We were then shown a tank with various fish…and the tanks behind it with “backup fish” (Fish get sick too, but at the New England Aquarium they make sure you aren't staring at identification signs looking for missing fish.)
Then it was to the Giant Octopus tank with its heavy cover required due to the octopus’s late night fishing exhibitions in the other tanks (I had a pet octopus, Herman, who did the same thing) and then the puzzles given to the octopus where it has to figure out how to get its food. Then there was the crash of water from the anemone tank simulating surf with cute baby lump fish behind it.
Next were the lobsters! A giant blue lobster. A calico lobster.
But all good things have to come to an end…and there was no better way to end the event than with incredibly good cupcakes!
