The mermaids will be swimming inside the 6.3 million gallon Ocean Voyager exhibit, the largest saltwater tank in the world. They'll perform among whale sharks, which are the world's largest fish, and other unique undersea species.

Mermaids have been swimming for visitors since 1947 in a natural spring in the tiny town north of Tampa.
