More fish swim into Greater Cleveland Aquarium

CLEVELAND - The Greater Cleveland Aquarium got 900 new aquatic residents Thursday morning. Saltwater fish from Key West, Florida now call the GCA home.

Goliath grouper, porcupine puffer fish, polka dot batfish, sea slugs, stingrays and more arrived via tractor trailer to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium around 10 a.m.

The arrival of the new fish means Cleveland's aquarium is just about fully stocked. They now have 5,000 fish.

For the next 30 days, the new fish will remain in quarantine before being introduced to the display tanks.

In its first month being opened, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium saw 64,000 visitors and are "quite pleased" with the number.

The aquarium is Cleveland's hottest, new attraction. Admission for adults is $21.95, children ages 2-12 is $15.95 and parking will cost $3 a vehicle.

The aquarium is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas.
