The DNR has replaced the 17 small, almost-ancient indoor aquariums with five much larger tanks — one stretching 18 feet and two measuring 14 feet. Each will show fish in their simulated native habitat.

this sounds reallly cool and I am anxious to see it but...these tanks stay at the fair grounds all year for a 12 day fair. They are not moved off site as far as I know. So we spent $460 thousand dollars on these aquariums. I like the plan but question that it should have cost that much. 460 THOUSAND dollars for some aquariums. On top of that some state employee must stop by daily or so to feed the fish all year?
