I saw this site a while ago too and was very tempted to buy one right there and then. I didn't bc I don't have room for it, but it's definitely on my list, I'm thinking an aquarium for on an office desk.
According to their website the jellies are easy to care for, but I never trust a website that's trying to sell u stuff. My concern is how on earth do they ship them to u. It looks like in a bag and box, I would think any rough handling and the jellies would end up in pieces.
I'm interested in seeing if anyone else has any experience with them

Yea that's true I did see that tit showed on there video it arrived in a bag inside a box. I didn't realize that it could present a problem like that I think they should be fine. Hopefully somebody who has had experience will give advise on jellys

Moon jellies get fairly large and you would need at least a 75g kreisel just for 1 or 2 at adult size (multiples for juveniles). Jellies need multiple daily feedings of 48hr nauplii, minced mysis, and/or cyclop-eze. They also require thorough cleanings weekly and cooler temps. Having worked with them I can only recommend them for professionals. Many jellies offered (even their site) require larger tanks in months to come for actual growout.

Thats a bummer. Hopefully, someday I will be enough of an expert and have the space to take care of 1 or 2. They are very beautiful and amazing creatures.
