Silverton Casino Celebrates National Aquarium Month


Named "Best Free Attraction" in Las Vegas, the 117,000 gallon aquarium features exotic fish, sharks, stingrays and mermaids.

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 12, 2016

June is National Aquarium month, a good time to explore the Silverton Casino aquarium featuring thousands of species of fish, sharks and stingrays as well as live mermaid swims.

The focal point of the front lobby is an astonishing 117,000 gallon salt water aquarium with 1,000s of tropical fish, 100s of different species of fish, six distinct species of sharks, four breeds of stingray and one unique class of mermaid. It takes time, knowledge and a lot of behind the scenes patience to maintain the serene peace within the aquarium.

Education and conservation are the real value of providing a free attraction inside the resort. We recognize the hard work it takes to protect the sea life, the environment inside the aquarium and everything that goes unseen with the watery habitats located throughout the property.

"I find the most fascinating thing about the aquarium is that it is not geographically exclusive. We have fish represented from every ocean except the Arctic and Southern Ocean," states Aquarium Curator, Ryan Ross.

Visit one of the best free attractions in Las Vegas during the month of June and see beautiful Mermaids swimming throughout the aquarium. Also, enjoy daily live stingray feeding shows while being educated about all the wonders of the ocean.
