    Why not try to build a large Kriesel tank for jellies? It's easier & cheaper google it.

    I am very interested to read/see more of your project.
    If you are going to buy a new tank, please pm me the details from your supplier.
    I will need one next year for my dwarf angel breeding project.
    Thanks

    Marcel

    Hey LuckyFish,

    These Jellies require water temperature no more than 18degC and a continuos upward current....or else they die.....Not easy to keep....but beautiful to look at...

    He wanted approx 9k including 100kg live rock. The last he put 3 new 150w halides, with t5. I had a look at it and its really beautiful.

    Hey Suhayl,

    I take it you sent me Mohamed`s number.....thanx a lot bud.
    I was hoping my 32mm glass would`ve been sold by now,which was going to contribute to the money for the cylinder tank as I mentioned to Mohamed.

    Maybe you can take the glass and work out a deal with your friend for the tank...lol....;)

    Sorry Mista , let me make it clearer , a kriesl is not ideal but COULD work, but 99 % of the time wont. Getting the flow correct is just a mission. Too little & they sink , too much and they are on a rollercoaster. A coorectly designed cylindrical tank will provide constant suspension on the other hand.

    hope this makes it clearer ;)

    That is probably the main reason why the TwoOceans keeps their jellies in a cylindrical tank. The marine research aq in seapoint is also tumbling jellies in a KREISEL.
    Kreisel is German. Der Kreis, means the circle.
    Make the circle bigger, bigger...

    I wish I had space Arowana, I would have took the glass. Go check out the tank, im sure you going to like it. When you inviting me over to check your Jelliefish design tank, I want to keep some also. Just its going to cost me a chiller to keep the temp at 18

    Hey Suhyl,

    I would like to go this weekend to Mohamed, I`ll find out if he is available.Coming back to the jelly project......
    Besides the chiller you would need to reconfigure your tank. You would need two pieces of glass at the bottom of your tank at a +-60degree angle to create a "V" shape with a tube on the middle.The tube must be drilled to allow upward flow at all times or else the jellies drop and die.

    So you would need a back up battery/generator as well.I found the adult jellies are more tolerant to slightly higher temperatures....but do not last too long if its too high for too long.......So if you`re still interested and dont mind missing a few family events/birthdays(cause it will keep you busy)....let me know....:thumbup:

    What size tank minimum can one use. Also what exact species Jellie you have,and the size they grow. I always wanted to keep jelllies but thought it was going to be too expensive for the setup. Well at least this is the first Jellie keeper im chatting to.
