Used to love coming to Sealife Blackpool before the one in Manchester opened, although the theming in Blackpool is better the quality is poor. There are very few exhibits at toddler/young child height there are very few exotic species in Blackpool compared to others. It seems to concentrate on Shoreline, Amazonian and the size of their sharks. In my opinion it has gone way down hill. We saw 1 puffer fish, 1 clown fish (which in all honesty we could have totally missed) no lion fish, the tropical fish tank that held the lion fish and eels seem to have been replaced by giant crabs, the jellyfish leave a lot to be desired. In my opinion although the Manchester one may be small, it has a better quality and quantity of fish and is better geared to younger children (exhibits at their level, no picking up or lifting needed and lots of colourful fish)
