Jelly Fish

Hi, I recently started a jelly tank (8 gal, jelly specific with 3 moon jellies). The past 2 weeks they've done amazingly well but yesterday I noticed that 2 of the 3 seem to be rather lethargic (1 very much so) just laying at the bottom of the tank for the most part. The salinity is perfect and from what I can tell the water quality is good (picking up a test kit tomorrow to double check) and they are fed daily. Any suggestions?

Idk about moon jellys but i do know box jellies will chill at the bottom and sleep.
But first things first, did you cycle the tank? And if so, how?

The tank instructions said it didn't require any cycling and came with liverock.

How big are they? What temperature is the tank? Also, moon jellies seem to be pretty picky about water quality, so I recommend getting the test kit asap. You can't necessarily tell if water quality is good just by looking at it.

..idk if theres anything special with it but every tank needs to cycle. Did the tank have the water and rock in it when you got it?? And have you tested the water to see the levels?

The tank was purchased from JellyFish Art Jellyfish Tanks | Pet Jellyfish, Jellyfish Aquariums, and Accessories It is the 8gal cylinder tank. Its just strange that they were doing fine until last night. I've had reef tanks in the past but this is my first jelly tank and 1 of the 3 is still swimming around just fine. So confused lol

Hmmm, it seems the link has to be approved. The tank was purchased from Jellyfishart.com It is the 8 gal cylinder tank. I've kept reef tanks in the past but this is my first experience with jellies. Its just strange that 1 of the 3 is doing just fine. I hope they are just sleeping as tarpon suggested...Sorry for the duplicate post once the link is approved.

Every tank needs a cycle. It could be that one of your levels spiked (during the cycle) and thats why they are acting wierd. Hope they get better!!!!! GL!!!!!
