The Aksarben Aquarium in Nebraska holds a massive 1, 450 gallons of water and holds two large viewing windows. The aquarium is open year-round save from some holidays.
There are thousands of species that the 12 tanks in the aquarium display, including a number of fish that are native to Nebraska.
The Aksarben Aquarium also features different habitats in its display tanks.
There are marine life found in the lakes, ponds, and streams.
While many of them are common and can be seen easily, Aksarben Aquarium also displays species which can seen very rarely.
The most popular aspect of the aquarium is the style of the viewing area. The tanks are displayed on an outside circle and visitors can only see one tank at a time.
This makes them focus more on the individual tanks and make them appreciate the animals and the display all the more.
