This is one of the reasons I love Asia.
I have been breeding and keeping Tropical freshwater fish for some 10 years. I love the fact that I can try and replicate their natural habitat in a tank. For me, it is a special hobby as I get to view close up the life of a species we do not always get to see.
Fish have become a source of food. Our seas and rivers are saturated with boats and nets constantly taking this valuable resource to provide food for the population.
Whatever you believe about our planet. We are indeed depleting certain aspects. So whilst people may believe that keeping fish and indeed animals in captivity is wrong, it may be the only way to ensure the survival of these species.
So I do enjoy going to aquariums and seeing what kind they keep and it’s great to see the one in Asia.
They make em big.
And Singapore, as predicted, is the biggest in Southeast Asia and possibly the world.
The entry fee is S$31 for adults and is located on the man-made island that is a theme park. Sentosa has it all, from a theme park, Universal Studios are there to a beautiful beach.
Giving that everything about this place is man-made it is worth visiting .. maybe once. Singapore has modelled this place and what they believe is what will attract tourists as well as the locals.
Over the last few years, the attraction has dwindled and as a result, this place is to undergo a huge makeover in 2020.
