Husbandry

Phacellophora camtschatica (Brandt, 1835)

Phacellophora camtschatica, better known as the ried egg jellyfish or egg-yolk jellyfish, is a cool-water species and can be found in many parts of the world's oceans. The egg-yolk jellyfish feeds mostly on smaller jellyfish and other gelatinous zooplankton, which become ensnared in the tentacles. Because the sting of this jellyfish is so weak, many small crustaceans, including larval crabs and Amphipoda, regularly ride on its bell and even steal food from its oral arms and tentacles.

Cyanea capillata is similar but Phacellophora camtschatica can be identified by a transparent margin consisting of 16 large lobes that alternate with smaller lobes.
