Think those are what, 4 gallon? Pretty small....

Give a look here: reasonably priced, 8 gallon setup, designed for the jellies (actually considering getting something from them for my son for the holidays)

Actually those tanks are a replica of a Biorb. A Biorb 8g would be fine.

From what I've read, yes - anything with edges will damage the jellies. Even high end jellyquariums are round.

I wonder if a hex would work.
These things are cool.

On the site it says "just add water plug in and add jellies and enjoy!"
Pfft.

Yes or they will get trapped in a corner and liquify from stress.

Haha nice.

I went to the boston aquarium and ALL their jelly tanks were cylinders.(pretty sure its a must) This is a pretty cool idea, my daughter will now have to decide between seahorses and jellies, I have a feeling spongebob will play a role in this decision haha.

What do you feed jellies? I think they eat brine shrimp. If they eat brine shrimp, then how much?

Thanks!

I know I seen a few jelly tank with bubble curtains at the top to keep them from surface. Question is what are the parameters? Most species bloom in warm water, so water same wit most salt water maybe not necessary? Most jellies prefer acidic water, im sure they have some sort of buffer u could use
