ISKANDAR PUTERI: Sea Life Malaysia is on track for its grand opening slated for April this year.

Legoland Malaysia Resort general manager Kurt Stocks said that Sea Life Malaysia welcomed over 23 species of fish, including bala sharks, rasboras and tinfoil barbs, to its Malaysian Rainforest habitat zone.

He added that it was an exclusive habitat zone, which is only available in Sea Life Malaysia.

“With the completion of a third milestone in the construction of Sea Life Malaysia, Legoland Malaysia Resort is one step closer to launching its brand new attraction in April.

“The arrival of the fishes marks another milestone in our construction, which is ahead of our grand opening,” he said, adding that its aquarists have been working diligently to ensure that the water, health and safety of the marine creatures meet the required standard.

Stocks said this in a statement after Sea Life Malaysia welcomed its first group of fish here.

He pointed out that as part of Legoland Malaysia Resort’s commitment to bring new attractions for guests, Sea Life Malaysia would feature 13,000 marine creatures from 11 different habitat zones.

Stocks added among the species included stingrays, zebra sharks, black tip sharks and seahorses.

“Once the first group of fish have become accustomed to their new environments, we will bringing in the larger fish such as the rays and sharks in the coming weeks,” he said.

He also said the largest tank with over 400,000 litres of water, the ocean tank, featured a tunnel where visitors can watch sharks, rays and other sea creatures swim around the biggest habitat zone in the aquarium.

Stocks added that Sea Life Malaysia would also have an interactive touch pool where children could experience and interact with marine creatures.

“Through Sea Life Malaysia, our children will be able to learn the importance of marine life conservation through interactive experiences designed at the aquarium.

“Additionally, Sea Life Malaysia will be the only Sea Life in the region that would combine the interactive aquarium concept with unique Lego elements,” he added.
