Rhopilema esculentum? and the air tube?

Postby Skottyboy » 05 Feb 2014, 15:24

Hello Cubic.

I dont know if you remenber - i was the guy who had the lions main jelly in my tank :-( Unfortunately it passed away some time ago... Ever since ive been looking for some other jelly than the moon jellies to got into my tank - and then i saw your post on facebook ! Got me soooooo exited ! Cant wait !

When will it be available ? and what will the price be ? Also which parameters does it require ? Cooler ? which food and so on ? I want to get everything ready before it arrives - so tired of having and empty aquarium !!

Also - you mentioned in another tread a tube mod that works as an airstone ? When will that be available ?

Best Regards
Jonas

Hi Jonas

I wouldn't beet your self up too much about the lions main, even public aquariums often have trouble with jellies like that. I think the oxygen and feeding demands were just a bit too much for the tank. It is still one of my favorite videos of our tank though!

We have recently set up a breeding operation under the brand name "exotic aquaculture" and we hope to be breeding over 10 species of jellyfish in six months, possible 20 in a years time. As I'm sure you know, the jellyfish market is still very young around the world and especially in Europe. There are only a few companies supplying jellies and they generally only supply moons. We are trying to change this! We currently have the flame jellies what we posted on facebook available and we are looking for a livestock company in Europe to sell to. I will let you know as soon as they become available there, hopefully not more than a few weeks time.

We have recently finished the design of the aerator and sent it to the factory, we will let you know once we have a batch made and ready to go out.

keep me on the list of needing an aerator!

also, would the tank benefit form the use of a protein skimmer?

A lot of public aquariums will argue against using a protein skimmer with jellies but we have done it successfully in the past. Just make sure there aren't any micro air bubbles escaping from the skimmer into the tank because this will obviously cause problems for your jellies.
