We all finally get the chance to look beneath the waves at the new Greater Cleveland Aquarium, which opened Jan. 21 in The Flats' Powerhouse building. The state's only freestanding aquarium is split into six zones, including one that highlights the fish of Ohio's lakes and rivers. Visitors can explore 40 tanks; pet stingrays, starfish and other creatures in a 7,000-gallon touch tank; and walk through a 149-foot tunnel while sharks and other fishes swim overhead. Here are some of the other numbers behind the city's newest attraction.
