Creating the world’s finest custom aquariums and themed environments
Loxahatchee River Center
Visitors to the new Loxahatchee River Center are able to experience interactive exhibits. One of the feature exhibits in the tour is an 1,800-gallon freshwater aquarium that was built to represent the wild and scenic Loxahatchee River. Another exhibit allows guests to see firsthand how a flood plain works by unleashing a rush of water into a tank. In another interactive display, visitors can  see how difficult it can be to balance water uses.
We created a giant replica of a cypress tree with a built-in video screento  greet visitors as they arrive. The display provides an overview of the exhibits, which take the visitor on a mini-tour of the river’s habitats, starting with the cypress swamp and leading to estuaries with oyster reefs and mangroves, sea grasses, dock pilings and ending with coral reefs. The tour also includes an educational component to show observers where their drinking water comes from. Among the other exhibits at the facility is a touch tank where visitors can interact with starfish, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, hermit crabs, snails and horseshoe crabs.
A large 1000 gallon  saltwater aquarium representing the area from the Jupiter Inlet is another another exhibit popular with visitors. Living Color has designed and built turnkey aquariums and aquatic exhibits for Zoos, Aquariums and Nature Centers worldwide since 1988.
