Jellyfish... Probably the only creature I am both scared of yet want to keep in an aquarium. If that's even possible or humane.

It's "humane" in a circular tank with appropriate care and food. Obviously marine water. Bc they don't have the same nervous systems we do they're not aware of boredoms or stress like higher organisms are susceptible to.
There are blooms of jellyfish happening everywhere now. Here in Newfoundland in the bays where fresh meets salt water there are literally millions of jellyfish now, comes and goes.
They're thinking it's caused by the pollution and disruption in ecosystem due to over fishing. (ps, I didn't read the full article) I think they're neat.

Check amazon, they sell a starter kit for $400. Thought about getting it because even the best aquarium I know, in Pa, doesn't sell them or the right tank and supplies.

ATM (Tanked) built t least one jelly tank on their show.

Horror, in this case, is a matter of scale. And Lion fish are overrunning the Caribbean. Pet fish release. Pretty soon, nothing but Lions and Jellies down there.

All I got out of the article is that a box jellyfish is evil

Open your eyes
Now is the time

Yeah they taught people that so they'd go out an fish the heck out of 'em.

The most pitiful part of the Lion infestation is that it was caused by a stupid fishkeeper.

Shaina, all jellies are evil if their populations get out of control. That goes for any species....including H. sapiens sapiens
