Fish Windows

Interesting concept -- went to see it while visiting Boulder in June. Interesting to see the wall with windows, but windows pretty dirty, can't really see anything under water. The water was high and running very briskly, so that could be a possible contributor as well to poor visibility.

The intentions were good on this, but it's literally a waste of time. It could have been a great community space, but just seemed neglected.

So much scum. Don't waste your time.

Fish Windows

Windows were pretty thoroughly covered with dirt, scum, and graffiti. Only the upper 1/6th or so of the windows remain unobscured. No fish viewing is possible. Still kinda neat tho.

Just lots of algae and scum buildup on the fish windows, and pretty brown water.
