The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport has some really neat jellyfish tanks. I took a ton of pictures, I'll see if I can dig them up.

I'd think the main requirement would be to cover the powerhead intakes to prevent the jellyfish from being sucked in.

I am developing a plan to run a tank. the most important things are:

1. Avoid any sharp edges or screens that might damage the jelly bell.
2. you must have constant water motion to keep them from settling on the bottom of the tank.
3. your filtration must be good but you cant have any heavy current from the drain or return, in direct contact with the jellies.
4. You MUST have an adequete supply of bread and peanut butter... what is jelly without bread and peanut butter?

there are the upside down jellies that are fairly easy to keep. they do not require a Kriesel tank, but like most things the intakes are the problem areas.

that is a great link. i was looking at how to DIY one.
