    We went there today and man that place is awesome! If anyone has a chance to go it's a must. If you want to see a fish species it's probably there. Even when we were leaving there was a line 100 yards out the door waiting to get tickets to get in.

    I've been there a few times ( haha - I'm from California too Kinezumi! LOL ) and loved it!!! One could spend literally hours in that place!
    We have an aquarium in San Francisco and Monterey but definitely not as big as Shedd.

    That was one mine and my husbands favorite places when we were dating 46 yrs ago :) see I was a fishy person even back then LOL
    It was terrific then and is a place every one needs to visit now.

    No I took the camera but with chasing 3 kids around it was tough to take a whole lot. Only about 100.

    I remember going there when I was little, but I can't remember any of it :( I wasn't into fish back then, so I probably wasn't paying attention anyways!

    And yes, we need pictures!

    Ok I'm gonna download them today and I'll post the Best ones. We couldn't use flash in there due to the rules and I'm still working no figuring out this new camera and all it's settings.

    I went there last summer, and it was amazing! Beautiful displays, and sooo many of them! And I didn't even go to see the jellyfish!
