The 25 meters (82ft) high AquaDom, placed at the lobby of the Radisson SAS Hotel in Berlin is the largest cylindrical aquarium ever built. It contains some 2600 fishes of 56 species and it’s filled with 900,000 liters (225,000 gallons) of seawate.




The Aquadom is the largest acrylic glass cylinder in the world, with a diameter of over 11 meters, built on a 9 meters tall concrete foundation.




I've never seen a tank like this, its stunning.





This tank was finished in '04 but its new to me.

Hopefully I'll get to see this in real life one day (pictures never do justice)

Looks really cool! For something made out of glass, it is interesting to note how much pressure it can withstand!

Looks fake on youtube.

Have you seen the real thing? Where is it and where can I find out more info about it?

Do a google search - Okinawa Aquarium
It's on Wiki also.
The acrylic is 2 foot thick.

What do you know it is real!

Okinawa Aquarium

Boy do I look stupid.

But while we're playing mine is bigger than yours, here's my throw down;



Georgia Aquarium


The Wickipedia link for Okinawa said it was the 2nd largest behind
Georgia's.

Everyone knows bigger is better.

Don't worry, the berlin one is still the largest "cylindrical aquarium" in the world.
You're still safe on your opening thread!
