37 minute HD video of Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium

On July 13, 2012, the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, Japan, was bumped down to Asia's second largest aquarium by Aqua Plant Juju, South Korea. But being second place (by just a hair) is nothing to be ashamed about ... as proven by this 37 minute viewing of Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium's massive main tank.

Earlier this month, Advanced Aquarist shared news about the grand opening of Aqua Planet Jeju Aquarium at Seogwipo, South Korea.  Aqua Planet Jeju edges out Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium as Asia's largest aquarium, but only by the slimmest of margins.  Both aquariums are similar, each with gigantic 75 feet wide, 3 story tall main exhibits.

While the new Aqua Planet Jeju is the new king of big, it has some ways to go before matching the grandeur and beauty of this living exhibit at Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium.  Whale sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, huge schools of pelgaic fish ... takes your breath away, doesn't it?
