  • A very good aquarium for a short visit with kids.There are some really big fish, seahorses and tortoises on display. We spent an hour here and really enjoyed it. You can also buy fish food and feed them. There is a nice gifts, toys and refreshments shop at the exit .
  • Kids enjoy feeding fish. Reasonable price. Rm5 for adult..easy parking. Recomended to come.
  • Small cozy hidden gem. Reasonable collection of fishes given that it was only RM 5 per person. Friendly staff as well. Suitable for kids. My little one loved it.
  • It's a sort like Aquaria KLCC, but with less fish and less excitement. But for a place rm5 ticket per entrance, it's superb
  • Nice place and good information for aquatic life. For old timer its free.
