LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp is like having a pet without the mess

While fish are graceful and fun to look at, those of us who travel frequently couldn’t hope to keep any. Some pets require feeding and playtime, which is fine to ask a friend to do rather than to feed your aquatic creatures and clean out their habitat. One wrong move when cleaning out a tank and it could put all of your fish in danger. No one wants to ruin a friendship over the loss of a beloved pet.

If you’d like to be able to watch the floating movements of a jellyfish, but not actually tend to its well-being, then the LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp would be right up your alley. Of course, these aren’t actual jellyfish, but they certainly look like it. This way there’s no guilt on your end, and no animal cruelty involved. Everyone wins!

Alright, that’s a bit of a stretch, but this is very calming to look at. It’s a tank that has three ‘jellyfish’ that have lifelike movement via a gentle current swilling about. You will need to add some measure of dish soap for things to work properly, but the amount or type is not specified. There will still likely be the occasion to clean out the tank of the soap and water mixture, but it will be few and far in between. The cost is $30, but reading the commentary on how quickly it breaks, or has a loud sound from the motor makes me a bit more than skeptical.
