    Welcome to MASA Daniel,

    To keep jelly's you will need to have a Kreisel tank running. Google it to find out more, its a means of keeping the jellyfish in constant suspension.

    I wouldnt bother unless you're prepared to
    a) find a place to get them
    b) prepared to do lots of reading on how to care for them
    c) be prepared to buy a chiller - I think they need cool temps...
    c) prepared for a regular feeding regime with high quality food like brine shrimp.

    Its quite a mission IMHO.

    If you looking for a nice little desktop display, rather go with a tiny pico tank with some rad looking softies and inverts. Much cheaper, much less effort, and much cooler. Again, thats just my personal opinion.

    Quick google links:
