Inside The Story: Aquarium Divers Keep Fish Healthy, Kids Entertained
(KUTV) There's plenty to see and do at Scheel's in Sandy, but inside the taxidermy mountain is a whole new adventure that's off limits to the public. Dan Rascon takes you "Inside the Story" for a look at what's behind the secret entrance in the fake rock door.

What started out as a single piece of coral in a basement aquarium has grown into a dream job for one Utah man. He's the keeper of one of the largest tropical fish aquariums in a commercial business.

Jerry Ohrn, owner of a home grown business called 'Reef On' is the keeper of the tank. He manages a team of divers who take a dip in the tank five days a week. They feed and check on the fish and then scrub and clean the inside and outside of the tanks.

The 16,000 gallon tank is home to over 600 fish which includes more than 90 different species. The fish come from all over the world including the Red Sea, Tonga and the Philippines. Besides caring for the fish the divers are entertainment for store visitors. People of all ages love to stop and watch as the divers work inside the tanks.
