Atlantic Lion's Mane Jellyfish
Cyanea fulva 2-4" diameter and 12" long
These were collected as a part of a research project to document and photograph the life cycle of various species of jellyfish. By purchasing these, you are supporting further research projects. These are not a stock item- once sold out we may be out of stock indefinitely.
A bright yellow species of Lion's Mane Jellyfish found from Virginia through New England. These jellies have a ton of long tentacles which really give the tank a full appearance. Active jellies that pulse in a strong, dramatic manner.
We've observed these living in the wild alongside Dwarf Lion's Mane Jellies, although we are unsure if they can be safely kept together in captivity.
Sustainably Sourced: These Lion's Mane Jellyfish have been sustainably hand caught by our skilled and knowledgeable staff here at the Jellyfish Warehouse. Captive breeding efforts are underway with this lovely species. We first start by collecting jellies which appear to be healthy. They are quarantined and fed for a week in our facility. Once they pass quarantine they are ready to go!
