Jellyfishs in Aquarium

I've seen a couple of vids with some people having jellyfishes with their fish... I was wondering, are they easy to keep, is there anyone who have a jellyfish who I can talk to? And does anybody have links or info?

To my knowledge, jelly fish don't do well in tanks with corners due to them getting stock in the corners and can't get themselves out and die.

This is true they need a circular tank.

I heard its more beneficial, but I'm still puzzled on how they actually can get stuck in the corner of a tank lol

They should be constantly moving. usually a circular flow in the tank to keep them suspended. By this i mean circular from top to bottom, not side to side. I think the temperature requirements are a little lower also, but not sure.

The jellyfish I was looking at was called a moon jelly, they can tolerate a wide range of temperatures apparently.
