Husbandry

Cassiopea frondosa (Pallas, 1774)

Its colour can vary from amber-yellow, olive, and greenish. Cassiopea frondosa receives some nutrients from the symbiotic zooxanthellae growing within its tentacles. This Upsidedown Jellyfish is carnivorous and feeds upon plankton and other invertebrates floating in the water.
