I want one soo badly! It would be awesome to photograph.

Yay or nay to it?

Anyone have a jellyfish?

I would totally get two and name them John Doe and Jane Doe. :pp

(That is if I managed to save the money, which I wont do for some years...)

I'm pretty sure that most jellyfish require fairly large tanks, and can be difficult/expensive to keep. I've never been mistaken for a saltwater expert, though, so don't mind me! :whistle

Oh my goodness I was at the beach a week ago and we saw baby jellies washed up on the shore and I was wondering what it would be like to have an aquarium of those guys, so beautiful. I saw an episode of tanked once with an aquarium of jellies! :D However, I would think it may be hard to keep..

After we went to the Shedd Aquarium and saw the jellies, my MIL said she's love to have a jellyfish tank. We looked them up online and they were like $10,000 to start for the whole set up. She's thinking maybe a goldfish instead. :rofl

Elaine, I suggest reading over this thread. Someone else recently asked about keeping jellyfish. The general consensus was that they are extremely difficult to care for.

Hmmm ok, thank you. :) I'm not thinking of getting one any time soon. It would be in more than 10 years probably. Its mostly a curiosity of mine. :)

ElaineSelene,

If you are interested in jellies, get the book I mentioned in the link above (post #6). It's a very interesting read by a jelly expert. Here is the book again. :D
