A Church Own The World Largest Privately-owned Aquarium?
Readers, the priorities of most churches today are definitely off. Below is a video of an aquarium at a church in Dallas, TX. It's located at the entrance to the sanctuary of the church. It was part of a $40 million project that, itself, was about $3 million. There're 3 full-time staff members, including a Marine Biologist, that maintains the aquarium.
This is the world’s largest privately-owned aquarium! Inspiring Body of Christ Church (IBOC) in Dallas, TX. The 75,000-gallon 70 ft long, 18-ft-high saltwater aquarium contains more than 80 species of fish. 3 full-time marine biologists and 6 certified dietrists care for the tank, with at least 1 person being on site at all times. The 300+ fish in the tank are worth over 100,000 dollars. The aquarium alone cost $4,700,000 to design, build, & stock. (The church was actually built around the aquarium!)Your thoughts?
