The aquarium is divided in a number of zones. Each of these zones represent a different biotope such as pools, oceans and rivers. There is a large water tank which simulates the biotope of the river Thames. Other biotopes have water tanks with a diverse array of fish and other animals such as octopuses, squid and jellyfish.

The biggest attraction is a huge water tank with a large number of sharks and sting-rays. Another large tank, in the Indian Ocean zone, has sting-rays, firefish, sea anemones and frilled sharks.

Sharks are the most popular animals in the aquarium although piranhas, rays, crocodiles and seahorses also attract plenty of onlookers. The rays are especially popular with children since they can caress the rays in a special open tank.
