Florida was completely submerged in flooded by 2038 as a result of the terraforming efforts of the aquatic ones. Much of northern Florida was converted into a seagrass reserve there was a major source of food for the aquatic ones and the humans that lived in the Miami colony. This region was also dominated by manatees which were genetically modified by the aquatic ones to survive colder conditions. The manatees thrived and manicured the seagrass. Dolphins were also maintained and preserved. Stingrays were also present in this region. The region became known as the Florida seagrass reserve in 2044 and attract human tourists and aquatic ones. Beginning in 2056 manatees became a source of food however this resulted in food poisoning. The major section of this reserve was on the former site of the city of Tampa which was completely demolished by the aquatic ones. A large city known as South Florida city was also constructed in 2088 that was home to 57 million aquatic ones.
