The Green Planet, Dubai’s indoor tropical rainforest, proudly presents its latest attraction: Rainbow River. As the world’s largest freshwater cichlid aquarium, Rainbow River is now open for exploration at the City Walk spot. Immerse yourself in this mesmerising ecosystem, home to over 2,000 vibrant African Cichlid fish from more than 30 species.

African Cichlid fish are renowned as the most diverse fish species on Earth, displaying an array of colours and sizes. These remarkable creatures can even change colour over time and have a life expectancy of up to 15 years. With 1,350 cichlid species found worldwide, they play a vital role in maintaining the balance of freshwater ecosystems.
