Named the Kuroshio Sea, this enormous tank at the Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan is over 30 feet deep, 110 feet wide, and nearly 90 feet long. It holds more than 8000 tons of water, equal to about three Olympic-sized swimming pools. Eighty local species of fish are on display here including manta rays, and the world's largest fish, the whale shark.

You have to admit, this is some of the best reality television you've seen lately.

Do you ever notice that in these large aquariums the fish never run into each other? Must be because they're not talking on cellphones or texting.
