    Just some pics

    Was at ABG yesterday and took some shots I thought everyone might like














    And I know they are not Neps but it is still kind of cool. They are having a bloom of some freshwater jellyfish in one of the outdoor ponds. (Sorry for the crappy quality, it is hard to photo through water)

    Freshwater jellyfish are pretty common from my understanding. I know they're native to Arkansas. There's a lake about 45 minutes or so from where I live that a lot of the diving schools use for open water dives and the jellyfish are usually seen there.

    I also find those jellies in ponds here in CA that have a recent bloom of algae. A marine biologist at The Monterey Bay Aquarium told me that these jellies spend most of their lives as larvae and only emerge in the adult stage when food is abundant...which also triggers breeding cycles. He also said that some of the larvae can take 10 to 13 years to reach the mature stage.
