Why does your title say box jellies? You know they're extremely deadly right? Just get some moons. They don't sting and are really pretty. Also make sure the tank is a cylinder so they don't get stuck in corners.

I'd really recommend trying moons first, then maybe nettles. After that you could try boxes but I have no clue how to take care of them and just because of the dangers I wouldn't even try it. They aren't like the normal poisons in saltwater, like zoa's palytoxins or a lion fish.

Where would i find a box jelly fish for sale ? - Yahoo! Answers

I don't know where you live though. You might want to check the laws there first.
