"The base of the AquaDom rises 26 feet above the ground floor. Visitors have the unique experience of ascending through the water's depths as they ride a split-level glass elevator from the ground floor up seven floors, through the center of the AquaDom. As they rise they experience an array of colorful corals, rock formations and a myriad of over 2,000 fish.
"It breaks all records as the largest cylinder aquarium in the world, at over 52 feet in depth by 36 feet in diameter. The enormous height, water pressure and unique viewing opportunities created a number of challenges for the ICM filtration design team. Maintaining perfect water clarity in an aquarium of this size is achieved through a sophisticated system of filtration components situated two floors beneath the cylinder. One million liters of artificially created seawater are recycled once every hour to ensure that the aquarium occupants are given the best possible environment while maintaining a perfectly clear viewing experience for visitors."
