It is a stupid idea. These are the people that treat fish like decor and not pets.

I agree with the comment that said "More money than sense".

If they do go ahead with the idea, I hope they change the decor. That is one hideously decorated tank.

Seriously, they didn't try very hard if that's all they came up with. A planted tank on that scale would be a lot of upkeep, but they took on the project, they should have made it look like they cared about the fish.

Are you from South Florida? (just asking)

&& even though I am from South Florida & am a fan of the Marlins. I think this is one of the worst ideas they've come up with since the change of the logo. (its so ugly)
They are trying to attract more tourists to the stadium during season. Which I understand, but is ridiculous if its at the expense of somethings life. The tanks will have a lot of visitors anyway because kids will want to "go see the fishes" and that will pose more problems for parents with missing kids.

They seriously just didn't think this through. Then again, I expect nothing less from the state of Florida.

That's a terrible idea; the fish will have harsh sun in thier
eyes and mean fans that will kick the tanks. The fish won't
get food on a regular basis, either.

I'm fairly sure that they'll be fed on a regular basis. Even if it is irresponsible as a whole, they will have someone properly feed the fish on a regular basis.

I just hope they get someone to care for those fish who
like caring for fish and respects them as a living animal,
and not decor.
