The Newport Aquarium’s new exhibit Hatching Harbor will bring a new ecosystem and hundreds of animals to the aquarium.

The new Caribbean seagrass habitat will be among the longest tanks, at 25 feet, in the aquarium. It’s set in an immersive environment that lets visitors explore this spot between the shore and the reef. Hatching Harbor is slated to open on March 3.

The new exhibit will be home to various animals, including scrawled filefish, covered in color-changing, maze-like patterns that act as camouflage. Lobsters, crabs alongside urchins and conchs, will also be in the habitat. Visitors can watch them change their shape, color, and markings as they grow into adulthood and head further out to sea.
