Many restaurants not only serve fish, they also display them swimming in their houses of glass.

At the following seafood-focused dining spots, you can check out eye-catching tanks filled with marine denizens. They're there for you to admire.

 

BLACK & BLUE SEAFOOD CHOP HOUSE

A 150-gallon saltwater tank, set into the wall, divides the dining room from the bar area at this seafood and steak restaurant. Inside the tank, you'll find triggerfish, tangs, shrimp and snails, among other marine creatures.

It's only fitting that a high-volume, all-you-can-eat sushi buffet has a mega-size -- 700-gallon -- saltwater fish tank with a variety of colorful tropical fish.

MATSUYA

An enormous tropical fish tank is embedded in the wall of this Japanese restaurant and curves around the entire interior of the place. It's a stunning and colorful sight.
