Florida on a Tankful

Scott Fais, host of the popular feature ‘Florida on a Tankful’ on Tampa Bay’s local news station Bay News 9, recently visited RumFish Grill to ‘sea’ what it was all about…

He was immediately impressed with our immersive dining atmosphere and the ability to order a meal from a glow-in-the-dark menu. Chef Justin Harry gave him the inside scoop on where we source our seafood – and no, it’s not from our tanks!


Next, he chatted up the Secret of the Seas Curator, Zachary Ostroff, to learn more about our 33,500 gallon aquarium that was built to emulate the Gulf of Mexico habitat.

After learning all about the more than 30 species that make up our 150 resident fish, Scott was ready to take the plunge with our Swim with the Fishes program. Just as he was submerging himself into the moderated 77 degree saltwater tank, he was quickly warned to watch his pockets…

“”They like pockets,” said Zachary. “I don’t know what it is… I think they are looking for cash or something like that,” he concluded with a laugh.
