Comments It was a lovely dive in the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland in late August. Unfortunately, this would be our only diving for us this year.

Their Atlantic Reef tank is a 13 foot deep tank holding over 300,000 gallons of saltwater. The tank consists of various fish including, Atlantic Spade fish, Hog fish, Gray, French and Queen Angel fish, Pork fish, and many more. Also there are two large Green Moray Eels to spice things up.

Part of the fun of the dive is that folks outside the tank can watch those of us inside. So if you go, bring your non-diving friends and family to enhance your experience.

Even though this is a controlled environment dive, it is still a nice substitute for the real thing.
