I got the 3-Jelly Kit, and it is very impressive.
As majestic as jellyfish are, the tank itself is not to be overlooked. It has a very unique shape, and it is very modern looking. I love how sleek and elegant it looks. It is practically a decor piece on it's own
The light illuminate the jellies, which makes them look even more beautiful.
When you order this tank with jellyfish, all you get in the first shipment is the tank. You set it up and acclimate the water for at least 12 hours. Then you order the jellyfish to be delivered overnight delivery, so they can be acclimated to the tank.
Unfortunately for me, when I ordered, the jellies were out of stock, so I had to wait and wait for about 3 weeks. The anticipation almost killed me, especially since my son asked me every day(multiple times) where they were and when they were coming.
You have to acclimate them for a couple hours when the arrive before you actually put them into the tank. Jellyfish are very delicate, so it is very important that you follow all the instructions exactly. I did everything it said, and I still ended up with dead jellies.
They began to deteriorate and die within 3 -4 days. I still have no idea what actually caused it. I did everything I was supposed to. All I can think is that maybe the bottle seawater that I got was tainted of something, unless the jellies were already ill.
They were so beautiful for the first couple days, and my kids loved them so much. My son is so upset that they are gone. He does not understand death, but he knows they are not around, and he actually cried because of that.
I want to replace them, because I know whatever happened must have just been bad luck, and that if I had more I would keep them alive, but jellies are kind of pricey, and I cannot afford to get more right now. I am thinking of getting fish to live in the tank for now. It is such a cool tank and I don't want it to just be sitting there empty, but my son would probably still not be happy with just regular fish. He really misses the jellies.
A Desktop Jellyfish Kit from Jelllyfish Art would still make an awesome, unique gift though. Just be sure whomever you give this to follows directions well and is willing to give the jellies the care they need. These are not throw away pets like goldfish. They are beautiful and fragile creatures, that it is a pleasure to have as pets.
I would love to pass that pleasure on to someone this Christmas, so of course, a Desktop Jellyfish Take is part of the Christmas Wishes event. One lucky fan will win a 1-Jelly Desktop Tank Kit. Enter below for your chance to win.
