bubble shape jellyfish aquarium
My first post on this forum after reading posts for quite a while and getting more and more curious...
I have an project going, an bubble shape jellyfish aquarium.
Actually its like any other jellyfish aquarium but then i change the front panel with an acrylic bubble shape to let the jelly get "in to the room" .
Since i live in Chile i pretty much have to import everything.
Also an already made jelly aquarium from various websites dont offer what i want.
The dimentions will be 1 meter 70 diameter for the bubble , like 80 cm deep
My questions are :
How thick does the bubble have to be ?
if i remain the same water-flow system as in the regulair jellyfish aquarium , will the fish be able to access the bubble ?
Any comments are welcome..

It is a very active forum
But I think we have only ever had one person here who even researched jelly fish
They are not that cammon at all in the hobby, so you you might find it difficult to find others with experiance keeping them.

I don't know of anyone who has done a jelly fish tank, on this forum or on other forums. The are fairly hard to keep and have a short lifespan and can't have any corners in their tank, but other then that I don't know a thing about them.

I also don't believe they are allowed to be sold in most areas.
But then, thread is already old and poster is unresponsive so.....

Also likely not a lot of folks have any clue how to calculate the required thickness of acrylic for the job. You'd have a better chance at a response on a dedicated saltwater only forum.
