Watch the hustle and bustle of a coral reef community.
Try to keep up with a bevy of busy tropical fishes as they traverse the corals in our special exhibition, ¡Viva Baja! Life on the Edge.
This colorful neighborhood is home to many species of tropical fish, including the Cortez wrasse, scrawled filefish and Cortez angelfish. In the wild, coral reefs are among the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth. Healthy reefs protect nearby shorelines and wetlands, and are home to thousands of species of fishes and corals.
How does a skate settle down for the evening? Do sharks get shuteye once the Aquarium closes? Find out with a sleepover! After fun activities and a bedtime snack, snuggle in next to your favorite exhibit, then wake up to a continental breakfast.
The Moorish idol is back on display in our ¡Viva Baja! special exhibition. This fish, Zanclus cornutus, is the one and only member of the family Zanclidae. It ranges from the Indo-Pacific to the Gulf of California and can be found near reefs and the seafloor.
Our standards-based curriculum has been developed to provide educators with easy-to-use, Aquarium-centered science activities for the classroom.
