    Hey guys,

    As some of you may know I have a Jewul tank and it still has the standard filter that is comes with,

    Ok so anyway the top of it has a lid and some water stands there, but has a little flow,
    So I was looking at it today and I saw two small jelly fish kinda things, well the swim like jelly fish,
    They look like an upside down feather duster,
    They move with small busts, like they will stand still for a while then move for a few seconds and stop.
    I hope this make sense.
    And noo I cant post pic's they are a little bigger that the size of a needle head...

    Are you perhaps using natural sea water ?

    Hi

    Yes I am,
    I just switched off all flow in my tank and I see a few more now, I can comfirm that they do indeed look like jelly fish, they have a roundish top, which I could not see while they were on top of the filter,

    :eek: do have baby jelly fish in my tank...?

    You could easily have picked up some larvae in the natural sea water which have now transformed into small jellies. They will prob die soon, do you have livestock in the tank ?

    Aww I dont want them to die..
    What do they eat? I have two flag tails, two chromis, one tomato clown and two coral bandeds...
    I counted 5 or 6 in total, will it help if I can put them in one of those gupie breeding tanks that sit in the tank?

    Oh ok I was guessing like a few 100 but dont be surprised I doubt you would only scoop 5 or 6 of them. I would have been worried about a amonia spike but with so few there wont be any, there is very little tissue to rot. So dont stress

    They eat micro plankton so you can forget about them surviving

    They locally caught, They look nice when they small but grow way too big way too fast... nice schooling fish

    by the way, why did you ask what stocking I have?
