Live from Studio 1A: Today Goes Deep!

This morning's edition of "Today Goes Wild" featured an underwater extravaganza as the plaza was taken over by a giant fish tank filled with sharks, puffer fish, sting rays and more.  How long did it take to put this plaza aquarium together?

This morning's edition of "Today Goes Wild" featured an underwater extravaganza as the plaza was taken over by a giant fish tank filled with sharks, puffer fish, sting rays and more.  How long did it take to put this plaza aquarium together? I took a peek at the schedule for the set-up of the tank and it shows the time and dedication it  took to put this amazing segment together:

Monday-8:30 pm-Add decoration to the bottom of the tank

Monday-9:00 pm- Water begins to be pumped into the tank

Monday-9:15 pm- Joe Caparatta (in charge of the fish) begins to mix salt

Monday-10:00 pm-Fish begin to arrive

Tuesday-12:00 am-All fish should be in tank

Tuesday-1:00 am-Additional coral added to the bottom of the tank

Tuesday-2:00 am-Fish get "happy and calm"

An incredible amount of preparation time that begins almost 12 hours before the show even starts!
