I saw that in the gift shop on the way out. I didn't realize it was
supposed to accompany the aquarium tour. If so, that's too bad, but since
the aquarium was built with private funding, I guess they want to pass some
of the costs on to the people using it. Still, they shouldn't expect people
not to get a little ticked off.

I got that video Casper mentioned. It is about the building of the aquarium
and was produced by a Cincinnati TV station. They had it playing there and
when I saw that part of it was on the acrylic tubes I decided to buy it.
There are 200 feet of these tubes. I found them awesome, but I'm easily
