    I could not find mention of this anywhere else, so I figured I would make a new thread for it.

    While looking up the work of David Lazenby, the designer of a refurbished exhibit at The Deep in Hull, I found mention of this project that is still in the planning phase in India.

    Among the planned exhibits in this aquarium are:
    - A 3-million litre oceanarium tank with a large shipwreck and a 45-metre long acrylic tunnel
    - A reef edge tank complete with waves breaking above the viewing area
    - A large seal enclosure
    - An outdoor African penguin exhibit
    - A mangrove display featuring mugger crocodiles
    - A Western Ghats montane forest section with an otter exhibit
    - Plus smaller exhibits for species such as shoaling fish and poison-arrow frogs.

    I look forward to seeing whether this project actually happens - if it does this could be one of the best aquariums in the world.
