|MIRAGE CORAL REEF AQUARIUM
One of our most popular attractions is the aquarium located behind the Front
Desk. This 20,000-gallon saltwater aquarium is home to angelfish, puffer fish,
tangs, sharks and other exotic sea creatures.
Managed by The Mirage's own in-house aquarists, the aquarium
accommodates more than 1,000 coral-reef animals representing 60 species
from Australia, Hawaii, Tonga, Fiji, the Red Sea, the Marshall Islands, the Sea
of Cortez and the Caribbean. These sea animals were all selected for their
adaptability to the environment and compatibility with other species.
One of the most elaborate and technically advanced aquariums in the world,
the tank is 53 feet long, eight feet from top to bottom, and six feet from front to
back. The acrylic used in the aquarium is 4 inches thick. The interior was
carefully created to simulate an intricately detailed, artificial coral reef. To
preserve the living reefs in the ocean, no live coral is used in the tank.
