Some of the  baby seahorses have graduated to the adult tank! Check in with the lined seahorses. 
It takes about 9 months for baby lined seahorses to grow to full size. So as you can see, these seahorses born this past September are already well on their way to adulthood. Several weeks ago they graduated to adult food — mysid shrimp — and a few are large enough to go into the larger tank!

The aquarists that care for the animals in our Armored and Venomous exhibit use kevlar gloves and always have a buddy nearby anytime they have to work in this tank. #fish #handlewithcare #video

How to Train Your Dragon(fish)
Fish can be taught to target feed. In fact, it's better for the health of the entire exhibit in some cases. Get to know the Asian arowana and see why this smart fish uses a target during dinnertime in the Ancient Fishes exhibit:

Today's blog post is chock full of cool video of cuttlefish eating — in fast motion and regular. Check it out!
A beautiful broadclub cuttlefish is currently stalking our cuttlefish exhibit. It is fed an assortment of seafoods, including live crabs now and then. Recently a staff member had their phone recording video during afternoon snack. Take a look at this cool behind-the-scenes video!

A giant glass tank spiraled by a multilevel walkway is the main draw at this waterfront attraction.- Google
"When we visit a new place, we like to go to their aquarium."
"New aquarium tank is pretty dull, no more big sharks or fish."

CAREFUL!! PRICEY PARKING (like 42 bucks for 2 hours) Aquarium itself was very well designed and interesting. Lots of various species to see, I wish that the IMAX was open when I went (was closed for a "special event" of some sort). The highlight is the huge cylindrical aquarium in the middle. There were sharks and a huge sea turtle in there! Got some really nice pictures out of it.

I first came to the Aquarium twice as a kid; first in about 1999, and second in 2003. Just last July, I went back for the first time in 12 years, and some aspects of the place that were around when I was a kid were still pretty much pretty much intact: the spiral ramp going up and down the giant central ocean tank, the neon wall fixtures done in the shapes of different ocean creatures, even the gift shop and café were still in their rightful places. Plus, I was old enough to finally fully recognize several more of the important exhibits that I'd only first read about: - The Penguin Pool (they loved me) - The giant tank in the middle of the room had life from top to bottom (including an employee in a scuba suit) - There was small stingray pool where you could calmly beckon a ray to come close to your hand for you to feel its soft, gelatin-like skin - An eel exhibit with a real-life electric eel demonstrating how it reacts to prey - A small caged-in diorama featuring an endangered species of bird called a plover Overall, I had a great day, and would gladly oblige in coming back again someday.😊

Really great information and exhibits but the layout of the aquarium is a little confusing and doesn't handle large traffic very well. They could do a better job of enforcing no flash photography or tapping on the glass. The line to get tickets was dramatic, snaking you through tents with employees taking your picture to sell you further down the line. The main attraction would probably be the center tank which is really well maintained and cared after. There are hundreds of fish and sea turtles and you could spend hours just watching them all. Without rushing and spending a good amount of time at each exhibit we spent a little over 2 hours at the aquarium. Whether that is enough to justify the money is up to you.

This is a great aquarium that I've visited many times. It's a little smaller than those in other cities and can get crowded on weekends, but they have a great penguin exhibit that spans the ground level and a central giant ocean tank with sea turtles, eels, and variety of other fish. I've attended the free lecture series in the IMAX theater as well and they always bring in interesting researchers to discuss oceanographic topics.

We had a great time! We got a special "behind the scenes" tour with Becca, and we found it very interesting. We wish there were more sharks! and bigger sharks! There were only two sleepy sharks in the petting tank, so we didn't get to touch them. Loved the giant sea turtle, but she pretty much kept her head in a hole the whole time. What can you do... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Luckily got free tickets from a friend and enjoyed our visit. Not very large, didn't expect to go outside and then back in (seals), but they were adorable. Lots of penguin's. No sharks. Two turtles i chased up and down the center tank, so pretty. Very pretty jelly fish. It is not a large place, it can get very crowded very quickly.

Have been there once. It's good and worth seeing once. The ticket is a bit pricey though. Try clubbing the tickets with other attractions in Boston to save some dollars. The penguin tank and the big central aquarium is really beautiful!

I love aquariums and this is one of the local ones near me. This aquarium has many things to see such as the big tank with the sharks, sea turtles, and many more! They have many jelly fish like the moon jellyfish where you they will feed it certain things and just let them glow with the black light. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to answer every questions you provide them. I would recommend that you come here during their feeding time where you can watch the shark and other fishes eat.
