Two new exhibits at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island feature a colorful fish made famous by a Disney film.

You can find Nemo in Coney Island!

The New York Aquarium revealed on Friday its newest attractions — and both feature the clownfish made famous by the classic 2003 Disney movie.

A gigantic coral reef installation — a 167,000-gallon tank that replicates Glover’s Reef, the largest reef on this side of the Atlantic located on the coast of Belize in Central America — features a school of the beloved fish along with green moray eels, majestic stingrays, and bright angelfish.

And right around the corner, a new Conservation Hall highlights three habitats: the southwest Pacific Ocean’s Coral Triangle, which also features the clownfish; Africa’s Great Lakes, featuring species that are unique to its waters; and Brazil’s Flooded Forest, which gives you an up-close and personal view of piranhas in action.

“These exhibitions simulate diverse and unique habitats of some of the most vulnerable places on earth,” said John Dohlin, director of the New York Aquarium, which, with more than 750,000 visitors a year, is the most-visited cultural institution in Brooklyn.

The new exhibitions are the first phase in a 10-year, $150-million renovation of the aquarium that will connect the aquarium to the Riegelmann Boardwalk and expand the aquarium’s shark tank.

New York Aquarium [Surf Avenue and W. Eighth Street in Coney Island, (718) 265-3474]. Admission, $14.95 ($11.95, seniors; $10.95, children ages 3-12; free for children under 3). For info, visit www.nyaquarium.com.
