It's hard for us to say, if you have a YouTube account you could post up a video?

Hey Santicity,

when you say you have the aerating stone in, how fast of a rate do you have it going?

I had it at a slow bubble and experienced the same thing. After I turned it up, the jellies starting acting normal again.

Now I basically keep it full tilt.

also, I have had good success with Sunset Marine labs food.

I also get my Jellies from her. It seems like she is one of the few retailers that grow their own jellies. I figure if she can keep them alive and growing, her food must be ok. I hadn't much success with JFA food but hadn't tried their newest stuff.

I also have the "reef roids" from the US distributer but don't think it helps the Jellies to grow that much.

We would agree the Sunset Marine Labs food is is one of your best bets in the US until we can get our food on the market over there. Its frozen, enriched artemia nauplii (baby brine shrimp) and although it will pollute the water a tiny but more than live baby brine shrimp it saves a lot of time and effort in hatching them and it works quite well.
