Our friends at Atlantis Marine World (Long Island, NY) have formally announced their 97,498-square-foot, $24 million expansion! Construction began spring of 2010, and the new expansion is set for its grand opening in the summer of 2011.

Atlantis Marine World and their curator/co-founder, Joe Yauillo, are no strangers to Advanced Aquarist readers.  In 2007, Joe shared Atlantis' amazing 20,000 gallon reef aquarium in our magazine (read the Feature Aquarium article).

The expansion will include an exhibition, banquet, and conference center, as well as a 100 room Hyatt Place Hotel. We can't wait to visit the new expansion, and we hope to see future reefkeeping events hosted at Atlantis Marine World's new facilities.  Congrats to Atlantis on all the progress they've made in the past decade!

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
