A truly affordable jellyfish aquarium

By Leonard Ho - Posted Feb 09, 2017 09:00 AM
Jellyfish aquariums have proven to be extremely popular, but a proper Kreisel jelly tank usually comes with an intimidating price tag. A new aquarium system aims to bring jellyfish tanks to the masses.

The futuristic-looking JellyTank will be available in gloss white and black.

There have been a lot of jellyfish systems to hit the market in recent years, but by and large, they're priced out of the range of most aquarists' budgets.  If you love jellyfish but don't have $400 to 1000+ to spend on a Kreisel aquarium system, the JellyTank may be what you've been waiting for.

The JellyTank is a small five gallon rounded Kriesel aquarium with a built-in filter (bioballs + filter pads) and color-changing LED lights, which can be controlled via a remote control.  The small pump is designed to produce a gentle laminar flow via a full-width spraybar in order to keep your squishy, rudderless jellyfish in constant motion without smacking into hard surfaces.

The JellyTank has partnered with an unidentified "nationally accredited aquaculture and research facility" to supply aquacultured jellyfish.

You can now preorder JellyTanks by contributing to their Kickstarter campaign.  Only three days in, the crowd-source campaign has already surpassed half its target funding goal (in other words, it is safe to say JellyTanks are popular and will reach final production).  "Super early" backers can get a JellyTank system starting at just $150 USD.  The regular retail price will be $250, which still represents a good value for a Kriesel system.
