Flame Jellyfish (Rhopilema esculentum - also falsely, Rhopilema esculenta) is a species of Rootmouth Jellyfish (order: Rhizostomae), bred on the East coast of China in large water tanks and released as young Ephyra jellyfishes in large quantities to boost stocks in the natural habitat.

The Rootmouth Jellyfish has a rounded, scalloped bell (head), and is sometimes found top down on the bottom of the sea or aquarium. It has highly branched, short tentacles, which resemble a complex root system. It has a sting, so care should be taken when handling it or while doing maintenance on the aquarium.
