I’m looking to buy my first moon jelly however have only done a small bit of reading so far. How do I know how much salt to add to my 60litre biorb to get the correct salinity? Also, is a biorb tank suitable to house them? It has a central water filter which I intend to buy a cap for to prevent them getting stuck. I have contacted a seller of moon jellyfish who advised this tank wouldn’t be suitable however have read elsewhere that actually it is, so confusing! Any help would be appreciated before I make a decision.

From the nation that brought us the Tamagocchi virtual pets comes the latest in craze in real life animal companions.
People in the frantic commercial city Tokyo are buying jellyfish as pets.
They say the sea creatures soothing movements help them relax after a busy day.
It's become such a fad more than three thousand jellyfish have been sold to proud owners in the last year.
After a long stressful day, what better way to unwind than with your adoring pet - a jellyfish.
People in the hectic heart of Tokyo claim the sea creatures soothing movements help them relax.
50 to 60 pet shops in the Tokyo area now sell the sea creatures with them replacing the virtual Tamagocchi pets as the latest craze.
They range in price from about from about 14 to 18 U-S dollars and in just one year three thousand were purchased as pets.
"Our intention, when we first decided to sell jellyfish, was simply to show customers that we have some thing rather unique to sell them. To our surprise, our customer showed great interest in jellyfish. They are struck to see jellyfish in a fish tank and realise they can domesticate them. We now think this could become a fad."

Jellyfish never disturb you and you can even leave the house for a week- it doesn't matter to them.
These attributes conveniently accommodate the hectic Tokyo lifestyle.
"When I first saw jellyfish at a pet shop, I thought they were cute. You know, there are so many kinds of jellyfish at the shop. There are cute little ones as well. Their movements are interesting and they are so sweet."

Moon jellyfish, the most popular kind, were initially placed on sale one year ago.
Since then the creatures' slow, soothing movement have attracted the attention of Japanese shoppers.
Although they are not a lot of trouble to take care of they do need special tanks for their well being.
If bubbles penetrate jellyfish membranes it could be fatal.
And because jellyfish float, care must be taken to keep them from sinking or getting sucked into the tanks purification pump - so the Japanese invented a new airpump system for their new favourite pet.
And as the price of this special equipment is starts to fall, Japan may find itself in the grip of a new pet craze.
