From all appearences, it seems like it. The local paper had a big spread on
and a local TV station had an hour "preview". The exhibits seem well thought 
out and it looks pretty spectacular. I've been to the Albuquerque aquarium
have to admit it was not overwhelming. So far, the Denver aquarium seems much 
like Monterrey Bay in concept and execution (a lot smaller though). 

If anyone is intertested, I can scan some of the articles and post them. 
Nothing about aquatic plants, though. There was a cute quote from one of the 
aquarists involved with maintenance on the saltwater tanks - the "Days of
and Hoses" <g>.

Of course, I won't be able to see it very soon because I hate crowds. 
Especially crowds well salted with ankle-biters. I'll wait until school
then get there right at the opening bell on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning.
