Florida Marlins' new baseball stadium has aquarium behind home plate
Headline says it all. Can't see a ton from the video. Looks like saltwater-themed decorations but hard to ID any of the fish.
Lots of people on youtube are questioning this, which is nice to read. It cetainly raises a lot of questions - won't the fish be stressed? Will the tanks stand up to a 90 mph fastball that gets deflected into them?300 gallon mega tank: build in progress
75 gallon community tank: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
29 gallon frog tank / 10 gallon tadpole tank: 1 leopard frog, 1 tadpole
10 gallon and 5.5 gallon betta tanks: 1 male betta each, sometimes snails

Personally, being a baseball fan I think this is pretty cool, BUT only if they can find a way not to stress out the fish while baseball is going on. They probably would need bulletproof glass and layer after layer of it. Anyway, it sure beats watching a baseball game and having adds for TV shows go on and off the backstop.
Guess we'll all need to wait and see.

Hope that glass is baseball-proof
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act
