CUSTOM REEF - NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM - BLUE MARLIN
Mid 2017 Custom Reef Aquariums were commissioned to build a bespoke acrylic cover for the new blue marlin exhibit, which is situated in the newly revamped Hintze Hall.
Custom Reef worked with aquarium connections to bring this amazing exhibit to the museum.
The marlin is one of the largest specimens the museum has ever preserved whole in liquid.
The marlins body is absorbing the liquid that it's in (Glycerol) until it reaches equilibrium in the tank and then it will stay suspended without the use of tethers.
The acrylic cover with four sliders to allow access to the marlin.
