These jellyfish have quite a strong sting and, although they can be kept in an aquarium, they grow pretty huge so are best left for the public aquariums unfortunately. :no:

Their lifespan in the wild is around 9-12 months, possibly longer in captivity. I don't know of anywhere that stock them in the UK current but we hope to get them on the market there via http://www.exoticaquaculture.com early next year.
