e've all seen them. Those wonderful jellyfish displays at public aquariums. At least, I sure hope you've had the chance to see them. They are beautiful, graceful, soothing, and most of all super cool. Jellyfish tanks are a great conversation piece, a great draw for marine life, and serve as a perfect example of aquatic husbandry and success. Efforts to learn about jellyfish life, care, and requirements has now culminated with the ability for home hobbyists to keep, raise, and even breed these amazing animals.Temperature ranges for most jellyfish are lower than that of tropical aquariums. While most hobbyists are familiar with a 74 to 82 degree Fahrenheit range they keep their fish at, moon jellyfish are often found in waters in the 50 to 70 degree range. This can be a challenge as chillers are not nearly as common in the hobby as heaters, and it is difficult to keep aquariums cooler than the surrounding room. In most homes it is easy to keep an aquarium at 78 degrees Fahrenheit, but it takes some work to keep them below 70 degrees. I've seen aquariums kept below 70 degrees using only fans for evaporative cooling, but if this isn't possible with your set up then a chiller may be in order. Keeping the jellyfish aquarium in a basement or cooler part of the house is also a good idea.Moon jellyfish can make wonderful aquarium inhabitants. Several hobbyists have had success in not only keeping jellyfish but breeding them and completing their life cycle. These animals are not only successfully kept in home aquaria, but they are collected at incredibly low numbers from the wild with no effect on wild populations. Keeping jellyfish is a fantastic source for gaining knowledge and furthering our understanding of them, and advancing jellyfish husbandry in foods, filtration, system design, grow out and more. In general jellyfish love to eat Artemia nauplii. Which is to say that that they love to eat newly hatched baby brine shrimp. In addition to this, copepods, shrimp, chopped seafood, and zooplankton are also important food sources for jellyfish. Fortunately, there are people harvesting and raising foods for jellyfish on a daily basis, and those foods are available for purchase. The frozen foods are highly nutritious and very convenient to use. But culturing techniques and experiments with other commonly available prepared foods is still on the horizon.Home staging is the art of creating inviting and spacious rooms to sell your house fast. Aquariums are beautiful home decor items that attract a lot of attention. Glass aquarium tanks are impressive and create a challenge for home staging. A small aquarium tank can be moved or removed from a room for homestaging, but medium-size and large tropical fish aquarium tanks make home staging a bit complicated.
