Life Below The Water Line

Life Below the Water Line, a traveling freshwater aquarium, is available for public events. The aquarium holds 2,200 gallons of water and Ohio River fish. With two 5′ X10′ viewing areas, this display is designed to demonstrate the diversity of life sustained by the Ohio and the improvements that have been made in water quality.


Due to the high demand for the ORSANCO mobile aquarium, you must submit your request for the tank at least six months in advance.  Please note that there is a two-day minimum for the tank rental.  For price details on renting the aquarium for an upcoming event, please call Steve Braun at 513-231-7719.
