Zella-Mehlis Things to Do
The Aquarium in Zella-Mehlis was started in the mid 90s by accident. Someone had the idea, after the reunification of the two Germanys to start importing tropical fish. Unfortunately the market wasn't what the person thought it would be and they went bankrupt leaving a warehouse full of tropical fish. The warehouse owner unsure what to do with all the fish found someone who knew how to take care of them and from there the idea of an aquarium sprung to life.
For being in a town the size of Zella-Mehlis the aquarium is quite nice. It covers two floors and has standard aquarium favorites like Lion/Scorpion fish, clown fish, and puffers but also a very nice shark exhibit. Upstairs one finds the reptile room with crocodiles and caimen. On the first floor (second european) are also horseshoe crabs in a lovely costal tank and a koi "petting" pond.
I did have one problem with the aquarium and that is not enough supervision at the koi petting pond. Children were taking the fish out of the water and holding them above their heads. This is not allowed but without supervision it happens. I am sad to say.
