ATLANTA (AP) -- It's official: The Georgia Aquarium is the
world's largest fish tank.

Alistair Richards with Guinness World Record in London, visited
the downtown Atlanta attraction Sunday and presented aquarium President David Kimmel with a certificate naming it the world's largest aquarium. The attraction, which opened in 2005, holds more than 8 million gallons of water in its exhibits.

That includes the stunning 6-million-gallon Ocean Voyager tank.
A new dolphin exhibit slated to open in the fall adds another 2
million gallons, cementing the title.

Aquarium spokeswoman Meghann Gibbons said the attraction has held the world record since opening in 2005, but this is the first visit from a Guinness official.
