Jellyfish majestically and almost effortlessly glide through the water in a truly hypnotic fashion and now they can do so in a living room, bedroom or even an office. From Jellyfish Art comes the winner of the 2011 Global Pet Expo’s best in show aquatic category, the Desktop Jellyfish Tank with 3 Moon Jellyfish plus everything else needed to bring these magnificent creatures of the sea to your home. You might wonder how do they ship live jellyfish? Jellyfish Art has perfected this technique to the point in which they include with the order their “Arrive Alive” guarantee for each jellyfish. They even take it a step further and guarantee the jellies will stay alive for at least two days after arrival. The jellyfish need to be in salt water which can be made by mixing RO (reverse osmosis) filtered water or distilled water with aquarium salt (see video in “More Info” tab) or simply bought from an aquarium store.
The jellyfish tank is specifically designed for jellyfish because they are not capable of surviving in a traditional, rectangular, fish tank without major modifications. The Desktop Jellyfish Tank is circular in design and fitted with a filtration system that keeps the jellyfish suspended in the water. The tank is capable of housing up to 5 jellyfish and can even support jellyfish friends such as red leg hermit crabs, cleaner snails, damselfish and more. Waiting about a month before introducing additional fish to the tank is recommended to ensure the jellies have time to get acclimated and allow the tank to build up healthy bacteria. The Desktop Jellyfish Tank also comes with color-changing LEDs at the bottom of the tank which are controlled via an included remote. It is this feature that takes the Desktop Jellyfish Tank from cool to stunning because it turns the tank into a piece of living art. The LEDs will light up the water causing the jellyfish, themselves, to glow the same color making their slow, effortless movement hypnotic to watch. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
