Dont expect too much, though. They had a huge Arapaima, a native of the Amazon, the size of a human. Mostly all other fishes were common ones. Entry fee is around Rs.60 per person.

There is nothing to see other than local fish. Very much disappointing. Very much unprofessionally maintained. Water was too dirty, one cannot see fish clearly in most of tanks.
