There is no way I could get away with just one jellyfish photo/video so here is the Atlantic Sea Nettle (Chrysaora quinquecirrha). These inhabit the subtropical areas of the Atlantic and IndoPacific. If you see these in the ocean stay away as they pack a powerful “moderate” to “severe” sting which they use to catch smaller prey. They feed on zooplankton, other jellies and crustaceans. They may also consume some small fish, eggs and mosquito larvae. Safely from the tank they are mesmerizing to watch as shown in our Atlantic Sea Nettle Video. The Waikiki Aquarium also has a  giant moon jelly tank with dark lights which is awesome to watch but a lot harder to get nice pictures.
