JellyFish Fish Tanks (Kreisel tanks)

I was just browsing around on eBay and saw something that was really unique and something I always wanted (ever since seeing them at this Japanese restaurant in Vegas). JellyFish Tank!!


What are Moon Jelly Fish Tanks?
Jellyfish are a very specialized species that requires a dedicated tank and a very experience hobbyist to keep them. Most of the time you see them in circular tanks as corners of fish tanks can cause them damage or they can get stuck. There’s a special tank made for jelly fish called Kreisel Tanks. The water flow is introduced into the tank in what they called laminar flow which is a gentle flow that keeps the jellyfish in suspension instead of our normal powerheads where it could push them against the glass.Current bid on this eBay auction is $299 but with a few more days left it should unfortunately go higher. I’ll be keeping my eye on this auction for sure!

I myself have actually thought of jelly fish after seeing something on the discovery channel about thimbal jellies. Can’t find anything about them in aquariums though.

That thing does not even look like a tank. It looks like a science lab equipment. I have my hands full with reef tanks at present. I don’t know if I could handle a jelly fish tank!

I saw a very large one of these one the aricongie (sp?) jelly special on DC. They had a bunch of these very little very deadly jelly fish in it. Sweet looking!

Certain species should be left to experienced aquarists in public aquariums ONLY! Jellyfish are one of these species.
