The display is also home to a variety of juvenile species which use the mangrove as a nursery before moving on to the open ocean.
In 2009, a four-foot polychaete worm, nicknamed Barry was eventually captured after months of trap laying. The monster had been ravaging the coral reefs in one tank of the aquarium, in some cases ripping them in half, and injured one of their Tang fish. Contact with the venomous bristles at the mouth of the worm can cause permanent numbness, and it has now been moved into its own tank.
