    You would need more sealent than is practical. The only sane way to do a Jelly tank is to do a cylindircal tank.

    Ya I guess so, oh well.

    I'd assume a tank like that would be hard to make, and probably very breakable, and super expensive. I've never seen anybody with a jelly fish tank before, but I really want to. I don't think I'd ever want one though..now that I realise how difficult tank maintence would be in a huge cylindrical/ spherical tank with poisonous jellies...and what if they got sucked up the gravel vac? Would they just compress themselves and squeeze all the way down the tubing?

    I read an article recently on how Jellies are becoming more popular. The greatest challenge is having a steady and consistent current all throughout the tank. Something about the way they are suspended in the water. I would be wary about building one yourself, although hopefully if they keep growing in popularity the existing ones will become more affordable.

    old topic but in case anybody's interested, it'd be pretty easy to make the tank itself if you have some fiberglassing/woodworking skill. 3/4 cylinder of fiberglass with a flat acrylic or glass viewing window.

    Since jellies live in the open sea mostly, you'd need very good filtration. A public aquarium I went to had plumming under a grate that was under a moon jelly tank. The good thing about marine jellies living in the open water is that you will not need any live rock.
    There were these tiny jellies at that public aquarium which were kept in a rectangular tank. They looked very fragile though.
    Moon jellies are harmless to humans, but they get huge.
    Feeding would also be expensive, as jellies feed off of live plankton.
    I've also heard that jellies only live a few months, so you might not find it worth the time and maintenance.
    I don't think you could do a jelly tank on a budget, but if you really want to you should try and find a saltwater specialty shop and ask them.

    Here is where you might get relief; There are freshwater jellyfish, and it might be worth your time to research those and ask your lfs about them.
    Here is an AC article on freshwater jellies http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/jell...freshwater.php

    Well the freshwater jellyfish aren´t really jellyfish but they are very similar to jellyfish.


    It is possible to build tanks for small jellyfish species (1. max 2 inches across)y ourself for a reasonable sum using large cylyndrical glas vases or similar and glas bowls. However it is not easy and it is easy to break the materials while working on them. I could write an article on it if there is interest.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    The idea of keeping jellyfish is fascinating. I would very much enjoy reading an article about the process!
