Cyanea versicolor 

Lion's Mane Jellyfish have gained a reputation as growing to be the largest animal on the planet. There are actually a handful of Lion's Mane species. We've found one that is perfect for the home aquarium. The Dwarf Lion's Mane reaches a max size of 5" diameter and thrive at around room temperature. Cream colored bodies, with dark red stripes and arms. We raise a specific strain that that develop intense fuchsia and maroon coloration. 

With hefty carnivorous appetites, these jellies will gladly accept frozen Mysis, and other finely diced frozen fish foods in their diet. 

With hundreds of long, mesmerizing tentacles, Dwarf Lion's Mane jellies are an absolute jaw dropper. They fill up a lot of space in their aquarium and stand out from across the room. 

Sizing:

Small: ~ 1/2" diameter with 12"+ tentacles. (Ideal for home aquariums) 

Medium: 1" diameter with 1-2 foot tentacles.
