DailyDirt: Jellyfish As Pets?
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
If you’re not a dog or cat person, maybe you prefer fish or some other pet that doesn’t require too much attention. If vertebrates — or even invertebrates — are too evolved for your liking, some folks have come up with a few jellyfish aquariums that might suit your tastes. You still need to take care of these creatures, and they’re not immortal (unless your name is Shin Kubota), unfortunately.
- Jellyfish Art has a jellyfish aquarium that looks convenient. At about $340 for the supplies and 3 live moon jellies, it’s not exactly an impulse buy like a pet store goldfish. [url]
- The Darwin Tank is another very nice, but expensive jellyfish tank for nearly $2000. And in case you were wondering, the tank’s name doesn’t mean that you’re trying to pit your pet jellies against each other to cultivate the fittest jellyfish specimen that can live in a glass container. [url]
- The “original” desktop jellyfish tank on Kickstarter was funded in 2012. It’s still available from Jellyfish Art for a bit less than the latest aquarium design, but it’s temporarily out of stock for a bit. [url]
