Over at Aquatic Quotient a forum member has uploaded some images of an aquarium in Barcelona’s science museum – Cosmocaixa. I accidentally found this via google images while doing some reading on Echinodorus spp. The giant display replicates a flooded tropical forest, placing the viewer at eye level with big prehistoric fish like Arapaima. Above the waterline is vast vertical area for emerging buttress root trees and leafy canopy, which only adds to the sense of scale.

Even from the photos you get a feeling of awe; and you can see them here: Cosmocaixa
