Mediterranean Jelly is very colourful. They move vertically and have many juvenile fish live in and around them. They have eight short oral arms with blue or purple appendages between each oral arms, and look like a fried egg on top. They have to be kept in an extremely wide tank for them to move around and stay happy.
