    The River Safari is a river-themed zoo located in Singapore. It is built over 12 hectares (30 acres) and nestles between its two counterparts, the Singapore Zoo and the Night Safari. It is the first of its kind in Asia and comprise mainly freshwater attraction combined with river boat rides as its main highlights.

    Having just visited, the River Safari promises much more than anything else I've seen in Singapore. I was pleased to see that they had an entire exhibit dedicated to Gator gars, and even more so to see the inhabitants of the african tank. I'm excited to see the Goliaths & african arowanas hit 3-4ft, and to see more bichirs added (hopefully)...

    Looks amazing! I wish I had something like that nearby. Most aquariums in the US focus on marine and might have a couple small freshwater exhibits, but they pale in comparison.

    this is kinda off topic, but the Tennessee aquarium in Chattanooga is split in two sections, one salt and one fresh. The fresh side has a similar set up, with a "River Monsters" tank with aripima, RTC, paddle fish, and big rays.
