The Sea Life London Aquarium was hoping sparks would fly when they introduced Zorro, the zebra shark, to his tankmate Mazawabee on Valentine's Day. But Zorro, who used to have an eye for the ladies, has been something of a cold fish. Now the aquarium is hoping to turn the two into a couple of love sharks by playing music by Barry White.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

The Sea Life London Aquarium was hoping sparks would fly underwater when they introduced Zorro the zebra shark to his tankmate Mazawabee back on Valentine's Day. But Zorro, who used to have an eye for the ladies, has been something of a cold fish. Now the aquarium is hoping to turn the two into a couple of love sharks with some R&B. Fish can tell tunes apart, so perhaps a little Barry White to put them in the mood? It's MORNING EDITION.
