I noticed they have two behind the scenes tours at the aquarium. I'm interested in the reef tank and the plumbing and whatnot. Which tour is the best to learn about the saltwater section of the aquarium?

Also, whats the highlights of each, and does the saltwater tour involve the whale sharks at all? Thanks for the help.
