At some point in your life, you’ve probably opened your home to some form of aquatic creatures, whether it was that fish you won at the fair or an entire tank of undersea pets. But if you’ve ever felt these more traditional home aquatic setups were lacking, or if you’re just a huge fan of Jellyfish, then the recently unveiled Pulse 160 Jellyfish tank is just exotic enough for you.
If you’ve ever wanted to raise your own Jellyfish, then you’re probably thrilled to see Cubic Aquarium’s latest specialized aquarium system. Housed in a cast-acrylic casing, the Pulse 160 Jellyfish tank bears resemblance to a giant iPhone turned on its side and measures in at over 4-feet long and just about 2-feet tall. Capable of holding up to 46 gallons of water, the tank is said to house up to 15 large Jellies comfortably.
Aside from letting you raise Jellyfish in your very own home, one of the standout features is integrated multi-color LED lights that accentuate the translucent bodies of the critters. But it’s thanks to the built-in two filtration system that the Pulse 160 can even support this kind of sea life. Comprised of a two-stage particle filter and wet/dry trickle filter, the Pulse 160 creates a comfortable environment for the Jellyfish.
The system also boasts flexibility, meaning in the winter you can add a heater to keep your jellyfish pals nice and warm or a chiller so they can cool off in the summer. It also allows you to house various sea life based on the water temperature the specific species may be used to. You can even hook up a second or third tank if you’d like to increase the number of aquatic creatures you’re caring for.
Now if you’re worried that your favorite type of jelly won’t thrive in the Pulse 160 tank, you’ll be thrilled to know that it is a suitable habitat for most Jellyfish. Cubic Aquarium even notes that more exotic species like sea nettles and lions manes will have no problems living it up in your home.
No one said having a Jellyfish habitat in your very own home was gonna come cheap. If you’re looking to add some new squishy pets to the family, be prepared to shell out big time. Aside from the costs of actually feeding and maintaining the little guys, the Pulse 160 tank will run you a whopping $3,299. Despite its high cost, your friends will definitely be jelly of your purchase.
The striking Pulse 160 is our flagship jellyfish aquarium. Its size means it can house a large variety of jellyfish species which look amazing under its inbuilt LED lighting system. This aquarium is perfect for commercial locations but its simple to maintain filtration system also makes it suitable for keeping jellyfish at home. This tank is made of 100% high quality, scratch resistant, cast acrylic and is formed, assembled and polished by hand ensuring an unrivalled quality finish.
