Check out this new desktop jelly tank design by Blake and Brock Gratton!
They claim to address some of the issues with other desktop jellyfish aquariums(though their overflow screen’s surface area still looks a bit small!). For example in the Jellyfish Art tank it is common for jellies to become trapped in the bottom substrate(which Jellyfish Art did fix with a new bottom plate) – the Gratton brothers have eliminated this possibility by designing a tank with a single smooth curved bottom, just like many professional pseudo-kreisels. I noticed an aesthetics issue that hasn’t really been addressed yet in the jellyfish tank market, and that is the visible water line. I have observed many comments over the years regarding the visible water lines in jellyfish aquariums!
Looks like $150 gets you an early jellyfish aquarium, tank only. That’s a pretty good price point! For the price/gallon, I think this is a good buy. You are looking at a minimum $300 entry price with other tanks such as the Jellyfish Art Nano and Jellyfish Art Desktop Jellyfish Tank:
$330 Jellyfish Kit (includes 1 jelly, so we could deduct $30 and call it $300) = $300/6 gallons, $50/gallon.
$354 Jelly Cylinder Nano 3 Jelly Kit (includes 3 jellies, so let’s deduct $100) = $254/2 gallons, $127/gallon.
Cubic Orbit 20:
$389 CUBIC ORBIT 20 JELLYFISH AQUARIUM (TANK ONLY) = $389/6 gallons = ~$65/gallon.
$150 SUPER EARLY JELLY – TANK ONLY = $150/5 gallons = $30/gallon.
As you can see you are paying less than half for a desktop jellyfish aquarium(and double for a nano jellyfish tank!). I suggest jumping on this deal, they only have a couple hundred jellyfish aquariums, tank only left on Kickstarter. I have a feeling they will all sell like previous Kickstarters and the Gratton brothers are already half way to their goal…
