When I was younger, my house was filled with all sorts of animals. My mom raised and showed Irish Setter dogs, so we always had 2-3 of them in the house at any given time and we owned 2 ourselves. We also had 2 cats, turtles, goldfish, rabbits and a bird. If you were to come over and visit, you would hear my dad complain that he felt like he was living in Dr. Doolittle’s house! I have carried on the tradition of pet ownership myself, although the number of pets was not nearly what they were when I was younger. I have always had cats, and usually have at least 2 because I think they do better when they have someone to play with. I had an adorable cocker spaniel for a while until we lost him in a car accident. Now that my kids are old enough for the responsibility, I have been interested in adding a few pets to our family. We already have Meep and Fat hazel, our two loving cats and I wanted to get something the kids could help me take care of. I also wanted something that was beautiful to look at and considered unique pets for kids. With the breathtaking tanks from Jellyfish Art, we get the best of both worlds; majestic jellyfish and a cool home accent.
Unique Pets For Kids
When I saw the amazing tank set ups and jellyfish available from Jellyfish Art, I felt this was a good fit for my family. Henry has been asking for an aquarium for some time now but I was hesitant to get him one. I was afraid it would take a lot of work to keep up and I just do not have the time for that. I was also worried that once we got everything set up, the kids may not be as interested as I had hoped and again, the responsibility would fall to me. The moment I showed Henry and Caitlin the tanks and unique pets for kids from Jellyfish Art, they were begging me to say yes!

The instructions are very easy to follow and the setup of the tank takes less than 10 minutes. The only thing you do not have included are the substrate (rocks) or the salt water. We bought distilled water and salt from the pet store and then went home and followed the instructions to set that up. Once the jellies arrived, the water was ready for them and after mixing the water they arrived in and the water we prepared, they were ready for their new home. The fish started swimming around right away and the kids are just fascinated. We have them in the kitchen, so the minute you walk in, you are immediately struck by the gorgeous tank and elegant jellyfish. You will get so much enjoyment from this tank and the fish, they are easy to feed, the tank is self-sufficient, so all you need to do is sit back and enjoy! You can purchase the tanks and jellyfish from the Jellyfish Art website and the prices range from $265 for the Desktop Tank to $685 for the deluxe tank that includes a ton of accessories and additional marine life.
