Sea Nettles- Unfortunately, all of the Atlantic Sea Nettles have died. I believe that the cause of most of their deaths was due to a bacterial crash in the filter. I added reverse osmosis water to an already established jellyfish tank. Looking back, this probably nuked most of the bacteria in the filter. With the large density of sea nettles I was housing, the ammonia probably got to them. Three did manage to survive longer in a test cylindrical tank. They seemed to do just fine, but did require a fair amount of food and attention.
This wont be my last shot with the sea nettles though. It's likely I will be going back to gather more jellies this summer or possibly sooner in november. I hope to also acquire some of their polyps at some point as well.
2 species of Moon jellyfish- I still haven't managed to figure out what two species of moon jellies I have. Research online has shown some interesting results. After searching for pictures of Aurelia labiata strobila and ephyra, I found pictures that showed dark purple ephrya. Pictures of Aurelia aurita ephyra were all yellows or whites. At this point, I am thinking that the moons are not Aurelia labiata, but rather both are variations of Aurelia aurita. The only question is which is which? I will be able to tell later, when I obtain mature jellyfish from both variety. I am currently growing out ephyra and juveniles of both, so hopefully we will have some results soon!
My Tanks- Some people were requesting that I show off all of my tanks in a video. Well here you are! :)
