Now is the perfect opportunity to get a large Atlantic Sea Nettle, while seeing exactly what you’ll receive. We collected several extra large Atlantic Nettles to fulfill a public aquarium order. These two Nettles were left over. We utilize extensive quarantining to ensure that all wild collected jellies are healthy and disease or pest free. They’ve been in our facility for 2+ weeks.
Atlantic Sea Nettles are a beautiful jellyfish, found in Brackish rivers along the Atlantic Coast. These nettles come in a wide variety of colors. Their bodies are mainly white and they may develop red or brown spots, stripes and colorations. Keeping them at lower salinities will encourage these characteristic patterns. Keeping them at higher salinities often leads to bright white jellies. Atlantic Sea Nettles have long and graceful tentacles that trail along with the jellyfish.
If Moon Jellyfish don’t suit you, Atlantic Sea Nettles make an excellent beginner jellyfish. They are very hardy, and forgiving of mistakes. Smaller than their Pacific relatives, they get about 5" in diameter at max. Much like most other jellyfish, they will grow to meet the confines of their aquarium, meaning they can be kept in smaller tanks.
