California Academy of Sciences: Science @ Home - Philippine Coral Reef Dive

At 25 feet deep and 212,000 gallons, the Academy’s Philippine Coral Reef habitat is the largest living indoor coral reef on Earth.

In this video, see what our divers see as they glide through the warm, crystal-clear water to check up on the reef’s residents.

While you watch this video, think about the three questions below. Share your answers with a friend or family member or just think in your head.

  1. Do all fish look the same? What are some differences you can see?
  2. How many colors and patterns can you find?
  3. Think about the body of water nearest to you. Do you think you would see the same kinds of fish?
