The Toledo Zoo Aquarium will be closing for 2 years in order to do a $25 million renovation. Originally opened in 1939, this will be the first major renovation in its 73-year history. Although fans of the aquarium will have to go without for 2 years, the renovation will more than triple the amount of gallons on exhibit. Another plus is that other aquariums will benefit as 75% of fish are being shipped to other zoos. For instance, the Minneapolis Zoo has already received frontosas and Moody Gardens of Galveston, Texas, recently picked up 40 Yssichromis piceatus.
