comma splice

0

is this question missing any comma splice, and please can you correct any mistakes.

 

Today we went to the aquarium to look at the marine life. In the tanks, were many types of fishes and mammals. The man was feeding Macho sharks by hand, James had a chance to feed the deers and May swam with the dolphins in the 2:30 show. She was wet from head to toe the rest of the day.

You need a comma after 'Today'. I movet the prepositional phrase to the end of the sentence in #2. Sentence 3 has a comma splice which I fixed by adding  ending that sentence.  This puts both of the children's activities in the same sentence. It's 'mako shark' and doesn't have to be capitalized. 'Deer' doesn't need an 's' but does need a comma to avoid a run on sentence.
