Brand: Glass Ocean
Product Code: Spotted Lagoon Jellyfish
Spotted jellyfish (or lagoon jellyfish) naturally inhabit quiet bays, harbours and lagoons of the South Pacific. They are easily distinguished by the white spots throughout their body and the eight appendages hanging down from oral arms.
They are very popular in aquarium trades for their variation of colour, which are pale blue, green, pink, orange and yellow, on their semi-translucent body covered with white spots. Instead of single mouth, they have many small mouth openings on their oral arms, which capture small zooplankton. As they depend on the photosynthesis by symbiotic algae for their energy requirements, full spectrum lighting is required in aquariums. Cubic jellyfish aquariums all offer full spectrum lighting.
