Rio Grande Aquarium

Our late 500-gallon Rio Grande aquarium featured fish that currently or historically lived in the river in southern New Mexico and west Texas. All fish were native species historically found in the Rio Grande and have since been released back to their native habitat. The Rio Grande Aquarium was made possible in part by a grant from the Stocker Foundation.
