This is the world’s second biggest fish tank - so big that it’s even been named the Kuroshio Sea. Located in Okinawa, Japan, the aquarium houses an enormous tank that is some ten metres deep, 35 metres wide and 27 metres long. It is home to a dazzling variety of all the species found thriving around Okinawa, including giant soaring manta rays and the world’s biggest fish, the whale shark. The appearance of the main viewing room is dazzling, and the window is so clear that each year millions of visitors can believe, for a moment, that they have stepped into a magical underwater world.

so guys i’d really appreciate some suggestions on good rat cages! C: since juniper was rather unexpected she’s been staying in a 10g to sleep & then w/ me most of the day, but i’d like to get her a proper setup ASAP„, my budget is ~$60 to $100 bc well, my pets better damn well be comfy. however, my room is fairly cramped on space at the moment so a cage that is taller rather than wider is preferred. i’ll only be housing 2 female rats total.

i’m also looking at DIY’ing an IKEA rat cage„, does anyone have experience with this? is the varnish safe if juni nibbles on it?? 

& yes, looking into getting juni a friend„ but for now i need to focus on getting an actual decent setup aha

taggin the fish comm. cause a lot of u guys are rly knowledgeable. thank you!!
