What about Jelly Fish?

Anyone keep jellyfish? Its a little odd but it would be different and with the right lights very cool looking.

If so what is involved? I would assume you would need a specially designed tank. A

Does anyone have pics of jelly fish tanks?

Research a bit on how to provide food for them. That might tell you a lot.

I saw an article about jellyfish and I believe you would need a round tank with low light conditions and it would have to be a species tank. I will try to find the read.
Here is a link to some great information on keeping jellyfish.

The Birch aquarium in San Diego has a few jelly tanks. They are all low light species specific tanks. I have some pics I may post later.

I would worry about how to filter it safely, it seems to me they would need a large space for any jelly, and even overflows and skimmers, not to mention canisters or HOBs you would risk making jelly out of your jelly fish.

I'll nitpick here and correct you...they are jellies, not jellyfish If you are dedicated to hatching fresh nauplii almost daily along with feeding foods such as copepods, rotifers, and minced mysis then that is half the battle. Most jellies seem to do well in kreisels and if you are serious about keeping them, this is a must have: Amazon.com: How to Keep Jellyfish in Aquariums: An Introductory Guide for Maintaining Healthy Jellies (9781604941265): Chad L. Widmer: Books

Oh, and skimmers are usually shunned in jelly tanks due to bubbles catching under their bells so weekly massive water changes and routine scrubbing sessions are a must.
