South American Sea Nettle
Chrysaora plocamia - Captive Bred
Roughly 1” diameter and 6-12” long
A gorgeous species of sea nettle not offered before in the US. Featuring tangerine striped bells, deep purple tentacles and long, ruffly arms, these jellies are a show-stopper.
Like all nettle species, SA Nettles start out clear. They eventually adopt a peachy color which develops into tangerine stripes. These will ship out as clearish-pink jellies- their stripes will develop with age and growth.
