Hugely pretty, the Australian Spotted Jellyfish are quickly becoming a favourite at Pet Jellyfish.
Semi-translucent body with white spots, their body colour ranges from white, light brown, light blue and light green, all covered with white spots.
Very similar in appearance to Spotted Lagoon Jellyfish, the difference with the Australian Spotted Jellyfish is that these jellies have long trailing tails, complete with white blob tips.
Their semi-translucent bell means the lighting of our tanks shimmers through and ‘lights up’ the jelly with the colour of the lighting.
With no sting, these are some of the easiest jellyfish to look after, suitable for beginners or advanced jellyfish keepers alike.
Australian Spotted Jellyfish are photosynthetic, and therefore will require a minimum of 6 hours of white light per day – most customers who keep photosynthetic jellyfish keep the white light of their tank on overnight, to adequately cater for this.

Australian Spotted Jellyfish Lifespan Guide
Australian Spotted Jellyfish have a life span of around a year (roughly 12 months).
Australian Spotted Jellyfish Size Guide
Our Jellyfish are sold at a young age, therefore offering you the maximum possible lifespan for your fish. We provide a mixture of sizes with our orders, there is no need to choose size. These are:
- ‘Juvenile’ size (roughly 2.5cm (1 inch) in diameter)
- ‘Small’ size (roughly 8cm (3 inches) in diameter).
We do not stock larger size Jellyfish, but be aware that your fish will of course grow in their lifetime.
Caring for Australian Spotted Jellyfish
We recommend to feed your Australian Spotted Jellyfish with Baby Brine Shrimp, which can be bought from the vast majority of aquatic shops very cheaply. It’s also worth feeding alternatively with Baby Brine Shrimp alongside our own Medusa Jellyfish Food – one bag provides up to 12 weeks of feeding, so it’s quite cost effective!
They require feeding 1-2 times a day, and prefer a jellyfish tank with a moderate water flow setup, so their casual swimming can be accounted for.
Photosynthesis – Australian Spotted Jellyfish gain their energy from photosynthesis, and so require the white light of your tank to be turned on for roughly 6 hours per day. This can be overnight if you wish, or while you’re at work!
