The World's Second Largest Aquarium Tank

From TYWKIWDBI:

The main tank at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. The 'Kuroshio Sea' holds 7,500 cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water. The music accompanying the video is "Please Don't Go" by Barcelona.

It's a beautiful and majestic sight. I think one can't help but have a moment's dismay at the loss of freedom for these creatures that were previously cruising an unlimited expanse of ocean, but perhaps if displays like this draw the public's attention to the wonders of the ocean, then that provides sufficient justification.
Watch it full screen for maximum coolness:

That was wild. I love aquariums. Bring on the world's largest.

Fantasmagoric. Incredably beautifyl. But I also agree about the lack of freedom that the big wide ocean provides. Still, what a beautiful sight.
