    Hello all, it has been a very long time since I was on here and on the board​.

    I have gotten back to saltwater since my life stopped exploding and now I am setting up a jellyfish tank for my wife.
    I should have the new tank in a week and I was wondering if anyone knows of a place locally that has or can get jellyfish at a reasonable price.
    Also any advice on keeping them would be appreciated.
    Thanks all and I am looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones at the meetings.
    here is the sales photo of the tank we are getting.

    Welcome back. I don't think I've seen any locally, but maybe call around and see if anyone can order them in. Otherwise, I think there are a few places online that will ship them to you. Many of the jellies they sell for the tanks like that live for 9 - 12 months so you will want to find somewhere to easily get replacements.

    Go to Keys Island I know he has some/had some/can get some. They used to have a jelly tank on the counter running before an unfortunate break in :(

    Needless to say I know Ki can get them for you

    Neptunes has also had them in the past. They were selling a tank that included 3 jellyfish that you got through the mail after you bought the tank. I think the whole setup was around $500 and they could get you more jellies if you wanted. hth

    Jellies are going to be a custom order. Pretty much every vender can get them they just have to order them.

    I don't know if you're still interested, but my buddy Sam at Todd's tropical fish in Aurora, usually gets some cool Blue Blubber Jellyfish in.
