On a mission to raise $3,000 to make their idea come to life on Kickstarter, the Desktop Jellyfish tank, to date, has raised more than $92,000!
According to their Kickstarter page:
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.
