Featured Animal Action

A company called Aqua Trends provided the fish and aquarium that was in the wall of the programming room in the film. Aqua Trends maintained the aquarium throughout the production. In one scene, the intern, Laura, drops some food into the aquarium. The actress was instructed by one of the experts at the company on how much food to give the fish before the scene was filmed. The real fish were replaced with rubber ones when the aquarium breaks during the fight sequence with the monster.
