The freshwater aquarium is set up in such a way as to represent the local conditions and aquatic life one would find in the Little Red River and Gin Creek which flow through Searcy. All of plants and animals in the aquarium were collected locally.
Our 155 gallon aquarium was donated by W. R. and P. M. Boykin. It is stocked with marine fish and invertebrates.
