The Secret Aquarium is a large fish tank filled with water. There is no place for the player to surface for air, so they have to collect coins in order to avoid drowning. There are 40 Yellow Coins in rings with Red Coins in the center of the rings and on the room's floor. The only Power Star to collect is the one that appears when the player collects all eight of the Red Coins around the aquarium.

While not physically changed in Super Mario 64 DS, the course features music absent from the original game: the full percussion version of the Dire, Dire Docks theme.
