    First up, this is not my design. The end part will be, but the beginning parts are not my design at all. The design is the Oceanic Aquarium, designed by AverageWalrus. It was an exceptional design that was left unfinished, and I'm not going to bother contacting him since he hasn't been on in a year. So - it's our job to finish this!

    The concept of the aquarium is that it covers different zones - the Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Polar Regions, a Freshwater section, a Deep Sea section, and an Open Ocean section. Below I will list what has been done so far of this large project.
