New aquarium arrives at Roanoke's Center in the Square

Center in the Square is bringing the ocean to Roanoke, but first it had to bring an aquarium from California. Crews worked into the evening Thursday to ease the new addition into place.
 
Jeff Turner is with Reef Aquaria Design of Florida, the company that designed Center in the Square’s installation. “This is the trickiest part,” Turner told us, “and we cross our fingers and we really do a little bit of praying, and we’re sure it’s going to get here in one piece.”

Crews worked carefully, securing the aquarium to a large crane, slowly lifting it from a flatbed
