    Jellyfish Art offers Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia aurita), which do not sting.

    http://www.jellyfishfacts.net/aurelia-auritax.html says
    their optimum temperature range is between 9 degrees C and 19 degrees C.
    which is 48.2-66.2 degrees F

    Because obviously we all want to grow box jellies...
    obviously.


    Also, please remember that jellies arent fish.


    Jellyfish is a failed name lol.

    went back and read everything
    seems like water temperature would be the only problem (i didnt see the filtration and bubbles thing the first time over)

    there are a number of jellyfish that would likely do very well if you find a tank design that works......a mass produced tank design that works will likely quickly lead to better tropical species being imported.....whole lot of jellies arent that demanding in care other than issues with them getting sucked into intakes....other than that given the easy access to a wide variety of food products that we have today with the right tank there are prolly alot of tropical species that could enter the trade real easy.....

    i really like the design of their custom made desktop jelly tanks. they look like they would be an ideal desktop environment for jellies. apparently they will be available soon...

    they look like they would be better than the current desktop tank they are selling, which i think is just this...

    Very cool - Jellies would be a neat critter to observe especially if they had babies in captivity.
    I do wonder... $250 is a hell of a lot for a small cylindrical tank kit like that. I mean, Walmart has a kit with the same cylindrical tank, lights, UG filter, airpump and color swapping LED light for about $25... LOL

    These are much easier to care; no need to change water, no need to feed:

    I saw an ultra-miniscule creature in my saltwater tank reminded me of a jellyfish

    it was a head of one dot 'suspended' 1-3 mm above a ring of about 10 more dots
    oriented single dot upward, and it was rapidly propelling itself upwards by shooting the head forward, catching up to it, and repeating.
    veryyyy interesting

    im sure it wasnt a jelly but resembled one nonetheless

    you may be able to spot it near the blue bulb of the light

    very small!
