     Our aquarium houses over 75 species of marine and fresh water animals.  We have turtles, tortoises, lizards, geckos, lion fish, eels, sting rays, marine invertebrates, budding soft corals, puffers, clowns, dwarf angels, butterflies, and upside down jellies!    We are in the middle of a shark research project monitoring the development of 2 bamboo shark pups.   Our own shark, Epa, laid 23 of her own eggs but none have proven fertile.  The good point is this means our shark and her habitat are healthy!

  Team ECCO is staffed by volunteers, most of which are students, who will answer your questions, guide you to fish, or tell you cool facts.    Join us for a visit under the sea, check out some cool fish, and meet some awesome young marine biologists!
