JELLYFISH question.....

Everyone is saying that a jelly fish (moon) would get stuck in a normal fish tank with 90 degree corners, and I'm just wondering how and why?

To my knowledge they require specialized tanks for that very reason.

Yes they can die if the get stuck in a corner or to the intake because they have no sense of direction. They need a circular current in their tank you can do this by using deflectors and a drilled tank and intakes should be guarded
