  • Largest private Jellyfish tank

    August 2010

    Aquarium Architecture were contracted to design and install the largest privately owned jelly fish tank in the world in early 2010. Commissioned by Chaophraya Restaurants, a high end restaurant chain, the installation took place in the Trafford Centre, Manchester, England. The installation carries a total of approximately 100 Moon Jellyfish, all lit up with Martin Professional Alien LED lights to give a striking marine blue effect.

    Jelly fish tank has become the new must have in aquarium design, with the UK now possessing the two of the largest privately owned installations to date. Chaophraya restaurants were suitably impressed with their installation and as a result have just placed an order for a second tank to be installed.

    Jellyfish are elegant and have relaxing movements which makes them look like a living piece of art. Their popularity has increased over the last couple of years with more clients wanting to own a jellyfish tank. Jellyfish can be kept in an aquarium as long as it has the right setup and the owner knows how to properly look after these mesmerizing creatures. It’s good to know from the start that jellyfish have very specific requirements including aquarium shape, food and water properties.

    With regards to the tank the most important thing is keeping jellyfish away from the outflow and preventing them from getting sucked into a filter. Therefore, it takes a special type of tank and filter setup for keeping jellyfish. Jellyfish also need precise water flows that will keep them up and off the bottom of the tank. Furthermore, the aquarium needs to be kept minimalist and aquascaping must be avoided as it may injure the jellyfish.

    In addition, jellyfish require excellent water quality in order to be healthy. Temperatures vary between 12°C to 21°C. While jellyfish can recover from a lower temperature as long as it is noticed within 48 hours, a higher temperature than the recommended one might kill the jellyfish. With regards to salinity for most kinds of jellyfish is about 33ppt. We highly recommend that temperature and salinity is daily checked to make sure that the environment is suitable.

    The holding tank needs to be kept clean at all time to preserve the jellyfish healthy.

    Jellyfish require particular food depending which can usually be found in specialty stores or supplied by aquarium maintenance companies. It is important to know not to feed the jellyfish food items that are bigger that the jellyfish themselves as it might kill them. Also, it is not recommended to overfeed the jellyfish. They need to be daily well fed to have the energy to grow and regenerate damaged parts, but overfeeding can harm them.

    The most common type of jellyfish as well as the most adaptable to captivity is moon jellyfish. They are translucent and take color from the light being used making them look purple, pink, peach…
