Las Vegas Hotels with SW aquariums

We will be going to Las Vegas next month as part of our Honeymoon and we were wondering which hotels have the best tanks on display?

Re: Las Vegas Hotels with SW aquariums

Thanks for the offer, but Las Vegas is just a side trip we are taking,
my new wife hasn't been to LV in 29 years and is in for a surprise.
We are incorprating our delayed honeymoon as part of our annual fireworks convention in Lake Havasu City over President's day weekend where I proposed to her with fireworks of course in front of 2500 club members and townfolks.

Mandalay Bay has an actual aquarium, big tanks and walk through things and everything. It's about $20 per person, and like all aquariums it's full of screaming children, just FYI

ClearForLife 10G Acrylic, 4 HET rasboras, ~80 RCS, various snails. Ludwigia repens, various moss. Eheim 2211 Canister, 50W heater, Finnex FugeRay Planted+ 17W LED.

The Mirage has nice shark tank. Also the the Hotel with the Pro Bass Shop has a huge aquarium where they do feedings. Also the The Bass Pro Shop itself has a big freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image tank with huge trout and other fish.

Re: Las Vegas Hotels with SW aquariums

When I read this the 1st time I was like ahh, Vegas, Whatever. Well since then I found out our next meeting is a week at the Mirage.

Did you go yet? If so, did you find any tanks worth stopping by to look at?

On a kind of double standard, did you find any good seafood buffets?

Re: Las Vegas Hotels with SW aquariums

Btw the Mandala Bay thing is not that great and not worth the money. I much more enojoyed the Bass Pro Shop/Hotel tanks and they were free. JMHO

Re: Las Vegas Hotels with SW aquariums

Well I spent a week at the mirage and a couple of days at the venetian. The mirage had the best that I saw and no others even compared. So when you look at these pics remember they are about 6 foot tall. I wish the front desk wasn't so busy so I could have asked them to stand by the tank for size comparison. The eels and puffer are just huge, they must keep the eels just really full so they dont chomp the tank. Sorry for the camera footage.
