have a nice display for otters, a beautiful bald eagle that I posted an essay of here, many turtles, birds, and an albino alligator, all of which I’ll post about later. Of course I took way too many photos and most of them aren’t very suitable for showing here. There’s always that flash reflection, or if you don’t use a flash the photo isn’t clear enough to actually be interesting. I’ve picked out what I thought were pretty interesting fish photos to share here in this photo essay.
Albino Alligator – this was the best picture I could get ;(
Penguin display – this was a large tank and the penguins just swam up and down. I think there is food down the bottom below the glass.
I prefer seeing the penguins outdoors myself.
Moray Eel, I always like seeing these guys.
Pretty assortment of fish.
I have no idea what kind of fish this is but I thought it was pretty.
Sea turtles, there were a lot of these guys.
Lobster, this was so pretty in the lights, it had a purple hue to it but it didn’t show with or without the flash.
Another fish I don’t know the name of but the tank was pretty and the fish was neat.
Seahorse – my photos of these guys never come out good. I took about ten photos but this is the only one that is half way decent.
The next few are from a please touch tank that the children loved.
Another “mystery fish”
I hope you enjoyed these few photos and if you go to Charleston I hope you’ll visit the aquarium, it’s an excellent trip.
