Our Indo-Pacific gallery displays fish from the Red Sea, Eastern Asia, Indonesia, Fiji and Hawaii. Upon entering this gallery you’ll notice an exhibit dedicated to the venomous lionfish; its red and white zebra-like stripes and long pectoral fins stand as its own personal warning system. Although intimidating, the lionfish does not use its venom to capture prey. Instead, it relies on its camouflage and speedy reflexes.
This gallery also now features panther groupers, with their distinctive black and white polka-dots, and queensland groupers with their bright yellow markings.
