South American Sea Nettle

South American Sea Nettle

Regular price $120.00 Sale

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.
