Rio Grande AquariumOur 500-gallon Rio Grande aquarium features fish that currently or historically lived in the river in southern New Mexico and west Texas. All fish are native species historically found in the Rio Grande. We will exhibit additional fish species in the future as specimens are collected or purchased. Come and visit! The Rio Grande Aquarium was made possible in part by a grant from the Stocker Foundation.
