What is the lifespan of the Moon Jellyfish?
Moon Jellyfish live up to a year on average in an enclosed, temperature controlled system, although with immaculate care they can live up to an additional year. In the wild, the moon jellyfish typically live anywhere from 3-6 months. Juveniles are produced from polyps in the spring and adults grow throughout the summer. By the end of the summer male and female jellyfish mate and produce polyps, which grow and divide throughout the winter. The polyps start producing juveniles and the cycle repeats in the spring. This means the swimming medusa life stage of jellyfish is only around for a few months during the summer. Jellyfish have delicate tissue, so they are usually damaged by the end of summer and most of them die. In captivity, it's very unlikely for the jellyfish to reproduce, although it is possible, and the adult jellyfish live up to a year on average. There is actually an "immortal" species of jellyfish that was only discovered a few years ago. It is the only animal known to be able to go backwards in its lifecycle and revert back to a larval stage.
What do you feed the Moon Jellyfish?
Jellyfish Art provides a Dry Jellyfish Food specifically formulated for jellyfish made from plankton high in HUFAs (Highly Unsaturated Fatty Acids), which are essential for proper nutrition. We strongly suggest only feeding jellyfish with our recommended food. Other fish foods that claim to be suitable for jellyfish are often low quality. Follow the feeding guide to properly feed your jellyfish with special care not to overfeed which can cause water quality issues.
How do I redeem my jellyfish?

How many Jellyfish can I put in my aquarium?
Jelly Cylinder 5: We do not recommend having more than 5-6 Jellyfish in the Jelly Cylinder 5 (5 gallon) as the water parameters may be difficult to control. More Animals = Higher Nitrates = More water changes required.
Jelly Cylinder NANO: We do not recommend having more than 3 Jellyfish in the Jelly Cylinder NANO (2 gallon) as the water parameters may be difficult to control. More Animals = Higher Nitrates = More water changes required.
