Moon jellyfish in a home jellyfish tank by Jellyfish Art

noun - Jellyfish tanks are institutional, home and ornamental aquariums that specialize in maintaining live jellyfish. The jellyfish aquariums are a unique interior decoration with special water flow patterns. First used in public aquariums, jellyfish aquariums are now becoming smaller and used in homes so people can own jellyfish as pets.

Jellyfish tanks require water flow patterns so jellyfish will not get stuck in corners or sucked into filtration intakes. Their food is frozen food high in fatty acids specifically for jellyfish. Home kits come with Moon jellyfish and supply of frozen brine shrimp to start. The market leader in this specialized field is Jellyfish Art.

Synonyms: Jellyfish aquarium
