manila ocean park - agos


Manila Ocean Park - Agos (Flow) – a rainforest motif complete with 8 tanks of freshwater fishes. Enter the journey and witness water cascading from an artificial waterfall that flows into 8 different water tanks displaying various flora and fauna. The water flow replicates the fresh water source that eventually leads to the open ocean, creating a model of the interconnectedness between land and sea.

To be honest i wasnt impressed with the artificial waterfall if you could really call it a waterfall. the agos part which is the first section in the ocenarium welcomes you with a patch of green plants (kinda remind me of the Malabon Zoo where they have the same hanging root plants, dont know what it's called) and also with big aquariums... the first aquarium tank shows really big arowana fish.

anyways here are some fish photos taken at the manila ocean park

Stunning fish though even if the waterfll wasn't to your taste. Artificial never as good as the real thing.
