Hi Wayne here! I haven’t posted any new articles on Perry’s Aquatic Centre blog for a while, we’ve been too busy in the shop: ) Fortunately my brother who built this website and handles all of our Internet marketing has recently spent a few months in Thailand (lucky sod). He showed me his holiday photos and I asked him if he wouldn’t mind posting some of them on this site as I thought they may be of interest to our loyal readers and new visitors alike. (First of all I asked him to remove all the pictures of the ladyboys… no one need to see them)! Over to to bro…
Wayne asked me to share a few photos of the amazing fish you can see when you visit Siam Ocean World. So here you go…
Now I don’t know a lot about fish, Wayne is you man on that subject but I know what I like and if you find yourself in Bangkok and want to escape the relentless heat of the day, there is no better place to idle away an afternoon than to head downtown to the Siam Paragon Center and visit this truly amazing aquarium.
OK I live in central London and the London Sea Life Aquarium is just down the road from me but I’ve never been there, funny that! But as a tourist in Thailand this was a really memorable day and well worth the 900 Baht entrance fee.
The acrylic panels that make up the walls of the aquarium are 6 inches thick and hold in the region of 3000 tons of water. There also the only thing between you and some very mean looking sharks including the bizzar looking Hammerhead sharks.
Ocean World also has a breeding program with over ten different species of sharks, pipefish, sea jellies and seahorses successfully reproducing. If you time your trip right you can witness the feeding frenzy of the sharks, eagle rays and penguins. If you are feeling brave you can also dive and feed these fish yourself!
Hope you enjoyed the photos and remember to visit Perry’s Aquatic Centre for all your under water wordly goods!
