Wild Diet

They feed on drifting zooplankton. Individuals also harbour photosynthetic dinoflagellate algae that provides food to the jellyfish.

Behaviour

This jellyfish usually lays mouth upward on the bottom of calm shallow water, gently pulsating its bell to create water flow over its arms.

The female jellyfish produces eggs and holds them until a male jellyfish releases sperm into the water. The female uses her arms and tentacles to gather sperm from the water to fertilize the eggs.
