It’s a common question – What do Jellyfish eat?

Most jellyfish need to be fed live or frozen baby shrimp.

When unavailable, a good substitute would be ‘Instant Baby Brine’ manufactured by Ocean Nutrition which is available from reputable pet stores.

However, it pays to feed your jellyfish live shrimp or brine now and then to keep it healthy and in peak condition.

Jellyfish may also accept some types of dried planktonic or substitute dried planktonic foods such as our own Cubic Medusa Jellyfish Food.

With particle size of 100 – 350 microns, this planktonic food for all jellyfish and filter feeding invertebrates offers a balanced feeding plan and meets the full nutritional requirements of most breeds.

Watch Jellyfish Eating

The red bits floating in the tank are the jellyfish’s dried food – in the centre of each jellyfish are four “stomachs” which are slowly filling up with food. See how their stomachs are lighting up red!

How Often to Feed Your Jellyfish

Most jellyfish need to be fed daily, at least once, depending on breed and species.

We supply dried jellyfish food (below), a pack of which will last 2-3 months based on a tank with 6 jellies.
