    Hi all

    Just thought I would share some pics of my small jelly lab. Currently culturing moon jellies, compass jellies and upside down jellies.

    Showing some of my super high tech Kreisels aswell :p They cost millions of rands to build as you can obviously see :tt2::tt2::tt2:.

    Please enjoy, but don't forget to laugh ;).

    I saw your title and thought of a geneticist joke:
    You cannot make a zebra fish but you can make a fruit fly.

    @jimilutz Jellyfish are all about aggressive evolution, what a pleasure to manipulate :thumbup:

    @dallasg yeap, for exhibits and export of medusa's/polyp cultures to other aquariums. Our local coldwater jellies are actually something really special to learn about.

    I can across this post and your other one on box jellies and actually registered on here just to say that's cool!

    We are currently breeding the following species over in Hong Kong:

    Aurelia aurita
    Sandaria malayensis
    Cotylorhiza tuberculata
    Cassiopea andromeda
    Mastigias papua
    Eirene menoni
    Chrysaora pacifica
    Chrysaora hysoscella
    Chrysaora fuscescens
    Cyanea capillata
    Cyanea lamarckii



    If ever you want to trade any polyps of jellies or information just let me know, its always nice to meet another jellyfish enthusiast!

    Do box jellies produce polyps? If so, have you ever tried to breed them in captivity? You have some really cool species of the coast of SA such as Chrysaora fulgida, Chrysaora africana and Rhizostoma pulmo. Have you had any experience with any of these?

    @jimmyb Thanks bud, jellyfish fever has got me indeed. Polyp exchanges would be awesome, I will PM you. I have experience with the pulmo and africana. They're quite plentiful here.
    @butcherman It's long weekend but I will take some on monday.

    I don't actually see what's going on in the tanks.. All i see is tiny dots.. How about a story to tell us what's actually going on there? Like the purpose of the chemicals perhaps..
