Photo of the Week - Mastigias papua

Mastigias papua or the Spotted Moon Jelly is a very unique animal in that it will actively hunt prey in the water column, but also harbors photosynthetic zooxanthellae, and requires full spectrum lighting. The adults can be kept in modified box tanks, leaving hobbyists lots of display options.
