      Sturgeons are such awesome fish. This looks like a pretty nice tank, and a reasonable size, although its hard to tell quite how far back it extends.

      Is there a turtle at the bottom of the tank?
    • zooboy28
      I think its just a head-on view of another sturgeon.

      from the thumbnail I thought it was a turtle too, but it is a sturgeon

      I've been told that the pair on display are Amur Sturgeons, not Chinese. The latter are near impossible to obtain.

      so....they thought they were Chinese sturgeon when they got them? Or they knew they weren't and made a sign for Chinese sturgeon anyway?
    • devilfish
      That's a real shame.
    • Zooish
      Probably the latter. Or they thought they could get Chinese, got the sign made, realised they couldn't get Chinese, and didn't want to make a new sign.

      Looks like one to me.
