They would be marine :)

I have been PMed by the author of the pics and they were from a not-so-local public aquarium in Hull (The Deep)

Upside-down jellies seem to be the most common in the Marine trade, they don't get too big either. I think a 6' x 2' x 2' with a bit of flow and a colony of jellies would look awesome under actinics :D

Sweet, I went to an aquarium over in France last summer and as soon as you entered after paying you are in a 360 degree tunnel... something like the shark tunnel in most aquariums but it was all the way round you, even underneath you so it was really wierd because it was full of jellies

Congrats Mike - well deserved with that pic! Your award will be sorted in the next 48 hours.

I 'fess - the jellies were mine!
Yes, the tank DID revolve - it helped them survive better, as they were such tiny babies. They have three different "age" tanks, and are rebuilding the adult tank now.

It's lit with UV lights - no flash used.
