Lychnorhiza lucerna

A beautiful and charismatic species of jellyfish native to South America. Starting out a clearish lavender color, with age they gradually developed a marbled pattern on their bell, with a deep blue stripe around the edge. Some develop longer, sweeper tentacles and others don't. Moving in a consistent but relaxing manner, Marbled Jellies are enjoyable and fascinating to watch.  

Marbled Jellies are very hardy and easy to care for, making them an excellent species for beginners. Their only special requirements are that they prefer live or frozen baby brine shrimp and they do best in a brackish salinity (see below for more info).
