    Default trying to build my own jellyfish aquarium

    0 Not allowed!
    im hoping that someone out there in this site will have good information for me. im undergoing a huge project with little money for my gf. you see we both are in love with jellyfish and i would like a tank in my house but the thing is all the ones i've located on the internet are way to expensive for what they are, and i believe i can build one for cheaper but i dont know the first thing about the equipment, or the materials i would need for the project. Any advise is good advise.

    thanks you

    hmmm, jellyfish huh? I think I read somewhere in this forum about how difficult and tedious it is to keep jellyfish, because everything has to be perfect...but then again, if there are tanks for it, there must be a way! I wish I could help, and good luck!

    To be honest, I don't think anyone here has had much experience with a big saltwater project like that. I would highly recommend since their members seem to keep some of the more difficult/exotic varieties of saltwater fish. They also have detailed plans on the construction of large aquariums. And like we've said before, make sure you are prepared for what is to come. Jellyfish are a lot of work, and that's an understatement.

    I think that it's going to be impossible to do a jellyfish tank for cheap.

    You pretty much need a tank with NO corners at all.........not to mention all the maintenance and stuff.....

    I'd be very cautious trying to build your own system if you don't have prior experience or have a friend who has experience to personally help you. Could end up being a disaster. Just be sure to research, research, and then research some more.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    all of the actual "jellyfish" tanks ive seen are either spheres or circular. that would be difficult to do.

    It is however good info, and something that should be noted is that Jellyfish do need to be kept in a cylindrical aquarium. Corners are deadly to Jellyfish since they will very likely get stuck there.

    Oooo old thread, but still a thread in itself.

    I'd love a jelly aquarium, but I think that instead of having a completely cylindrical tank, which would be hard to do and expensive, couldn't you just block up the corners with some excessive amounts of tank sealent? Wouldn't that be cheaper than a huge cylindrical tank?

    It would be pretty cool though, a huge round tank. Jelly fish aren't that exciting, and I think tank maintenence would be painful, but it would still be a really cool tank.
