Jellyfish Pet

Pet Jellyfish

Meet my new pet! We netted this jellyfish in the creek off the south beach at Pawleys Island today. I added it to the aquarium, not entirely sure it was alive (a bucket would have been better than a net). It seems to be doing well. If you have a saltwater aquarium, I highly recommend trying a small jellyfish. They are fascinating to watch. This one has tentacles, but the fish in the tank haven’t had a problem with it. It’s beautiful!

If you live in the Myrtle Beach area watch out for the jellies. They seem to be out in force already, and not just the non-stinging ones.
