Advice: Why Do My Jellyfish Keep Dying?

Posted: 10/03/2015
Why Do My Jellyfish Keep Dying? Thankfully not too common a question, but one that has recently been asked: why do my pet jellyfish keep dying? Clearly if jellyfish keep dying there is something amiss: and it is probably an underlying issue with tank management. Please review these primary factors that affect the health of jellyfish: Jellyfish Aquarium Water Parameters Whilst Jellyfish are more tolerant of water chemistry, they are sensitive to water salinity, PH and any water additives. Using an hydrometer, ensure water salinity reading is at 1025sg or 34-35ppt, and any water added during water changes is salted RO water that has been either bought as pre-mix or mixed at the correct salinity levels for at least 24 hours. PH should be in the 7.9 - 8.4 range Temperature should be 13 - 26°C - generally a degree or two below ambient room temperature negating the need for heating; though chiller attachment may be required if the ambient temperature regularly rises abov ... more

Advice: Why Are My Jellyfish Shrinking?

Posted: 10/03/2015
Advice: Shrinking Jellyfish One of the most common questions we are asked is, why are my jellyfish shrinking? ​The only reason jellyfish will shrink is because they aren’t getting enough food. Both in the wild and aquarium settings, jellyfish grow or shrink dependent on the food available.  All jellyfish need feeding daily with sufficient food to sustain them and the amounts eaten and frequency of feeding will depend on their natural abilities and habits.  For instance,  some species are more active than others - Blubbers are more energetic than Moons and require more food to compensate for that energy used. With Moon jellyfish you can see that they have fed as their 4 stomachs - the four-leaf clover visible in their bell - will show full. The amount of food required varies from species to species.  If in any doubt, please ask the feeding requirements of any jellyfish you buy before you order. Please remember: 'little and often' is a good rule of t ... more
