I want anyone to be able to have their own pet jellyfish.  Through Kickstarter, I’m proud to introduce the Desktop Jellyfish Tank.  It’s the first affordable aquarium designed specifically for jellyfish and it’s as easy to maintain as a regular fish tank.  Now Kickstarter donors can pre-order the first tanks that get produced.

Jellyfish can’t go in a regular fish tank because they get sucked into the filtration intakes and liquefied.  I started a business called Jellyfish Art experimenting with different tank designs in my cousin’s garage until I figured out how to retrofit an existing fish tank to be suitable for jellyfish.  It was a challenging and lengthy process, but it allowed me to start selling the first edition desktop tanks online at jellyfishart.com.  Lots of people loved these tanks, but I still wanted a design I could control from the bottom up that would be specifically designed for jellyfish.  Now after spending a year developing prototypes, I’m proud to finally launch this new Desktop Jellyfish Tank.  It comes with everything you need to get started and Kickstarters have the chance to place pre-orders at a discounted price by donating $350.  Kickstarters get a voucher worth $50 redeemable towards jellyfish and food from our website.

Jellyfish Art is based out of San Francisco and has been featured in:

NY Times - LA Times - ABC - NBC - CBS - NPR - Boston Globe - Many More

Our new Desktop Jellyfish Tank design won Best New Aquarium Product at this year’s Global Pet Expo trade show.

I need your support to get this tank professionally manufactured and available for purchase.  The capital raised on Kickstarter will help get the first batch of tanks produced to meet the minimum order quantity of our factory.  If we meet our goal, we should be able to have the first tanks available within a few months.  Thank you for checking out the Desktop Jellyfish Tank page!

Pre-order the Desktop Jellyfish Tank for a pledge of $350 or more and you will be guaranteed to receive it once the first batch of tanks has been manufactured. Kickstarter donors get a $50 voucher redeemable towards the Beginner's Package (normally $149), which includes 3 Jellyfish and a package of Frozen Food.
